"Blogs" or web logs provide an easy way for people to post opinions on any subject - including work-related issues or individuals. Some businesses have established their own blogs, often written by the CEO. Some companies have fired or disciplined employees for what they say on their blogs.
The best way to handle these concerns is to make clear what the boundaries and expectations of personal blogging might be. An employee blogging policy that spells out the boundaries and then a signed non-disclosure privacy agreement is the best approach.

Blogs or Web Logs
Companies should establish their blogs because of their benefits in the workplace. Blogs help drive traffic to an organization’s website. This factor can give a voice and a personality to the business and brand. Blogging in a business is a great way of communicating with consumers in an informal channel. Blogging encourages consumer conversations and feedback regarding services and products (Dunant, 2014). A business should also blog to establish connections with other individuals in the industry. Inviting people from other industries to write guest posts or comment on blogs acts as a method of growth in the organization. Blogs also act as a quick way to post updates and news about the business. A blog post announces news immediately and acts as a quicker method compared to press releases. Blogging is also a good way of establishing a business with an industry expert. Creating content instead of republishing work from other authors directly contributes to the business’ fields and enhances trust among consumers. Also, the blog could be deemed as a credible source of information, thus, building reputation and prestige for the business.
Yes, employees should be fired for what they say on their blogs. Companies should have the authority to terminate individuals who use their rights to degrade the company. A significant number of employees in America are at will employees. This means that there is no contract of employment and employees can leave at will. As such, employees cannot be allowed to blog about anything concerning the company. Some of the information may not be meant for the public. Information released on employee blogs may also be advantageous to competitors leading to losses for the company. Letting out confidential information may also damage the reputation and public image of the company (Guffey & Loewy, 2010).
