A business device that can accurately monitor the efficiency of employees is a CEO's dream device. The Hitachi Business microscope by Hitachi will record a variety of factors when it comes to employees and relay the information.

The human factor in companies is the most varied and wildly inconsistent factor in businesses. One day, morale could be great, other days, productivity can be way down and often companies don't know why.
