Am quoted in this article on tech ethics in the workplace:

“Being isolated at home or stuck in a makeshift office doesn’t make work easy for anyone. But what employees need more than ever is real, meaningful relationships with fellow team members, managers, and to feel part of the wider business culture. By all means, automate the mundane out of work. But employees need the freedom to work as creatively and productively as they can. Digital workplace technology should give them the flexibility and choices to do just that. But if you treat your staff like pieces of data, rather than as capable humans, you won’t get very far.”
