ActivTrak
ActivTrak is a versatile workforce analytics and productivity monitoring tool that can be very beneficial in various scenarios, but there are also situations where it might be less appropriate. Here are some specific examples for both: Well-Suited ScenariosRemote Workforce Management:Scenario: A company has many remote employees and wants to ensure productivity and accountability. Benefit: ActivTrak provides insights into how employees spend their time, allowing managers to identify productivity trends, detect unproductive behaviors, and provide targeted support to remote workers.Employee Training and Development:Scenario: An organization wants to identify training needs and measure the effectiveness of training programs.Benefit: By monitoring application usage and time spent on specific tasks, ActivTrak can highlight skill gaps and areas where employees might need additional training. It can also help evaluate if the training programs are effective by tracking productivity improvements. Compliance and Security Monitoring: Scenario: A company must ensure that employees comply with data security policies and do not engage in risky behaviors.Benefit: ActivTrak can monitor activities to ensure compliance with internal policies and regulatory requirements. It can alert managers to potential security breaches or policy violations, helping mitigate risks. Improving Workflow and Processes:Scenario: A business is looking to optimize workflows and improve operational efficiency.Benefit: ActivTrak provides detailed analytics on how work is done, helping managers identify process bottlenecks and inefficiencies. This data-driven approach enables better decision-making and process improvements. Less Appropriate ScenariosHigh Trust and Autonomy Cultures:Scenario: A company promotes a high trust and autonomy culture where employees are given significant freedom to manage their work. Concern: In such environments, monitoring tools like ActivTrak may be perceived as intrusive and counterproductive, potentially harming morale and trust.Creative and Intellectual Work:Scenario: An organization focuses on creative or intellectual work where the quality and outcome are more important than the process.Concern: Monitoring software may not capture the nuances of innovative methods and could create undue pressure on employees. Measuring productivity by time spent on applications or websites may not reflect the actual value of creative work. Privacy-Sensitive Environments:Scenario: A company operates in a region with strict privacy laws or highly emphasizes employee privacy.Concern: ActivTrak's monitoring capabilities may conflict with privacy regulations or the company's policies on employee privacy. It’s essential to ensure that such tools comply with legal and ethical standards. Small Teams or Startups:Scenario: A small team or startup where close collaboration and open communication are the norms.Concern: In smaller teams, direct communication and trust-based management might be more effective than monitoring software. Implementing ActivTrak in such environments might be seen as overkill and could lead to resistance or dissatisfaction. In summary, ActivTrak is best suited for larger organizations with remote workforces, compliance requirements, or a need to optimize workflows. However, it may be less appropriate in environments emphasizing trust, creativity, privacy, or minor, tightly-knit teams. The key is to align the use of ActivTrak with the company’s culture, values, and specific needs.

The Predictive Index
Predictive Index has served us well so far in helping determine key personality traits of salespeople we hire. How will they sell? Is sales a good fit for them? We have not expanded to use it with other teams/depts yet. We primarily use the behavioral assessment (not cognitive).

Pros
ActivTrak
  • Workload: Am I burning my team members out? Do I have team members who are "slacking" in relation to my other team members? Do I have an ALLSTAR that I need to recognize?
  • Activity Breakdown: Where are they spending their time? Where do they get bogged down in getting tasks accomplished?
  • Website Tracking - are they going to places they shouldn't during business hours?
  • Ability to block websites or activities that aren't appropriate for the workplace.

Cons
ActivTrak
  • Alerts for when someone is not working during scheduled hours (although this may already exist and we don't utilize it as I know the alarm feature is pretty comprehensive)
  • Because of our IT configurations, a lot of weird "groups" show up on the dashboard which looks a bit confusing
  • Not having to create a group for 1 employee to see their own data, just allow each user to see their own data once their access account is created

  • In Beta -> Hire -> New Candidates - > I would like to see the ability to create 1 or 2 additional "Type" folders that can be customized for my company. By being able to do this, I can more efficiently manage my potential candidates, rather that every time I go to review a position, having to make these individual selections each time. I would like the favorite icon and the pass icon to remain; however find it extraneous to have to sort through these candidates each time.

We are in agreement that the tool is very handy as a security companion. The system collects and retain relevant historical data to be queried when you desire e.g. in security reviews once a week.

Usability
ActivTrak
ActivTrak is a great product that just keeps growing. Having used it for quite some time, we have been able to see ActivTrak grow and evolve as a product. The ActivTrak webinars are also helpful to get to know and learn the product. ActivTrak really just works with little effort needed after the initial installation

Very easy to use for both administrators and those taking the assessment. This tool is really a game-changer for staffing, onboarding, and retention. It is like having a crystal ball sometimes with insights into the behaviors of job candidates and is critical for finding the right person for the right role.

Support Rating
ActivTrak
Support is always fast and the agents are ready at all times to help when an issue arises, if the tier 1 agent isn't able to provide a solution to the issue they're asked about they quickly escalate the issue to tier 2 or 3 to ensure that the appropriate support is given to the issue at hand to have it quickly solved. No issue we've had so far has taken more than two days to be solved.

The Customer Success team has been quite helpful during the times that I've interreacted with them. I've also found support and implementation to be responsive with any questions related to the initial set up phase or for on going support. Overall we've been pleased with the support offered by Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment.

There should be a way to automatically implement the system without giving users the opportunity to accept or deny the program on their computers.

Alternatives Considered
ActivTrak
We selected ActivTrak for the features we were looking for. One of the main reasons was the deployment for Chromebook's and of course the price. During our demo held with each party, we were impressed with presentation from ActivTrak. One thing we would've liked is for ActivTrak to also be available for deployment to Android phones.

The other assessments that we examined felt more like an SAT exam than a recruitment tool. The results were difficult for our managers to read through and understand. There were a lot of words, with very little actually being said. The PI was succinct and precise.

Return on Investment
ActivTrak
  • Managers are able to see who isn't working, and, do what they do, to increase that (work from home roles)
  • Many employees, during the rollout, were not impressed/satisfied ( without even seeing the console) that their actions were being tracked
  • production has increased.

  • The PI has been very helpful when analyzing employees. You cannot go wrong when you are able to see a candidate or employees work style.
  • The ROI is very positive. A lot of companies have a specific culture that they are trying to create or adhere to. This software helps you see if an employee would be a good fit for your company or not.
