Bruce Nuclear fires 100 staff for improper internet usage

CANADA - Bruce Nuclear Power Development (BNPD) has fired approx. 100 employees from various sectors for improper use of internet and email. BNPD employs approx. 3000 people and is approx. a 3 hour drive north west of Toronto.

BNPD insists there was no information leak that would jeopardize the plant's safety record and that the improper usage is unrelated to plant safety.

Which leaves one possibility... a sex scandal and people sending pornographic photos or videos of co-workers to each other, resulting in some obviously improper use of work computers, office politics, dirty rumours and an atmosphere which no doubt causes problems for many.

And now in an attempt to shed some of the bad employees they've fired a bunch of their staff to teach a lesson that using computers improperly and sex scandals will not be tolerated.

And to keep the affair quiet they're not releasing any more info to the media about the nature of the sex scandal and why people were sending the emails to each other.

That sounds like a good situation where a company might want to hire a Corporate Spy.

Corporate Spies is not a new concept... they've been around for decades and they're sometimes employed to spy on other companies. However the new trend is to hire the spy to work from inside and spy on the employees and then report back with who is doing a good job, who is wasting company time or money and basically act as an undercover consultant to determine which employees the company should promote, demote or fire and whether there is any ways to increase the efficiency of the work place.

As such Corporate Spies are becoming more in demand these days from companies looking to increase efficiency during the recession.
