If your company measures you by number of emails sent, meetings created, hours logged in, teams messages used, you work for a sh$&y employer. If you measure any of this your a sh$&y boss.

“Well Davis we were going to promote you based on the outstanding leadership you showed on the projects you were given, but seems here you took extra time for lunch. I know I hired you to be a leader but you also need to punch the clock right. Your fired.”

This is big data at its worst.

Not sure what you were saying. All I was saying is using surveillance to track your people and evaluate them is about the worst possible way. It is counter productive on every scale.

I am quite passionate about people being hired to have as much freedom as possible to do their jobs. People need to be hired to be leaders to feel empowered to work when they need to and when they don't. To work on things they know are the best things to work on. Not every week will hit over 40 hours. Hours will be in the day and some at night. When people feel the need to be creative they should be able to be and not sit chained to a desk.

Otherwise you have people watch the clock. They become more obsessed with filling an arbitrary metric rather than what you hired them to do.

So back to my point. As the link send says, employers could use this data to evaluate employees. I say that is an awful and short sighted way to do it. That's all.

I think he was just mocking the “your” “you’re” typos.

I agree, they’re not useful metrics for a lot of industries or jobs, but for some they could definitely look and say overall, “hey, you haven’t been too active”.
