New Research: Electronic Performance Monitoring


Interested in employee surveillance? A new paper from WAVE lab members Dan Ravid, Dave Tomczak, Jerod White, and Dr. Behrend offers a comprehensive review and research agenda for electronic performance monitoring (EPM) research. EPM refers to the use of technology to observe, record, and analyze information about employee behavior. Organizations use EPM in many forms, such as video surveillance systems, internet activity trackers, GPS trackers, and wearable safety monitors. In their paper, the authors propose a theory-based typology with four broad characteristics (i.e., purpose, invasiveness, synchronicity, and transparency) to describe the many forms of EPM that exist.
