Debunking Time Tracking in IT

Companies often use time-tracking to foster efficiency and exercise better control. There is no way to automatically measure if someone working from home is as effective as they are in the office. This is some measure, however not comprehensive.

Due to the post-pandemic work arrangements, more and more companies – especially in IT – use time-tracking solutions on their systems. Not only is this trend wasting money and time (oh, the irony!), but it also sows distrust among the employees and lulls managers into a false sense of being on top of their tasks.

Each position and each person is, of course, unique, but there are objective, general trends that can be observed. Let’s take software developers, for instance – they cannot be effectively measured in terms of time spent on specific tasks. Especially talented individuals can work a few hours and claim that as an output for the whole day. Often, their self-assessment is accurate.
