The unobserved worker is an inefficient one. That’s one rule of Taylorism, a management theory that aims to increase efficiency. Frederick Winslow Taylor tracked workers’ movements in the late 19th century and regimented workflows through „performance monitoring“. Nowadays, workplace performance is monitored through a variety of methods, technologies and reward systems. But what happens when a pandemic turns our home into our work place? How do we deal with the employers’ desire to observe and control our work in our homes?
