Just stumbled across the following video report on social media in the workplace, via Nathan Moore over at Anthology Creative, a local Web Dev firm here in Nashville. I wrote on this before here, and I couldn’t agree more with Nathan’s assessment.
Whatever you do in your free time is a reflection on you, right? You are you. Your actions on the weekend reflect on your 9-to-5 life and vis versa.
I’ll reiterate what I said earlier. Two things must happen (and, indeed, are happening).
1) Employees will be more mindful of their personal behavior and how it reflects on them professionally (or at least they will when they know there’s a digital camera in the room).
2) Employers will become a little laxer when reviewing social networking profiles of employees and potential hires.
Your take? Agree? Disagree?
