Why do companies self harm?

So you have a multi million pound company and no social networking policy in place, hello what are you thinking, they can do what they like, when they like, who are we talking about? You're staff!

If you run any sort of company at all , regardless of size, you need a policy in place especially if your staff have access to social networking platforms like Twitter and Facebook as this gives them licence to say what they like when they like instantly. Nothing can kill a brand or company quicker than disgruntled staff.

So what do you do about it? Review your policy and if you don't have one or your not sure what you need to include in it we can help so don't delay. The longer you leave it the worse it can and will get.

Imagine the scenario you just let one of your staff go, even worse they could still be working for you, and the next thing you know your company is being 'dissed' all over the web and how do you rescue that reputation, not as easy as it sounds.

This might all be a little scary and you're sitting reading this thinking "that's never going to happen to me", but don't be so sure and how do you know it isn't!

That's the best way to kill a company...?
