Eliza Brecheisen explores the responsibilites of HR and whether it is ever truly on the side of employees.
Work from home has not been the decline of productivity that every big business had predicted it to be. It has hurt normal human habits and mental health, but studies have shown that employees are not unmotivated.

It does not justify widespread breach of privacy.
