Work with Marty Nemko, 1/3/16: Workplace Wearables
Wearable bracelets, smart watches, and even implantables are being used in ever more workplaces---to enhance safety and productivity. But some worry about, for example, their potential for invasion of privacy. On the Jan 3, 2016 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I explore the present, promise and perils of workplace wearables with Brent Blum, head of Accenture's Wearable Technology practice. Plus, in the show's 2nd segment, you can call in for a Workover: Whatever career conundrum is besetting you or someone you care about, I can usually help.
Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 AM to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM in San Francisco and worldwide here on KALW.org. The show is archived for a week on the NPR site and in perpetuity on iTunes and here on KALW.org.
