Staff involvement is the key

Research by web monitoring provider SurfControl found that 78 per cent of employees wanted access to net porn banned, but wanted to be made aware of monitoring devices.

While the company did not reveal numbers of people surveyed, it said many people were undecided whether email and web monitoring was OK, but nearly 75 per cent of people thought monitoring with web filtering software was acceptable, provided they were notified beforehand.

Jealous colleagues

Recruitment agencies love conducting surveys and it seems they can come up with just about any subject to talk to company employees about.

TMP Worldwide has recently thrown dagger questions to a range of industries to determine whether jealousy was common in the workplace.

The result? Sixty-one per cent of females and 56 per cent of males said jealously was prevalent in their workplace.

Issues found to cause jealousy were favouritism from the boss, salaries, promotions, responsibility and personal relationships.

Drugs at work

The Australian Human Resources Institute is hosting a seminar aimed to give HR professionals more under-standing of how to handle issues of drugs, alcohol and mental health in the workplace.

HR managers and psychologists will provide insight into the ramifications of drugs and alcohol in the workplace and provide ideas on how management can implement or change current controls to handle the issue effectively. The seminar will be held at UWA on March 20. Tickets are $33 for members, $22 for students and $44 for non-members.
