7 Reasons to Consider Workplace Surveillance

The increasing number of checks on workers by their employer – such as through the monitoring of emails, phone calls and computer use, or using cameras and other technology to keep an eye on their activities – is becoming a worrying issue for many.

In fact, two thirds of workers are concerned that workplace surveillance could be used in a discriminatory way if left unregulated.

Of course, there may well be valid reasons for businesses to begin workplace surveillance and monitoring.

Efficient Time Management

Firstly, there is the obvious: reducing non-work related activities occur during work hours. If the monitoring reveals that the workers are shopping online or socialising on social during work time, management can take actions against the employee. We could probably argue that management is not creating an engaged and motivating environment for their employees if this is happening, but that is a debate for another time.

Loss Prevention

Theft is prevalent in all areas of society, so it would be naive to think it doesn’t happening in business environments. Some forms of ‘theft’ aren’t really a big deal for business, such as loosing a few paper clips. Instead, it is the theft that can put a business at risk that is being tackled, such as an employee selling proprietary company information to a competitor.

Enhanced Safety and Security

Safety is a non-negotiable concept in the workplace. Technology that monitors employees can increase safety particularly for high risk workers, such as those working with heavy machinery, or those working solo and putting themselves in high risk situations.
