The Boston-based analytics company Humanyze is trying to give employers more information about how employees are spending their time.

It has developed a badge that tracks everything from how much a person sits at his or her desk, to whether they talk during meetings. The information may help companies track productivity. But it also strikes some as an invasion of privacy.

Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with CNN's Maggie Lake about Humanyze.
