In a few consultancies that I have done (in Dubai), I have noticed that a few companies do not track the movement of employees or for that matter even their attendance!!!!
While the tracking of movement need not be rigid enough to strangle the employee, do you think there needs to be a simple system, just for accountability?
Right now, in a real estate company, I am facing a dilemma as to whether to bring this into place or not....Sales, Property Management and Property Development- these three depts have a lot of movement outside the premises..... while some work well, there are some who do misuse this....which is not productive for the organization....
To begin with a simple system of just leaving a message with the receptionist sounds ancient but it may work here...i am not sure....
Your views may help me in taking a decision....

Hi Geetha,
Yes, you are right. Its very difficult to trace them. Its quite easy to track the movement of the inbound employees by Biometric Machines etc. But the employees who have to work on field or frequently moves in or out its not that fisible.
But you have to get the support of the departments as well. You bound the employees that they have to submit the report on their daily outdoor activities. Like; Where they were, to whom they meet etc. You can also check them by calling them.
Trust is the most important factor and will give the comfort level to the both employees and employers. But to smoothen all things, its very important to giving them the comfort level.
Further for the sales team and Business development teams, results are more important than office participation. If they are producing results then their is no need to force them or check their movements.
I hope you understand and if you have any query kindly do not hesitate to contact me.
