I read Any Answers every week and there seems to be a large number of questions related to how do we monitor staff to ensure their performance, adherence etc. how do ensure they don’t use the phone, e-mail, etc. and so on.

So my question is this, how many organisations out there promote trust, respect and responsibility among their staff and try to reduce the amount of monitoring, spying and generally appalling breaches of duty of care for their staff in the name of “Employers Rights” and how do they go about this?
