Check In, Don't Check Up
Technology has radically changed the workplace, in both good and bad ways. The bad part is that a lot of people feel Big Brother is always watching. They know their phone calls can be monitored, that security cameras can record them that their e-mails can be read by supervisors. Some companies even equip their associates with geotracking cell phones so bosses know where people are at all times - are they working on that corporate strategy paper or buying a parakeet at the pet store? None of this makes people feel trusted.
