During a recent trip, I tried to access my blog from a company's intranet and I was greeted with the following WARNING:
The site you are trying to access is forbidden.
Therefore, your access is being denied.
Wow, my very own leadership development blog.... banned, like some kind of porn site. I felt so sleazy.
I then read an interesting story by AP reporter Martha Irvine about how young workers are pushing employers for more online access. It's one of the more balanced reports I've read on the topic, and got me thinking it might be fun to write another "No bull guide" for employee internet usage.
2. Turn it into a perk that differentiates you as a great place to work.
- Network management
Identity theft is another real and serious issue that a lot of people just don't get. Consider yourself fortunate if your company has a top-notch security geek responsible for your firewall. Take that geek out to lunch some day to learn what he/she does - you'll be impressed.
4. Hang the offenders.
6. Mandatory access to Great Leadership for all employees.
Sorry, I just had to add this.
What do you think? Am I missing something here? What would you change or add, and why?
7/22/09 update: Just for clarification, I was at another company, not my own when I got the "access denied" message.
