Privacy is a top concern and people are protective of their home space. While for many people working from home offers benefits of less commute time and work-life balance, for others it is an imposition necessitated by the COVID response. Being mandated to work from home is not the same as volunteering for it. Employers must gain trust and permission to introduce monitoring technologies into that space.
