When Employees Self-monitor and Self-enhance, what does HR do?

Employees, Measure Yourselves (Wall Street Journal):

– “For example, there’s Lumosity, from Lumos Labs Inc., an online system that serves up games employees can play during downtime at work. … The difference is tracking. The games offer a scorecard of your performance and let you follow changes in performance over time, so you can see if you’re getting better or backsliding.”

– “Another approach is tracking how your body works over the course of a workday with a tool such as the emWave2, from HeartMath LLC, which monitors your pulse. You can then look at your stats on a desktop dashboard to see, for instance, what sorts of situations cause you the most stress. The program can then recommend ways to reduce anxiety, such as breathing techniques that can help you reduce your heart rate during a big presentation.”

– “Tracking things at this intimate level might set off all sorts of alarm bells for workers. Many might wonder if an employer could get hold of the information and use it against them. So bosses should ensure that workers have the chance to encrypt or otherwise protect their data.”
