We are being ‘strongly encouraged’ to register for the company social media. I’ve avoided doing it for months - the thought of having ‘yamjams’ about continuous improvement, or LEAN really does nothing for me - yet last week I gave into the strong-arm tactics and signed up.
Does anyone else have one of these things at their workplace? Basically, a Twitter-lite place for people to wave their willies about and pat themselves on their back because they’ve finally found ‘a foolproof way to avoid mis-typing passcodes into the phone for conference calls’ or successfully saved ‘£1 by getting their rail tickets printed at office based kiosks rather than at the station’.
I could largely ignore it, but I get twice daily updates by email with a snapshot of the yammer highlights. So far, I’ve restrained from being a sarcastic fucker in the comments section, but I’m sure it’s only going to be a matter of time.
So yeah, you lot. Let’s have a yamjam. DiSjam? SoundPound?
