Gartner Predicts Huge Rise In Monitoring Of Employees' Social Media Use
Posted 29 May 2012 - 12:42 PM
I have already seen the huge increase in video cameras in the workplace. This resulted in the firing, suspension and layoff of vast numbers of workers for minor transgressions of company rules. ANother point I've seen was the focus of managemnent to find/fabricate claims agaist long time workers to get them to leave/retire so cheaper workers can be hired for minimum wage. These have included alleged statements/claims against employers and contractors on FB and any number of social website meeting places. In the workplace, any idiot who uses their workplace machine to view, post or other personal use needs to be terminated, haven't they had enough warnings?? With the advent of surfing phones, this has blossomed to unheard of proportions and almost epidemic. The powers to be have begun to cull their workforces of longtime members at the higher payscales just to bolster their own incomes. One major CEO got a 5 million bonus for beating the budget by laying off 10,000 employees halfway through the year and sent those jobs offshore at cheaper rates. This can't go on much longer or they will force the government to step in. And what are the unions doing about protecting their members??

That’s right. Employers have already started embracing employee monitoring techniques such as installation of various employee monitoring software’s for e.g. nestersoft, keylogger etc. Companies are even considering deployment of remote support appliances such as RHUB appliance etc. in order to remotely monitor employees computers, desktops laptops etc.
