“Beware! Your boss is Watching” is an article by Rex Roy in AOL which speaks of measures business organizations are taking these days to make sure their employees are not goofing off or cheating on them. As Roy writes: Companies are in business to make money and managers want productive employees.
The top ten ways of monitoring employees are:
RFID (Radio Frequency ID) Cards, In-Office Cameras, Office E-Mail, Office Phones, Mobile Phones, Office Computers, Office Networks, Printer Servers, Google Alerts & Black Boxes.
While I certainly do not support willful misuse of organizational resources ( and I am not talking of people yet), I believe the responsibility of communicating “What’s Right & What’s Not” is that of individual managers.
