Zane Safrit writes that “38.8% of companies
with more than 20,000 employees
employ staff to read and analyze
outgoing email content.” 

The subordinate of a friend of mine
went on vacation for a week. 
He forwarded his email and voicemail
to my friend (his manager). 

During that week,
his inbox was filled with personal email
including a conversation by a competitor
about his interview the week before
(If you think competitors don’t talk,
you’d be wrong). 

My friend is glad to see the back of this employee. 

In the era of cellphones
and throwaway email addresses,
using the company’s resources
for personal use is simply stupid.

    Thanks for the shout and the link. Funny story. Not so bright employee. Good to see him gone is an understatement.
