Social Media in the Workplace

Blogs, Twitter, Google Plus, Facebook, YouTube – social media is here to stay and its impact on our lives is growing by the day.

The increasing use of social media has wide-ranging implications for today's workplace. While there are huge benefits to our highly connected society, the use of social media can pose challenges for businesses and organisations in areas such as:

  • reputation management
  • online defamation
  • time theft
  • privacy and confidentiality
  • recruitment
  • data protection
  • whistleblowing
  • professional networking
  • cyber-bullying

Available via e-learning or video, the training is structured to allow a flexible approach to your training needs, enabling you to focus on the issues of most importance to your organisation.

Delivered through powerful video sequences that combine interviews with experts, dramatised scenarios 2 and self-contained guidance, the course examines social media from both a managerial and employee perspective and presents effective strategies for both using and managing social media.

Topic-specific training modules examine key areas of concern and set out strategies for managing any potential risks to your business.

Three Drama scenarios provide powerful examples of the impact of social media activity in the workplace and create a springboard for discussion and reflection on key issues and questions.

The Smart Employee's Guide to Social Media offers tips for staff on the responsible use of social media in an informal video presentation and accompanying quick-reference booklet.
