Employee wellbeing is a strong determinant of how long the organization lasts and how much returns the business gets.
Surveillance systems are not only useful for supermarkets or gas stations. Workplaces can benefit greatly when they have functional security systems in the office building. Without a proper surveillance system, your business is missing out on huge benefits.
Here’s how your business can benefit.
If you are a supervisor or manager, you could use the surveillance system to monitor whatever is happening around the office building and the place where it is happening. This way, you would know who is involved and the extent of crime committed so that the organization could take suitable disciplinary action.
One study by Kristin Morgan at St. Francis University states:
“Employee monitoring is being used to increase customer satisfaction, improve employee performance, and enhance productivity.”
As a manager, you could also use it to determine who is actually working and who is sitting idle or remains away from the desk most of the time, unless there is a valid reason. It also helps identify areas of the office where equipment is not working properly and fix it immediately before it becomes an obstacle.
Protection for employees
Hiring is a risky process; you can never really predict employee behavior, even with all the background checks. Having cameras outside the office also helps prevent criminal activity against employees. In case it happens, there is a higher chance of the criminal getting caught.
Surveillance systems can help monitor employee behavior and performance and protect employees from abuse, harassment and aggression. The management could use video records to hold employees accountable and take disciplinary action if necessary. They help keep a record of suspicious activity.
Having surveillance systems in and around the office building could improve employee performance as they feel assured that they are secure and being looked after.
Maintain customer records
Your organization frequently receives clients or customers. Again, you would not know criminal hiding in plain sight and who could be planning a criminal activity.
Having surveillance cameras helps monitor what clients do and the proceedings with business. Surveillance can justify business exchange between client and employee. It could also prevent the employee or client from engaging in untoward behavior. Therefore, the business can enhance professional practices this way.
