1E partnered with Wakefield Research for a groundbreaking new report on one of today’s most controversial corporate practices.
The survey of 1,000 IT managers and IT employees found that while most companies use employee productivity surveillance tech (EPST), IT professionals have serious concerns about their role in the harm such technologies cause to coworkers, teams—and counterintuitively—companies.
“89% of IT managers say their current or former companies use productivity surveillance tech to monitor employees, yet 73% of IT managers are uncomfortable instructing their staff to deploy it.”
This puts IT departments in a bad situation, and it gets much worse: the research shows that deploying employee surveillance software is often ineffective and can ratchet up employee anxiety, distrust, disloyalty, turnover, and more.
