The Big Brother question is upon us. A third of global companies plan to introduce biometrics into their workforce in 2015. Fitness trackers are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the potential for technology to transform how employees are measured, tracked, trained, analyzed and managed.

Listening software, social network monitoring, health monitoring, location tracking, keystroke tracking, video monitoring and other new technologies will yield a heap of big and little data. How this data can, should and will be used is the subject of hot debate.

The workplace community needs to be prepared for the onslaught. This session will open your eyes to the good, the bad and the potentially ugly implications of big data in the workplace.
