    You’d be perfectly okay with your boss installing a monitoring device called “OccupEye” that can tell them when you’re at your desk and when you’re not, right? The fact that it has a creepy name doesn’t really help me feel comfortable about such a device. Barclays just installed these sensors to keep track of when their bankers are […] The post Barclays Puts Creepy Sensors to See Where All the Bankers Are appeared first on Evil HR Lady. […]
