Did you know your employee could be looking for another job right under your nose? A study claims that 3 out of 10 of them spend a good amount of time scrolling through different options on their desktop or personal phones. 3 out of 5 of them have admitted to spending over 5 hours looking for work on their current jobs, while 1 in 10 spends over 10 hours. And that’s not even all of it.

The Telegraph reports that out of those who have admitted to on-job searches, 25% confessed to engaging in telephonic interviews while at their current jobs. Many make up stories about emergencies at home to have longer conversations with their potential employers. And only 1 out of 10 end up getting caught.

If these stats worry you, you need to step up and take action. There are a number of apps that can help you monitor your employee’s online activity so you can be in the know when they get into business against the company’s policies.

TeleNav Track

This app is great if you have employees that are always on-the-go. This means courier companies, pizza delivery places, or any other business that deals with a delivery system of sorts. This mobile managing app tracks your employee’s phones through a Web base. This allows you to know where they are at a certain time, and what they are using their phones for. It also lets you to keep track of their working hours. Because it monitors their phones and web, you have a good chance of knowing if they are applying to somewhere else within job hours. You can prevent long interview calls as well, that hinder productivity for you.

Track My Work Force

This is also a web enabled app that helps you monitor your employees on the job. This app is made specifically for iPhone users and is supported by most iOS functions. This will help you know where they are and what they are doing while they are at work. The app has a tracking lag of only 3 minutes. You will need to ask all your employees to install it for this to work properly.  This will aid you in controlling unethical behavior as well as ensure the security of your workforce.

XNSPY

The good thing about XNSPY is that it works fine on most platforms, be it Android or iOS. It also enables you to view the content of any phone that you’ve installed it on. What this will allow you to do is go through the message and call logs of your employee if you suspect they are applying to other places when they really should be getting the work they are ethically contracted to do.  So if you think your employee lied to you when they said they’re talking to their sick grandma, you can go through their logs. Moreover, you track their online activity and GPS location as well.

If you’ve been wondering why you haven’t been getting your targets fast enough, it’s probably because your employees are compromising their work hours for job search. Choose an app that works for your situation and stay one step ahead.
