Abstract

In this exploratory study, we analyze under which circumstances employees are willing to accept tracking and tracing technologies at the workplace inside and outside the employer’s premises. The results from our multi-factorial survey show that employees do not reject these technologies per se. However, they are sensitive, e.g., regarding the transparency and efficiency of the informational changes and the involvement of works councils, and they are rather skeptical if these technologies are to be used for monitoring health and performance. The results indicate that the new technologies at hand will probably be introduced, but the introduction may be subject to bargaining and conflicts between the actors involved.
