anti-employer blogging

Filed under: employee communication, Marlène Bragard — meertaligebedrijfscommunicatie @ 7:58 pm

Did you know that one new blog is created every second on the internet and that the ‘blogosphere’ is 60 times larger than it was 3 years ago? Blogging has been thriving these last ten years. It has become a way for smaller companies to grow, to build their renown, to compete with larger companies, or even to face a financial crisis. The blogging world has become a competitive field for businesses.

However, blogging has its bad sides as well. Companies can become the target of anti-company or anti-employers activists’ blogs. In these anti-employer blogs, an employer is the subject of any kind of judgement or slanderous comments. The ‘rogue bloggers’ remain anonymous to avoid any pursuing, which makes it very hard for employers to protect themselves and trace the offenders. More and more targeted employers feel helpless because the method to identify these disloyal employees is expensive and often inefficient.

These two websites provide you with interesting and accurate information on that very problematic issue:
