Many employers are jumping on the bandwagon of using tracking software to keep tabs on company provided devices. Knowing our society, ways to monitor employees in the workplace will evolve and become more technologically advanced.
Recently, a Wisconsin vending company decided to test out microchipping employees who volunteered. Here’s everything you need to know about this trending story.
What’s The Story
The Wisconsin vending company, Three Square Market, is trying out its latest microchipping technology on their employees. For now, only employees who voluntarily agree are getting microchipped.
