What would you say to a manager who wants employees engaged in remote work to be on a webcam meeting all day so they can be monitored?
One wonders what the manager is doing so that they are in a position to just be “watching other people work” 🙂
The only thing that I’ve heard is that sometimes there are groups where people like to have videos of each other running, as a kind of simulation of being in an office together. I think for me I’d either find it very distracting, or I’d quickly tune it out.
I think your putative manager should focus more on output than on whether people are making “I am concentrating” expressions to their webcams 🙂
