New business survey of blogs, email and IM

On the back of Friday's blog about legal issues and blogging comes a new report about how businesses should beware of a number of growing employee-related "electronic risks", i.e. blogging, email and Instant Messenger (IM).

The report - 2006 Workplace E-Mail, Instant Messaging & Blog Survey (American Management Association (AMA) and The ePolicy Institute) - is reviewed in a briefing entitled: 2006 Workplace E-Mail, Instant Messaging & Blog Survey: Bosses Battle Risk by Firing E-Mail, IM & Blog Violators (AMA).

Even in a short briefing there are plenty of statistics to allow us an idea of how many employers have disciplined their employees for using such technology, what IM really gets used for on working time, employer and blogging policies, and, monitoring employee web activity outside of work time.
