Orwell’s 1984 is becoming ever more fact than fiction. An increasing number of companies are using devices to track their employees’ movements and conversations. The Financial Times’ Pilita Clark met with Ben Waber, chief executive of Humanyze, which claims it can boost company revenue by tracking what employees actually do all day. Waber’s devices hang around people’s necks and feature microphones and sensors, which clock where they are and who they’re talking to (although not what they’re saying). But that’s not the strangest employee-tracking gadget Clark’s come across. “Other companies are developing smart office chairs that know if you are sitting on them … which adds a whole new meaning to the idea of the bottom line.”
