I am not a number: Towards participatory IoT monitoring in the workplace

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

A dominant narrative around the Internet of Things (IoT) asserts that value will be realized by using resources more efficiently and by creating a better ‘user experience’. On the basis of a small qualitative study of reactions by employees to having their workplace monitored by networked sensors, we offer three guidelines to help ensure that smart office IoT initiatives incorporate a broader set of values and beneficiaries. We suggest that environmental monitoring in the workplace can create more value for ‘users’ and reduce the risk of adverse reactions if employees are more actively involved in the design and communication process.
