How Employees can use electronic communications in the work place :)

Employees now a’ days have the opportunity to use the web to enhance production and promote a positive attitude in the work place. Although unsafe at times, if employees can follow some simple guidelines/rules, they will be able to successfully use the technology to their advantage.
As kids may see today, many businesses promote their business through social media, online advertisements, and more. This has become very popular for most major businesses today. Employees in the work place should not be able to access social media UNLESS it is authorized by the business. The only real situation I could see where an employee would be authorized to do so was if they were actually responsible for promoting the website online. As well as social media, video conferencing can help make work more efficient. Employees may be at home, on the plane, or in another country, and that may not slow down productivity for the employee. Many times CEO’s may contact their employees through video conferencing if they cannot reach them any other way. Lastly, another way employees can communicate with others in the work place is obviously though email. The convenience of email over powers all other types of communication today, while still being safe and have the ability to be monitored by higher authorities in the business. This helps the employees communicate quickly, yet also has a lot of versatility. For example, workers can send emails with any type of file, such as a word document or PowerPoint.
All in all, electronic communication is almost a necessity in this present business world. It would be much slower to communicate and much less efficient if it was not available to us. There are many options to use; however, employees must be safe with what they use and how they use it, as it is monitored pretty heavily in the work place.
