Big Brother has gone corporate

Post by JimC » Thu May 21, 2020 10:41 pm

Your boss has an eye on you if you work from home:

Does your boss know you're reading this article right now?

If you are one of the thousands of Australians who made a rapid shift to working from home this year and are currently logged on, shouldn't you be working?

This is company time, after all.

For an increasing number of Australian workers, it is now the norm to have every movement tracked: what websites you visit; how long you spend on social media; how many keystrokes you do each minute and even when you go to the bathroom.

Sales of software that monitors employees working remotely have surged since the coronavirus pandemic was declared, with some companies reporting a 300 per cent increase in customers in Australia in the last two months.

Careful. Civil liberties sounds like 'right wing talking points' nowadays.

I think the bosses are doing a terrific job in very difficult circumstances. Honestly, I can't praise them highly enough - I really can't.

Sage words, and the kind of thing that should earn a raise, especially in these trying times.

A nice thought on the part of the monitoring software developers, to add an app for your phone so the boss knows where you are. :what:

the Iosphere apparently includes tracking and tracing in an automatic update.

For your safety, of course.

Some clever hacker should develop an app which takes over the boss's app, and only sends reassuring data about hard work being done online...

I worked in a shop that monitored us that closely. That wasn't too bad, but it was a shit company overall.

The employer perspective is the important one to be sensitive to. Those folks have to go through HOURS of productive spying on employees to make sure they aren't wasting time. ESSENTIAL!

I used to work for an old Marine named Fred, who had a different approach. He liked to say, "if you take care of your people, they take care of the customer, and the profits will take care of themselves."

He did alright with that.

I think there is another dimension when a company intrudes into your home...

Yes, I read the OP. This company did that.

They got into our homes along with telecommunications.

Improved their contact with improved telecom.

Maybe the last barrier should be the skin...no implanted electrotics (no matter how cool)
