  • As time goes by, more and more businesses are opening up their gated walls and allowing their employees access to these channels. They have to. The more that you empower your employees and trust them the more that they will trust you back. Also, the cream will always rise to the top, and if someone is going to under-perform because of these additional channels, then they will be found much easier and let go. The more that Social tools are incorporated within the SCRM aspect, the more that businesses have to open up.

  • Thanks Mike for visiting my blog and for your comment. I agree with you that as time goes by, more and more businesses will open up their gated walls and allow their employees access to these channels. This will become “normal” or “routine” the way we take internet access from work for granted today.

    I also agree that smart employees will use Social Media channels effectively and rise to the top. The challenge for organizations is to make sure that personal goals and organizational goals point in the same direction so as to leverage “intrinsic” motivators of employees, else employers may lose their “smart” and Social Media “empowered” employees, who may use Social Media effectively and find better career options!

    Thanks again for your comment, much appreciated.

    I think it’s a great opportunity for both the company and its employees to be able to use social media sites freely, just like what IBM is doing. But there are still those who find it useful to make use of systems in order at least have adequate internal controls, just in case problems do occur when it comes to employees who still abuse their internet privileges. Sometimes we can’t really avoid some employees who may try to make their own rules. Again, it’s best to have an internet usage policy but it’s difficult to be implementing them if there are those who still ignore them. See why some companies do use these systems in their organization.
