there is no 'technical fix'

the company is simply keeping its own copy of a keypair that it 
generates for an employee,
just as it would hold onto a copy of the physical key it generates 
for the lock on the employee's office door

that said, 
it's always a good idea to consult with the legal people 
before any such solutions are implemented

it just seemed reasonable enough and inexpensive enough,
to suggest it to any companies that need it,
and leave the legal follow-up to them

the more companies that adopt a gnupg/pgp solution,
the more that employees will become familiar with encryption,
and are likely to begin to use it privately on their own
