Put A Lid On It
If your employees work outside the office, beware: Your competitors <i>are </i>watching.
Wander into any public space, and you're sure to see people taking care of business. Whether it's waiting for a flight, eating lunch or standing in line for a latte, employees are working on the run. It's a common sight in today's fast-paced business world, no matter where you are.
But are employees and CEOs alike aware of the dangers of divulging private company information in public spaces, especially in a burgeoning wireless culture that lets us work from anywhere with increasing ease? While technology makes employees more efficient, it also creates new ways for them-whether it's via a cell phone or over a laptop with print in screaming 20-point type-to unintentionally divulge sales figures, the details of a difficult client meeting or even product specs and trade secrets.
