Control and Surveillance in the Workplace
Am I being secretly watched? Is someone monitoring how well I am doing my job? These just two questions that run through my mind continuously while I am working at Columbia Regional Hospital. I was hired to work in the physical therapy department as a rehabilitation technician about a year and a half ago. During this time, I have discovered a number of ways that I am being controlled in the workplace. I will further discuss how controls are used in the workplace, how the use of the controls affects me, and my opinion on the use of surveillance.
