Results Are What Matters
If employees are meeting the goals that were outlined and agreed upon at the beginning of the quarter, it doesn't really matter how many hours they put in or if they checked their Facebook hourly. If employees are truly not working enough hours or if they are seemingly wasting excessive amounts of time, the results will speak for themselves.
And results are what you're really after.
