Employers adopt software to monitor at-home workers


As employees shift to working from home, their employers are buying and installing software to monitor them in their new location. Companies such as InterGuard, Time Doctor, Teramind, VeriClock, innerActiv, ActivTrak, and Hubstaff provide a combination of screen monitoring and productivity metrics that managers can check to ensure staff are being productive. In some cases, employers ask staff to stay logged into a video call throughout the work day; others insist on constant status updates.
