Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and Spacex, said that remote work was no longer acceptable for Tesla workers in May. According to Qatalog and GitLab, remote workers spend extra time weekly trying to prove they are online and working to their employers. But metaverse environments, a futuristic approach to remote work solutions, also raise concerns for workers about the ability their bosses have to monitor their actions.
However, metaverse-based work, an emerging way of doing remote work, also presents its own set of difficulties.
The survey, which polled 1,500 workers and 1,500 employers in the U.S., found that 63% of employees are worried about the possibility of their employers collecting their data while working in the metaverse. In the same way, surveillance is also an important concern, with 51% of these workers having fears about their employers collecting real-time location data, and 50% worried about real-time screen monitoring.
