A new poll from Morning Consult shows tech workers have come to their limits of employee monitoring.
In fact, around half of employees who said they are not monitored at work would resign before being subjected to this type of tracking.
Since many companies shifted to hybrid and remote policies over the last few years, leaders have relied on this type of software to ensure that employees are remaining engaged and productive wherever they are working from.
However, over half of respondents said they would not accept a new position if the employer utilized surveillance.
Although 7 in 10 tech employees do not believe their employer is monitoring them, the potential for their privacy to be invaded when working outside of the office has become a bigger priority for many.
While some level of surveilling could make sense if the employee is using company-owned devices, more workers are revealing what they will and will not put up with from their managers.
Without addressing these concerns, leaders risk losing the trust of their employees and could be faced with increased resignation rates.
