Managers and employees have opposing views of privacy when it comes to employees’ off-duty postings on social networking sites, such as Twitter and Facebook.
Sixty percent of execs responding to a new Deloitte survey say they have a right to know how employees portray their companies online. That clashes with the opinion of 53% of workers who say their off-duty posts are none of their employers’ business.
A majority of employees (61%) say that even if they knew their bosses were monitoring their Facebook postings, they wouldn’t change the content of their posts.
“These virtual communities have increased the potential of reputational risk for many organizations and their brands,” said Deloitte chairwoman Sharon Allen. “Therefore, it is important for executives to be mindful of the implications of this connected world and to elevate the discussion about the risks associated with it to the highest levels of leadership.”
