Good episode? Give it some love!
Would you let your employer literally get under your skin, implanting a chip so that your employer could track your heart rate and typing speed, for example?

How would you react to a microphone hidden within your ID badge tracking every conversation that you have in the workplace?

This is the growing reality of workplace analytics - technology tracking every move you make within the workplace. One global company take its productivity trackers so seriously, the system fired 300 people in one year.

Workplace analytics is set to become a $1.87bn industry by 2025.

As a business leader, could you employ these tactics on your teams? As an employee, would you be more motivated if your every move was monitored?

In this episode of Mind Your Own Business, I look at where the line needs to be drawn between monitoring performance as a motivator and becoming a Big Brother business. As they say, you can't manage what you don't measure, but how easy is it to cross that line?

Key takeaways:

Monitoring performance vs empowering teammates
The absolute importance of trust in business
Battery-farmed hens vs free-range chickens
The best way to improve performance and productivity across the business
