How Facebook Can Get You Fired – Infographic

fired-for-facebook_52670117e4bd3We’ve all heard the horror stories about employees lashing out on social media about their jobs. This infographic shows how social media can carry heavy consequences for both employers and employees.

7 in 10 adults use social media, and the average person spends 15.5 hours per month on Facebook alone. This gives ample chances for employees and employers to create some large social media blunders-especially when 1 in 4 don’t manage their privacy settings.

Worst Social Media Advice You Can Get – Part 13 – Don’t Let Your Employees Use Social Media

Don’t let your employees use social media.

Logo TheMainStreetAnalyst 8713679455_e0394e3f7e_zFirst of all, it’s useless to try to keep your employees from using social media.

Forbid any use of your company name in social media, and they’ll just create fake profiles that don’t mention you.

Good And Bad Of Employee Owned Tech Devices, BYOD – Infographic

If your company is considering allowing employees to bring their own devices to work, make sure you have a game plan in place.

BYOD has freed up many enterprises from the responsibility of exclusively purchasing and maintaining computing devices, such as notebooks, tablets and smartphones, but companies still need to have policies set in place to make things work.

BizTech magazine has put together an infographic that highlights six core questions every company should consider before moving forward with BYOD:

Who buys the devices?
What’s the right policy?
What’s the employee’s role?
What’s the impact on IT?
How do we tackle security?
How about apps?

For each of these questions, we’ve outlined a good answer, which we’d advise you to follow; a bad answer, which probably isn’t the best way to handle things; and an ugly answer, which should be avoided at all costs. Hopefully, this will help your company remain on the pleasant side of this growing workplace trend.

These problems are giant drawbacks to relocating, but and luckily companies are compensating with incentive packages.

With $48.1 billion in net sales last year, Amazon is certainly the leading Internet retailer. But how does the company fare in other areas, such as employee satisfaction and corporate social responsibility?

Not so well, according to an infographic from MBAOnline, a website that curates business information from the top minds in the blogosphere.

In fact, Amazon seems to put saving money ahead of many other priorities. For example, on a 102-degree day in June 2011, 15 workers in an Amazon warehouse collapsed from the lack of air conditioning, six of whom needed to be rushed to the emergency room. And despite a $5 billion cash reserve, Amazon donates nothing to charities — if an employee wants to deduct a donation from his or her paycheck, he or she has to pay an additional fee…Read More
