As someone who fights for a great end-user experience, despite corporate / shareholder goals, I encourage you to push back if you’re asked to engage in activities that seem like time wasters.
Give valid reasons why, and if possible, suggest alternatives.
Companies often engage in activities to cut costs, or gather information about their staff to gain insight. If not done correctly, it can push staff away & create a negative experience for everybody involved.
Sometimes you just need to trust that your users know what they’re doing, and let them guide you. Not the other way around.
Time wasted is money, productivity & engagement lost.
