What Every Dental Practice Owner Needs to Know About Employee Productivity and Security at Your Dental Practice
Employee productivity and security at your dental practice are two major concerns that you should not ignore. If you are a dental practice owner or dental office manager that is concerned about employees wasting time online using non-work-related websites like Facebook or Twitter - OR WORSE, using company resources to access inappropriate sites - then read on.
Why You Should be Concerned
While it's not uncommon for employees to spend a small amount of work time on relatively harmless activities, such as shopping or visiting a favorite sports site, employers are learning the hard way that employee use or abuse of a dental practice's Internet system can lead to significant liability and time wasted if not monitored.
How to Solve this Problem
Increasing employee productivity and security at your dental practice is possible. Protecting your dental practice requires two simple steps at a minimum. First of all, have a written company policy that details what employees can and can't do with company resources or during company hours. In addition, you'll want to have a content filtering system in place. This will enforce your policy by automatically "policing" your company e-mail and Internet usage, blocking sites and content you don't want your employees to access without hindering their ability to work online.
