A brief reminder to love your Gmail, courtesy of a recent survey of 300 businesses:
A third of employers in the study sacked staffers in the past year for violating workplace E-mail policies. That's up from about one in four last year.
Nearly 40% of the employers in the survey have staffers whose job is to read other staffers' E-mails. And almost half the employers regularly check the contents of the E-mails their people send.
Amazing. Who are these people who think their company email account is in any way private? Is this their first time using the internet? Or is it just carelessness before clicking the "send" button? Honestly, you'd think Krucoff's sacrifice would be lesson enough. But oh, how the cubicle bees have forsaken him.
