|Comrade Carl, Chief Nerd, is Against Digital Detox|
CEO Stan installed video cameras in the open space of the Internet of Things and Big Data teams, in line with our core values of trust-building.
Stan defined the mission statement for the cameras as "discovering what the nerds do all day, because they sure ain't delivering products that our clients use".
When I purchased the video cams, I avoided the term surveillance in the ERP software purchase order.
This morning, CEO Stan texted me to come his office. The walk from my office to his takes 5 seconds. After 3 seconds, I received a second text saying, "Hurry up Gloria for Christ's sake."
I correctly assumed than Stan was upset. As HR manager, I use both big data and feline instinct to prepare myself.
"Gloria", he said as I entered his office, "I want to you confiscate all smartphones in R&D, and ensure that Comrade's Carl's nerds undergo digital detox within 48 hours!" Stan sees HR's police role as a major component of HR business partnership.
To justify his request, Stan showed me 3 sections of video camera from the last week.
Out of character, Stan told me to use a French detox vendor, "because the French are good at infrastructure projects". My Dad, Pierre Elliot, used to say the same thing!
