Many of us who work in Human Resources, or even management, are helpers, at heart. So, when I encountered this quiz online, my first thought was to share it with you for a (gasp) Thanksgiving work break.
After all, I received a press release in email the other day that said that 80% of all employees who play games online during the work day, say that the game playing relieves stress and makes them more productive. This press release was - obviously? - from an online game producing company.
It followed on the heels of a press release that stated that the average employee spends 80 minutes a day surfing the Internet doing non-work-related activities. And, the employees doing the surfing are often your best employees who don't need a whole work day to get all of their work done. The sender? A company specializing in employee monitoring software that guarantees their software snooping will create a 90% decline in the time your employees spend surfing the Web during work hours.

However, before considering such monitoring software, you need to ask yourself what kind of company you want to be. Tie your answer to the results you want to create in this world and to the relationship you want to create with your employees. Trust or no trust?
