Todays Culture Crusher, ah, companies blocking the internet or monitoring social media usage. I’ve talked about this before but if you missed it the high level message is this; Blocking employees from the internet doesn’t increase productivity it just forces employees to waste time doing something else.
News Flash – the employees most likely to spend time on social media sites at work are also most likely to have access to those sites on their smart phones.
Getting your employees to be productive is about getting them engaged not about internet monitoring.
Special thanks to John D from NY who sent this crusher to us.
