You can try Big Brother cameras...see the CBS
website for waste of time shows.

Thanks for the input. I'm glad to see that there are fellow caddies that understand the importance of deadlines and the problems that arise from not meeting them.

I don't believe you can lead an office (or any
endeavor) through Spy Programs or Add-ons.  You need to have a
person/people in the office who is/are accountable.  If you don't have
that, then you need to take a hard look at your staff.  Maybe it is as
simple as taking one or two people who have the experience and rank, and
speaking to them about your goal of meeting deadlines, and how you feel about
making that happen.  It could go a long way to making the office more
productive.  In everything there is a hierarchy, whether you want there to
be one or not.  The trick is making it work for the company and the
employees, so that everyone benefits.

I have spoken with them on a number of occasions. And, I agree that "Spy" programs is not the ideal way to go. I would hate to have the feeling I am always being watched. Fortunately, I have a stronger work ethic than that and never had to worry about it. I don't know if you work for a large organization but, if you do you know the hoops you have to jump through to get things done. I know that, and so do my employees.

I agree: spying on employees is the wrong motivation for work. If you got
slackers, fire them: plenty of honest hard workers out there with no jobs
that will gladly fill your current employees seats.

The office tone is set by the management: if you motivate them, make them
feel part of the team, make deadlines part of their performance/pay package,
encourage internal competition with getting the job done on time and flaw
free, you motivate your employees to perform at their best.
If you 'rule' by fear and intimidation (and now proposed spying), you get no
loyalty, your employees will not perform at their best, and they are just
there pulling a pay check until something better comes along.

You the boss control how the employees behave: if they are not listening to
you, it may be an indication you are not listening to them, and frankly it
sounds like they have no respect for you or your authority. Motivate,
inspire, lead by example and educate, and occasionally fire a slacker or two
or ten: there is no easy answer when you are the boss. Spyware is not a
substitute: it just makes you look petty and vindictive.

As soon as I would find or hear of
anything or anyone (like cameras) spying on me at work, (besides the
web content sniffers, there are too many perverts ruining the internet for the
rest of us), my notice may come shortly after. Thats why I live in the
great US of A.
I suppose I do not bring it on myself or deserve
it, as I tend to work while Im at work.
I would have to agree with Wesley, If you cant
trust the people that work for you, how can you trust them to do good work for
you anyway...
You catch them (edited) around.. warn-em.. catch
them again... can-em..
Take care of your good employees and they will take
care of you..
Are you the principal? Sounds like you may need a
cad manager to crack the whip while you are not there...

If I found out that I was being watched big brother style I'd
immedediatly quit. There is a certian amount of trust needed for a
healthy employer/employee relationship, both parties need to respect
that balance. If you have a bad employee then fire them, don't try to
rebalance the equation by stooping to there level. You would have no
problem at all hiring right now considering the job market.

i worked in an office where they used cameras
after they had some items "stolen"... they said it was for our protection, yeah
right.... i quit about a year after they had them installed.... they put one
right above my cubicle that looked out on the entire wing i worked on... very
unprofessional that company was... they didnt care if the cad techs fell asleep,
as long as they were there from 8-5 to create billable hours... they didnt
have anyone to enforce drawing etiquette
, so
people did what they wanted, even with the cameras.... weed out the weak, and
hire the strong... if people dont produce, get rid of them.... its that
simple... i still deal with non-producers who stare at the monitor all day long,
then want to work overtime... sheesh.. lazy, lazy, lazy......
