It looks like everyone is starting to use Git for version control and I get asked from managers “How can I check who is commiting work and doing all the work?”

The best way to see who is commiting work to your Git repository is easy.  Just go into one of your Git repositories and type the following:
git shortlog -s -n -e –all
and your output should look like:
