Etiquette Essentials for the Corporate Blogger

Unfortunately, it's a story that we've come to know: A well-known company gets its reputation tarnished - its bottom line jeopardized - by a worker who divulged too much on a personal blog, maybe spilling the beans on an unannounced product, airing co-worker grievances or worse.


Rather than prohibiting workers from personal blogs (which would be, of course, in violation of free speech), Toolkit Cafe recommends using the "Blogging Disclosure Form" to ensure that the organization is informed of employee's activity. The template aims to serve as a contract that requires the team to disclose blog authorship.


This simple form consists of four questions and a list of blogs that the workers must complete. The template is easily customizable to fit your organization's needs.
