    Hello All

    I am interested in knowing if anyone has/is managing their EXEMPT staff remotely.  More specifically, those who work in the Privacy and/or Compliance arena, where productivity standards are harder to quantify as the work is more qualitative in nature, ie. some cases take longer to investigate/close out than others.

    If so, what types of productivity reports/metrics do you or your leadership use to "manage" this type of workforce member?  Or if you just have any ideas to toss at me, I would appreciate that as well.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Cheryl,

    Interesting question, however does your organization use a software database that tracks the events for investigations? If so you could pull reports from that or you could also request that the exempt employee submit quarterly productivity reports of the scope of work.
