Messenger benefits vs problems during working hours
Posted on 2009-04-15
I need your opinion on this matter. We have about 60-70 pcs across the network in the company. Recently we noticed that more and more people chatting to each other and I must say that Messenger is one of the favourite software in our office.
This issue need to be handled by the department. We don't want to stop people communicate to each other, but if it is too much, then decision need to be taken seriously as not to misuse working hours for personal stuffs. Unfortunately, there is no intteligent system that can differentiate these, which one to allow and blocked.
Has anyone know any problems that caused serious technical problem to our pc or network caused by people who extensively use messenger in the office ? How to tackle/handle it ?
Blocking Messenger through our Firewall will be considered as our last option.
