50% of companies haven’t social media policy

This is according to to the report from two professional groups, the Health Care Compliance Association and the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics.

More and more articles are coming about social networking policies for employees.  None of them focus on empowering employees by training them in the risks and benefits of social networking.  If employees think of their engagement in social networking as a chance to show themselves off in a good light to further their employment opportunities, this would greatly help the cause of employers’ success in making sure employees keep within the confines of good social networking policies.

Employees can do more damage more quickly with social networking than with email or other communication policies so getting them on board is critical.
