It’s time for a policy on employee Twittering

by on
in Career Management,Workplace Communication

Whether they’re shooting off their own “tweets” or just following others, employees using Twitter—the fastest-growing social networking site—are creating liability and PR risks with their 140-character rants, raves and company gossip.

Advice:
Draft a policy on your organization’s expectations for employee’s use of Twitter and other social networking sites. (Some firms set their networks to block access to such sites.) Address usage, disclosure of company info and consequence of disparaging comments about the company or co-workers.
