Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
A number of companies have banned Gchat at work. Should yours follow suit?
Google's chat feature is an inexpensive way to communicate with colleagues (along with friends and family) and combat mental fatigue from insanely long workdays. But companies like global auditing firm KPMG believe Gchat's costs outweigh its benefits and gave it the axe years ago.

At the end of the day, banning Gchat at work is a decision that will depend on an individual company.
On a personal note: This blogger once worked at a publicly traded startup where all employees -- including the GC and in-house counsel -- used (and still use) Gchat as a primary form of communication. They use it for fun, too.
However, equally successful companies are content with a more conservative approach and have a blanket ban on Gchat.
Different (key)strokes for different folks.
