Protecting Productivity or Not

The business equation is that you have a business and you need employees who will take care of business for you and act on your behalf. The problem is: How can you be sure that employees are working for you and not using your business resources for their own purposes? Then add into the mixture the issue of employee use of social media to conduct business and monitoring that use to be sure they are not on their own social media sites doing things they prefer to do.


Social media is a powerful tool when used correctly to engage customers, provide important intelligence about your business in a competitive landscape and build customer loyalty, influence perceptions and many other communication techniques that can reap rich rewards for you. Social media is here to stay.

Certainly there is a downside to the use of social media, including an employeeâs personal social media use at work, the potential for employees to communicate in an irreverent or disrespectful way to customers, the possibility that employees will be derogatory to the employer, employees exposure of confidential information and a number of other pitfalls, all with the understanding that once something appears on social media it is impossible to take it back.


Multi-national companies then need to navigate the disparate rules in various countries for regulating or monitoring an employeeâs use of social media which means that things can get very confusing.

I worked in enterprise business for a number of years and had an employee working for me who managed her husbandâs home based business from her desk. As often happens in large business, a troublesome situation was shuffled off to another supervisor to manage and in effect transferred the difficult person to make them someone elseâs problem. This is especially true when the process for dealing with problem employees is lengthy, time consuming, requires reams of documentation and then can result in a warning or slap on the hands. Barriers to dealing with performance issues are common knowledge to employees who abuse the system and then they will do things they shouldnât be doing at work and repeat as often as they want. Most employees work hard and are dedicated to the success of their employer, but there are times that employees will get away with abusing work time, which is unfair to employees who are dedicated and work hard every day.


Proskauerâs, a prominent law firm base in New York, has conducted their second annual global survey about the use of social media in the workplace. The survey provides a wealth of insight and significant guidance to businesses about strategies to control social media use as well as the laws that govern employee privacy and restricting access for an employee from a global perspective. If you are struggling with social media issues it is well worth the time to explore and use the valuable information.


Jeffrey Bennet writes extensively about issues that affect business and for Retina X Studios, a top of the line spy software provider that was featured on CNN, CBS, Forbes and many other media outlets.
