By Liz Murphy

But public "fails" on official social media channels are not the only challenges organizations face in today's fast-paced world of technological innovation. As real-time social networking continues to gain traction, employees are now facing disciplinary actions for tweets, posts and photos made on personal accounts.

Proceed with caution: Employee personality types to watch out for
Fox Business
No employer wants to hire someone with a bad attitude or poor work ethic, and who can blame them? A person with these traits is often less productive and may cause conflict among other employees, ultimately affecting your organization as a whole. Workers with a sunnier disposition, on the other hand, are much more likely to make a positive impact on a company.
