Social Media & Electronic Policies within the Workplace

Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, QQ, WeChat, Q Zone, Tumblr, Pintrest, LinkedIn and about 65 more sites which are constantly growing as we find further more inventive ways to socialize and entertain ourselves. 

Social media can be a powerful communication tool for employees, helping them to collaborate, share ideas and solve problems but it is not always positive. Employees spend approximately 32% of their day on Social Media. This has a direct impact on productivity and IT resources. 

Social media can be a wonderful tool for business when used effectively, however, it can decimate the reputation / good will of a business easily. A social media crisis can and normally does develop at the hands of an errant employee.

This discussion is aimed at helping you protect your company image from a social media crisis and dealing with social media and electronic policies within the workplace.

Angus will give you clarity on rights and responsibilities and answer questions like:

  1. What is Social Media?
  2. What are the effects of Social Media?
  3. Can an employer restrict social media or access to social media in the workplace?
  4. Can an employer place restriction on how an employee uses social media even outside the workplace?
  5. What limits can be set?
  6. What policies and steps can be put in place to protect the company?
  7. How can Social Media be used to benefit the company and/or employer / employee relations?
