Productivity management approach

Remote work brings additional requirements for collaboration, production and project management. To cope with the challenges that come from this work setup, we developed a comprehensive approach to productivity management. Through it, we are continuously improving the effectiveness of individual, team and organizational efforts, also improving collaboration, learning and output effectiveness.

Productivity Suite

We use a complex set of productivity instruments (Productivity Suite), that includes Jira, time.epam.com, Hubstaff (optional), to gather an extensive set of metrics on work patterns and help our people be more productive without sacrificing personal well-being.

By measuring the right things at the right intervals, we are creating an insights-based coach over individual productivity habits, that helps our team members understand where the time goes, what influences their efficiency and growth, and what leads to stress and burnout. This data-driven solution also adds greater transparency to project delivery, provides insights into team processes, and makes team productivity measurable and, thus, improvable.

Hubstaff application

One of the instruments that you can optionally use as a part of the Producitvity suite is Hubstaff. This is a software tool that serves as a source of time distribution data.

Hubstaff features are limited to:

  • Storing most used applications and websites’ domain info​
  • Storing activity data during your periods of work and time distribution metrics for the key work areas
  • Saving blurred screenshots that are accessible​ only to a specialist by default

Gathered data helps us ensure that a) people understand their own working patterns and can proactively decide how to improve them, and b) that work with the company is as rewarding as possible.

If Hubstaff is used in combination with EPAM’s internal productivity suite, the sourced time distribution data is reviewed as an additional indicator of a person’s productivity.


    Hubstaff does not have access to:

    • Audio or video recording
    • The clipboard, shortcuts or text entered
    • Remote control of a PC or a laptop
    • Individual keystrokes
