Internet technology has become a standard piece of operating equipment in U.S. workplaces. But while the overwhelming majority of companies provide Internet access to some or all of their employees, only a handful offer the training and guidance necessary to effectively use this new, occasionally complicated and potentially dangerous tool. A new study by the Society for Human Resource Management's Issue Management Program explores employers' Internet access and training policies, and what is most striking is how few provide formal guidance to workers on their Internet use. The 1997 SHRM E-mail and World Wide Web Survey found that less than 30 percent of employers have formal policies on the use of the web, and only half provide training on the proper use of e-mail. The study reflects responses from 757 HR professionals in companies of all shapes and sizes. Respondents agreed that the benefits of Internet technology outweighed the negatives.
