Thoughts on your employer limiting LinkedIn activity
My employer has rolled out a new policy that employees are no longer allowed to post status updates relating to anything they or the company does. The only posting allowed are those generated by our communications department. We may "like" those but we cannot post or link anything under our own accounts. For instance, if I saw a relevant post to work life balance for women here on FGB and I wanted to share with my LinkedIn network, that would be a prohibited activity. I could forward the article to Communications and if they deemed it relevant to our company's branding and mission, they would post it and I could then share it. If we receive a promotion or earn a credential and want to post it, we must again, send to Communications and they will post and we can share.
We are a mid size company, 300 employees, and primarily a professional, individual contributor workforce.
