Suveilling Employees: Management use Webcams to Enforce Remote Workers
This pandemic has changed the model under which businesses operate. Some businesses shuttered their doors, others sent employees home with to work, and others tried to re-create an office on-line wholly. It has been a forced experiment to test their ability to adapt and continue to work while away from their physical offices. For some, it has been successful, while others have struggled with the technology required. Some employers felt the need to consistently monitor their employees while others placed their trust that they could work independently. What will we see and experience as we begin to go back is the way business will operate in a post-COVID world. Will companies be the same as it was before? Is that good or bad? Will we use what we learned to create a new, better US economy that can thrive through anything thrown at it. I say yes, we will.
