Perhaps recognising the product is unlikely to be popular among employees, including their own, Hitatchi adds that they hope it will help boost employee cooperation, leading to a better atmosphere.



LOARD? lulz

In that case, all of my bosses are in deep doo-doo themselves.

It will allow officious jerks to run free over petty details of how long your ass is in your desk chair versus the real point: how effective are you at doing what you're paid to do. If a person has to pee every 1/2 hour, it means nothing if her productivity is at the top level. Particularly if the company provides free coffee in an effort to simultaneously improve a person's mood and get more work done due to the effects of caffeine.

Goodness, I'm glad I'm not on either end of that stick anymore. Great Caesar's Ghost!

I don't think I've ever heard any of my bosses say anything like "Get back to work". I work in a highly collaborative environment, where things are loose and, the work gets done.

But, I guess that's out of the norm.

If there is nothing more I abhor it is micro managers.
The reason why I really am glad I am in Real Estate now and not with the latest owner of my past Optical store. This man wanted to tell me where to place blank papers on my desk and paper trays to keep things in and what must go in there. How to organize my file draw for my own work and what labels need to be on the files, including color and style.
wtf?
Meanwhile I was his top producer and never took a lunch during a work day.
He would embrace this.

Simply don't work there. I would never work at a place that used those.

Employers -- as a group, there are always exceptions -- have always wanted intrusively to dictate the behavior and even morals of their employees. This is a step back into more intrusions, if anyone actually uses it.

Not such an easy choice for some that have no other options.
