Man­aging home of­fice – HR nav­ig­at­ing through con­trol and pri­vacy
With the rise of home of­fice and flex­ible work­ing schemes, HR is in­creas­ingly con­fron­ted with a new set of chal­lenges: how to con­trol work-re­lated be­ha­viour, how to en­sure com­pli­ance with la­bour law stand­ards and how to meas­ure pro­ductiv­ity re­motely? While good lead­ers man­age to keep an eye on their em­ploy­ees’ pro­ductiv­ity without their phys­ic­al pres­ence and had done so even be­fore the cur­rent pan­dem­ic, oth­ers turn to ad­vanced IT-sys­tems, some go­ing as far as de facto in­tro­du­cing the al­gorithmic boss, as a tempt­ing solu­tion. But these sys­tems do touch upon em­ploy­ees’ pri­vacy, hu­man dig­nity and, of course, gen­er­al data pro­tec­tion is­sues and need to be handled with care.In this CMS Em­ploy­ment Snack Spe­cial, our la­bour law ex­perts and our data pro­tec­tion spe­cial­ists will nav­ig­ate you through these HR chal­lenges of re­mote work, bal­an­cing the need to con­trol with the em­ploy­ees’ right to pri­vacy.
