Companies in China have designed helmets to monitor employees’ brainwaves.
Companies use the data collected from the helmets to calculate stress, depression, and other issues that can affect the performance of employees.
If any issue detected, the worker is told to take a day off or they send that worker to work in another department where the workload is lower.
Hangzhou Zhongheng Electric is one of the many companies which uses these helmets. And they state that this device is made to increase overall work efficiency. They analyze that this technology made their company more productive.
This technology makes more connectivity between employees and employers.
Hangzhou Zhongheng Electric said that the helmets were mainly used to train new employees. They did not comment on whether or not the helmets were only used by new employees, however.
