We’re in a world where we are able to track so much more of what we do online.
Some employers can:
- Monitor the books employees download from our LMS.
- Check the use of the online resources in our learning platforms.
- Check the junk folders to see which emails employees deleted while preparing them.
- Monitor the time emails sit in a person’s inbox unread or unactioned.
- Track entry and exit times from the office and office systems.
- Record people’s phone conversations with our customers.
- Look at internet usage, sites visited, duration and links clicked.
- Install keyloggers to see what else people may write on our systems.
- Track employees location via the GPS in their work mobile.
- See what people have purchased to eat from a canteen using a work account.
When does this access to people’s lives begin to feel uncomfortable?
