SMART, Practical Advice With Governance and Compliance in Mind
At Wiretap, we love collaboration – and today’s online collaboration and messaging tools make it easier than ever to work together. A recent McKinsey study showed that collaboration platforms have the potential to raise the productivity of high-skill knowledge workers by 20 – 25%. Furthermore, between $900 billion and $1.3 trillion in value can be unlocked through the use of fully implemented social technologies.

When we launched Wiretap earlier this year, we found that our name resonated and intrigued, while generating a curiosity that continues to differentiate what we do: extending traditional governance and compliance technologies by providing human-centric insight to enhance employee engagement and reduce the risk of unsafe behavior on enterprise collaboration tools.
On Sunday, November 12, LinkedIn included in its Daily Rundown an article from The Guardian about employee monitoring technology. They then asked for feedback under the hashtag #bigbrotheremployer (nothing leading in that hashtag!).
Full disclosure: I'm the COO of Wiretap™ and I am quoted in The Guardian's article. I thought that it might be helpful to provide a perspective from the point of view of someone who has spent years contemplating the virtues, vices and slippery slopes of the employee monitoring landscape.
