This time next week, I'll be in Denver to speak about
workplace social media issues at the annual Meritas Litigation and Labor & Employment Conference.
In preparing for my session, I came across the following statistics (taken from
a recent survey conducted by DLA Piper):
Of employees who use social media sites for personal use:
Despite these results, only 14% of employers reported
having a social media policy that regulated the use of social media outside the
workplace. In other words, there is still a huge divide between employees' use
of social media and employers' regulation of that use.
Employers, you may think it is common sense that your
employees not Tweet or Facebook about the goings-on in your workplace. These
numbers say otherwise. Doesn't it make sense to have a formal, written policy
to guide the discussion, set expectations, and bridge this gap?
