As you all know, a brave, intimate group agreed to test Hubstaff for us. Looking at the results of the test, I would say that I’m really impressed how the tool works.
I’ve asked around and so far as I’ve heard is that it does make the team more efficient as a whole. Our ‘free trial’ is coming to an end. I took the extra effort to communicate with the owner of Hubstaff. We exchanged a few emails.
The good news is, we are going to be able to use Hubstaff – for free. In exchange, I have agreed to promote them in my blogs.
That being said, I am now officially implementing Hubstaff as one of our measures of accountability as a team. For those who don’t have it installed, please do so as soon as you can.
Some things to be mindful about:
1) If you are not able to maintain at least 7 hours and 45 minutes (we have a full 8 hours to work not considering the 1 hour for lunchbreak and 15 minutes for the ‘free’ break), please send an email to your team leaders and CC me for the reason.
2) If you are not comfortable Hubstaff being turned on while doing something ‘private’ in your laptop, please feel free to pause it.
3) I don’t want to hear any excuses of ‘forgetting to turn Hubstaff on’ so as to not achieving the 7:45 we are all required to undertake
4) If you have problems running Hubstaff or syncing it to your laptop, please make sure to have me check it on Monday
5) I will be regularly checking Hubstaff however I won’t be regularly checking the screenshots as it is too tedious for me. I will only check screenshots of people who are under performing or who are mounting up less than 7 hours per day.
6) Remember that you are serving the Lord and integrity is highly valued. If the output has been awesome and the work ethics has been impeccable, Hubstaff would NOT HAVE BEEN NEEDED.
7) If you have any questions or concerns, please email me or set a meeting with me on a Monday.
I expect everyone to have Hubstaff installed and running this Monday 12nn.
Testing time is over. This is the real deal.
Thank you very much,
