One to watch about being watched!

There is a programme on BBC Two this evening about electronic surveillance in the workplace.

It's called Who's Watching You.

If you miss the programme you have until Monday 8th June to watch it on the BBC's iPlayer.

Some details:

Surveillance is an expanding market and for those wanting to watch and listen there is an extensive armoury.

Adrian Mudd sells spying equipment. Not to James Bond types, but to anyone who wants to listen.

Employers, along with suspicious partners and private detectives, make up the bulk of his customers.

The range of secret kit is extraordinary.

Pens that plug into computers and record every keystroke.

Plugs containing hidden phones that allow you to listen in on a room.

Adrian's business is worth half a million pounds a year.


For more details see When employers become watchers (by Richard Bilton).

The sad part is that we are being watched because we have to be. Businesses are installing surveillance because they are losing money without it, due to theft, slacking on the job, or procedures not being followed. If employees were honest, hard-working, and could follow rules, this would not be necessary. Whatever happened to the simple values of honesty, EARNING a day's pay?

I take your point completely. However, I don't think it's okay (or ethical as well as lawful) to spy on people who, by and large, are not doing anything wrong, and, increasingly, without permission. What is more, people who are willing to spy are unlikely to let other's monitor what they do on a daily basis. If employers want information it should be obtained legally and ethically.
