Wearable technology devices continue to grow in popularity. According to the global technology analyst company, CCS Insight, more than 400 million wearable devices will be in use by 2020.
HR professionals must consider adopting or amending workplace policies in order to address wearable technology in the workplace. For example, many of the wearable devices that are now available make it easy for employees to record video and audio without others’ knowledge, raising privacy and trade secret concerns.
Consider the risks and opportunities that wearable technology introduces to the workplace and develop policies that protect both employer and employee interests.
