It’s the story we see time and time again, witnessing the growth of entrepreneurs starting to build and protect the business with years of blood, sweat and tears:
- They train and develop their sales and service personnel
- They instill the desire in their team members to exceed client expectations
- They encourage individuals to grow and advance their professional lives
Sounds great – a win-win for everyone, right?
So, what happens when a team member either jumps ship to work with a competitor or venture out on their own?
In both scenarios, they are leaving your organization with skills developed through your training AND more importantly with your organization’s contact list all contained within their personal cell phone.
How can this happen?
In today’s business economy, owning your data is absolutely essential. Control it: because you’re paying for it!
In the world of business, the people who were once your greatest allies can sometimes become your fiercest competitors. Former employees know your business, they know your customers and they know how to best adapt the two to one another. This combination can make for a dangerous weapon if the employee is fired or quits and decides to use their knowledge and your assets elsewhere.
When sales or service people move on, they often take their contacts with them. Does this mean you need to lose all the valuable business contacts they’ve made during their time at the company, getting paid to acquire and/or service them? NO!
Business owners reserve the right to build and protect the business (all aspects of it) and look at the contents of all incoming and outgoing work emails. To take it further, business owners can now reserve the right to monitor customer interactions and maintain the work-related activities on mobile phones as well.
