He told us that he just fired 9 people in his department because he caught them participating in that farce today using company time and equipment. That is considered theft and thus leads to immediate termination at my company. He is able to monitor all of their keystrokes, pageviews, faxes, and phonecalls and they know it yet the dummies still did it. Here are some of the highlights he gave us for just todays traffic. -There were a total of around 1200 phone calls...
