Should bosses be tracking their staff's every move?

Bosses are spying on staff using a Big Brother-style tracker to monitor their every move.

The high-tech device records sleep patterns, fitness, productivity and can even analyse emotions.

We spoke to recruitment agency boss Jane Vincent who used the tracking system and saw productivity levels rise and said it enabled her to pay staff correctly.

However, winner of the first series of The Apprentice Tim Campbell MBE disagrees and says it's a bad idea.

Top five headlines you're waking up to

  1. Theresa May prepares for one of her most important speeches since she became Prime Minister. It follows growing pressure to reveal her Brexit plans, but risks exposing deep splits in the Conservative party. On the show we’re joined by Iain Duncan Smith and Chuka Umunna to discuss further.

  2. Are children too concerned about their body image? Almost a third of 11 to 16 year olds isolate themselves because of body image anxiety according to a YMCA report. Researchers spoke to more than 2,000 secondary school pupils aged 11 to 16 years old and found that more than a third (36%) were willing to do whatever it takes to look good and that nearly two thirds (63%) said what other people think of their looks is important to them.

  3. The increasing pressures on the NHS could result in a rise in dangerous births. Low staffing levels mean that half of women (50%) experience at least one red-flag event during childbirth, according to a new report from the National Federation of Womens Institutes (NFWI) and NCT today. According to The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), red flag events are signs that there may not be enough midwives available to give women and babies the care they need, for example, having to wait more than 30 minutes to get pain relief or over an hour to be given stitches.

  4. School breakfast clubs are becoming increasingly important to parents working patterns . A third of working mums believe they would have to give up work if it wasn't for school breakfast clubs. A fifth of working parents admit to never sitting down and eating breakfast with their children. The Parents Lifeline Study revealed that more than a quarter (27%) of parents feel the absence of a breakfast club would mean at least one parent would be forced out of work, with more mums (33%) than dads bearing this burden.

  5. Are our bosses spying on us? Employers across Britain and North America are fitting their staff with wearable tracker devices to monitor their fitness, productivity and stress levels 24 hours a day. At least four companies - including a major bank and part of the NHS - are using 'sociometric badges' to measure the conditions of their staff.
