Berrys Property & Business Consultants #berrys
[Full disclosure: I'm Berrys' IT Manager] I totally agree, and have done for years. We don't block any sites other than blatantly illegal or harmful stuff, and our culture means that people feel free to dip in and out of their various social networks, which, after today particularly, are going to be a huge benefit to the business. I know a lot of IT managers who insist on blocking social media, but I've never seen the point. If someone isn't doing any work, it's not the responsibility of IT to police them and take away their toys - it's their line manager who should step in. If someone in your business isn't working, and instead just sitting and staring out of the window, do you brick the window up, or ask them to do some work?
hey Christian thanks for the name check so here is a few thoughts: IT departments are constantly being asked to "monitor" and "manage" staff productivity to such an extent that I wonder what roles departmental managers and team leaders have if the they constantly ask the IT department to supplement their Leadership and team management skills. In my mind it is a failure of managerial and team leader skills to create productive and effective teams if they resort to desktop control practices. The IT Department should not be responsible for the lack of skills in other employees or managers if should be focussed on ensuring availability of technical infrastructure and it can do this and still enable freedom of its users. The role of IT Security should be in controlling and monitoring external access coming into the network not internal access going out, to be fulfilling such a role is to be nothing more than a Digital Prison Guard and the employees are the inmates. I have been managing over 200 desktops in the last 10 years and have not had to implement such restrictions and still delivered uptime and network access. Again thanks for your comment.

ACC Paul Broadbent: Force sees lowest crime rate since 1981
It was the year that Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer married, MTV first aired, the average house price was £24,188 and crime in Nottinghamshire was under 89,000 offences. Now validated statistics for the last financial year show that Nottinghamshire Police has recorded its lowest crime figures since 1981. The force has achieved another 14.2 per cent reduction in crime, compared to the previous year, down 13,990 crimes. While in 1981, the force recorded 88,927 offences, this year there has been 84,329 offences. Offences of burglary, robbery, criminal damage, vehicle crime, and violence have also dropped dramatically throughout 2010/11. A 26.2 per cent reduction in burglary means 2,065 fewer people have been victims. While there has been 2,463 fewer vehicle crimes (- 23.1 per cent), 4,377 fewer offences of criminal damage (- 21.9 per cent), a reduction of 473 robbery offences (-24.5 per cent) and reductions of 235 most serious violence offences (- 27.7 per cent) and 3,142 fewer victims of assault with less serious injury (- 29.4 per cent). In addition to crime reductions, the force has also seen an increase in the number of crimes detected, which means more criminals are being arrested and put before the court. Since 1 April, the force has gone from four to two divisions. However, all four divisional areas saw crime fall. Mansfield and Ashfield (A division) saw a drop of 4,152 offences, down 19.6 per cent; Bassetlaw, Newark and Sherwood (B division) reduced crime by 19.3 per cent (14,093), the city’s crime fell by 3,954 offences (9.8 per cent) and South Notts (D division) recorded a 12.9 per cent reduction – 2,512 fewer crimes. Here, ACC Paul Broadbent says thank you to the people of Nottinghamshire who have helped to bring about such significant crime reductions.
