Managers ARE scared to death of social media

8:20:00 AM Posted by Oscar Berg No comments
A study made by the Swedish organization Ledarna where they conducted deep interviews and surveys with managers across Europe has found that more than halv of all managers are afraid that social media will make employees less productive and that sensitive information will leak outside the organization.

More than half of the managers see that social media as a interruptive factor that does not provide any proven value. Peter Liljeros, leadership consultant at "Ledarna" comments:

"That it [social media] might consume time or that sensitive information can be spread has nothing to do with social media. It can just as well happen during a coffee break."
