If you are reading this at work or on a ConocoPhillips device you could be in trouble.
Read IT policy for monitoring employees. Now understand we've taken this to the next level.
The company has always had the right to monitor everything you do. The problem has always been gathering, collating, analyzing, and then acting upon this data. This has now been resolved.
Everything you do is now collected and collated. You get to work, login, have coffee, go to the bathroom, chat with your friends, then open up that Excel spreadsheet. The new algorithm notes your time of doing nothing and logs "23 minutes" of non-productive work.
You touch the keyboard at 11:08, then next touch it at 11:48... the new algorithm notes your lunch was 100 minutes.
Your time in all Microsoft products is logged and collated. In a typical week your email usage, what web sites you visited, meeting times, and times of inactivity are now logged and collated. Spend time at 2PM on the "retirement analysis" spreadsheet? Surfed ESPN after lunch? Worked on a Powerpont presentation for Sunday school? These are all noted as "UNPRODUCTIVE TIME..."
What's new here is the analysis. Your PC time (or not) is being reviewed and mathematically analyzed around "red flag" parameters, then sent up your chain of command.
This analysis algorithm was first suggested by IT in 2014 but rejected. Now it's been sanctioned.
This lack of trust is on two levels. First, you are not trusted. Second, your manager is not trusted to know what the reports are doing.
Be forwarned. This is already happening. This data analysis has a purpose: it WILL be sorted and used for the 2018 layoffs.
