Here’s a little investment advice from the ThoughtMarauder.
In light of the current War on Gropey men, I expect the workplace, whether it’s a movie set, politicians office, media conglomerate or the local pizza place to become an increasingly contentious environment. Women and Men will want protection: Women from the unwanted advances of Men – and Men from false accusations of inappropriate behavior. With this in mind, the only way to avoid “He said, She said” allegations, with only the characters of the participants to rely on, is impartial evidence.
What will this evidence be?
Round-the-clock video surveillance of every nook and cranny of the workplace. Every office, back room, lobby, restroom, boardroom, parking lot, cafeteria etc..etc..
There are no other options. While surveillance equipment won’t necessarily eliminate the problem, they sure will make a potential perpetrator think twice before acting.
If the powers-that-be don’t think this goes far enough, then expect to be handed a body-cam at work on Monday morning along with an HR presentation describing how to wear it, when to wear it, and the consequences for not wearing it.
That should solve the problem.
“What about my personal Right to privacy?” you ask.
Forget about it!
The second you set foot on the parking lot of private company property you can take a handful of your Rights and put them in the glovebox of your car until you clock out. There’s not a company in the world that wants to defend itself against a “Hostile Work Environment” lawsuit, so their Insurance providers are going to mandate the use of comprehensive video surveillance everywhere – 24/7.
So act now before the Market does. Do your own research. Find out which companies are making this type of equipment and which ones are best positioned to capitalize on it. Then buy.
Five years from now you can park your yacht next to mine in St. Tropez and buy me a $300 bottle of Cristal Champagne (chump change for you) as a way of thanking me for the investment tip.
(Of course I’ll be recording the whole encounter on my bodycam. A man can’t be too careful these days).
