Balance employee privacy with business needs.
The presence of surveillance cameras can make employees more aware of how their time is spent. And better employee productivity is a key driver of your business’ performance and profitability.
It’s your business. You have the right to protect it. You also have the right to record what happens on your premises, within certain legal and ethical boundaries. With a few simple precautions, workers can safeguard their personal privacy on the job. And employers can better protect their businesses and the people who work there.
Finding balance between employee privacy and business needs is essential to developing an effective and defensible monitoring program. If you are considering an employee monitoring program, you are not alone. The majority of businesses now monitor their employees in some way. The growth in employer surveillance systems is significant.
