Recently, the world lost a true legend when iconic businessman Lee Iacocca passed away. Whether you agreed with all of his business decisions or not, no one will deny the impact he had on not only the auto industry, but on U.S. commerce in general. Iacocca once said, “Start with good people, lay out the rules, communicate with your employees, motivate them and reward them. If you do all those things effectively, you can’t miss.” That may sound like an obvious statement, but the truth is that many managers overlook the basics when it comes to how they treat their employees. In the midst of working hard to make a product or service valuable to the customer, we should never take employees for granted. They are, in fact, the backbone of any company -- no matter how small or large, and no matter what industry you may be in. A company is only as good as the employees who work there, and making sure that your employees are doing their best is crucial to the success of your business.

With all the advantages brought about since the advent of the Internet in 1995, technology has also created a stumbling block for employers. Even the most dedicated workers can be tempted to spend time engaged in personal tasks like banking, shopping, or communicating with friends and relatives via social media. In fact, a recent Gallup study suggests that 70% of workers are disengaged from their workday – in other words, the majority of employees in this country waste time on the Internet during work hours.

Obviously, this has a negative impact on productivity, which is why so many managers and company owners have resorted to spying on their employees. Software that is intended to keep track of which websites employees visit and even block certain “undesirable” sites can result in invasion of privacy claims by employees. Worse yet for employers is the fact that many judges stand in the workers’ corner when these claims come up in court.

Fortunately, there is a simple alternative to spying on your workforce: MySammy. Our unique approach to employee monitoring is really just the opposite of spying. In fact, MySammy is designed for both the manager and the employee to use. Rather than blocking websites – some of which may be legitimately useful for the employee’s work-related tasks – MySammy takes a different approach by quantifiably measuring the worker’s productivity. The software helps managers to provide motivation for their workers to succeed and increase their productivity levels. Once their goals are achieved by a motivated workforce, managers can recognize and reward employees for their efforts.

If you want to set your company on the road to success, you would be well advised to follow the advice of Lee Iacocca. Remember -- by helping your employees succeed, you’re helping your company succeed as well.
