The Live Screen Recoding method to monitor the employees, when enabled on the device such as a computer or a mobile phone puts the target under observation. As soon as the user starts using the compatible social media apps the monitoring software will start creating a video recording of the screen and sends it to the person who is doing the surveillance. The recording not only gives you the information that how much time the employee spends on their favorite social media apps on their mobile, tablet or computer but it also tells you that what they do on the social media apps.
Method #4: Screen Shots
One of the best ways to monitor employees to analyze and spot the problems negatively affecting the productivity of a worker at the workplace is to take frequent screenshots of the devices he or she uses.

Measures can be taken to alter the behavior of the employee who spends a lot of time in a distracted state during work but in order to implement the behavior-altering strategies the first step is to monitor and analyze and figure out the solutions from there.
