Survey Shows 39% of Bloggers Publish Sensitive Company Info
E-consultancy has details of a new study by human resources firm Croner, suggesting that up to a third of bloggers risk getting fired due to posting damaging material about their employer.
Croner commissioned YouGov for a survey of 2,000 people which found 39% of bloggers admitted to publishing sensitive or damaging posts about their workplace.
Some companies are now issuing guidelines on employee blogging policy to safeguard against unwelcome disclosures, but the recent case of Petite Anglaise, an English secretary fired from her job as a PA in France for writing about her employer in her own journal, underscores the need for a structured approach.
