A lot of people don’t realise that a company owns their email accounts, and all the emails / content of those accounts. Whaaaat?! Yep! You read that right the first time…
It is very possible that your email account gets monitored or has a system that identifies key words. Crazy right? But it’s all for good reason and no it’s not about watching everything you do.
Not only that, but what you put down in writing cannot be taken back or can be taken in a totally different manner than it was intended. Imagine if someone forwarded that email on without your knowledge or to a supervisor that cost you a friendship, your job, or a promotion? It could even be as simple as someone walking past or seeing over someone’s shoulder what is on the screen. It’s soooo not worth it!
So here’s 7 no no’s for your work email:
If you happen to write anything that isn’t work related or professional on your emails I would think twice, it’s better to be safe than sorry!
Have you experienced this or done this yourself? Share your stories with me, I’d love to hear from you!
