A reminder to employers about the power of social media and the ability for disgruntled staff to rapidly share your alleged short-comings with the world. An employee sent his resignation email to every employee of his firm detailing his numerous complaints about his manager, and this quickly went viral on twitter. Now it has to be said that it hardly covers the employee in glory to have behaved in this way but the potential to damage the company’s reputation is a greater concern in our view. What can you do to protect yourself and your business? Do you know how your employees feel and are you dealing with concerns as they arise? Do you have a robust grievance procedure and a strong culture of equality and respect? These are just some of the many ways you can ensure you never find yourself the subject of a social media furore like this one!
