Company health schemes promise to spot emerging staff health concerns through the use of big data, and thereby raise productivity. But who protects employee privacy? Presenter Manuela Saragosa speaks to the head of Chevron's wellness programme, Janis Davis-Street, as well as to privacy advocate Jessica Roberts of the University of Houston Law Center.
