Scientists have discovered the perfect office layout to enable round-the-clock monitoring of employees’ every move. The Panopticon Office allows a small number of executives to constantly observe a large number of employees and ensure they feel unable to stray from their assigned behavioral patterns.
The management scientists behind the study found that the mere potential of being observed was just as effective as actually being observed in ensuring that no spontaneity or dangerous innovation could occur in employees’ work.
The pantopticon office design allows this state of zero creativity and rote fulfillment of tasks to be achieved with any proportion of management to employees.
Other effective measures include a device that automatically breathes down employees’ necks as they work, and an observation camera in the shape of the all-seeing Eye of Sauron, both of which ensure that all employee time is micro-managed down to the micro-second.
