Selfies in the workplace, are they worth your job?


Selfies in the workplace, are they worth your job? Hold your smartphone at arm’s length and point that front-facing camera at yourself in celebration: “Selfie” is now Merriam-Webster approved. It’s difficult to escape the word, it’s everywhere! Selfie’s allow us to document happy occasions such as, festivals, holidays, birth of a new baby and even meeting your favourite celebrity may prompt a selfie but there are places and times when they can get you into a heap of trouble. Selfies in the workplace may seem like a bit of harmless fun and with the emergence of a new app called Snapchat, some find it difficult to resist a quick selfie to send to a group of friends to break up a mundane Monday. This infographic shows the types of things that you should be mindful of next time you decide to celebrate with an ‘it’s Friday’ selfie.
