Why spying on your employees working from home might not be such as a good idea

Would you trust a banker whose own bosses don’t trust? What do banks believe that their employees are intending to commit criminal offences whilst working from home?

Yair Cohen explains why it is wrong for banks to spy on their employee’s activities whilst the employees are working from home.

The issue for many, particularly larger companies, is that on one hand they want  to take advantage of the huge financial savings that are involved in their employees working from home but at the same time they are not willing to or are not able to have a relationships of trust with the same employees.

The way some high paid business consultants have told them they should overcome this issue, effectively by taking charge of the employee’s space at home is outrageous and totally out of touch.

The space in your spare bedroom does not automatically turn into the property of your employer simply because the employer decides that you should be working from home. It those large corporations cannot trust their partners and staff enough to be committed to complying their work duties from home, perhaps they need to ask themselves why this is the case.

Clearly, if the employees start to sense that the working from home business is simply a cost saving exercise by the employers, at the expense of giving away their personal space, their level of commitment to the workplace is be likely to further diminish.
