Instant messaging next HR nightmare

The Denver Business Journal looks at HR issues instant messaging raises in the workplace. Among 300 employees surveyed about instant messaging: “One-third said they had made “sexual advances” over the popular chat and real-time messaging software; and 65 percent said they had used IM to criticize company management.”

Counter that with issues about employee privacy and what happens to employee morale if employees feel spied upon, and it looks like more minefields for companies to tread.
