Social Media in the Workplace

The growing use of social media has wide-ranging implications for the workplace. While it's true that there are huge benefits to our highly connected society, its darker sides are also starting to be felt in areas such as data protection, freedom of speech, online defamation, time theft, cyber-bullying and the invasion of privacy- all of which pose significant risks for businesses and organisations.

This new learning resource examines the challenges and risks that social media and social networking tools pose for employers, looks at the law on virtual communication and provides guidance on how to manage social media use in the workplace.

At the end of the course, participants will:

  • be familiar with social media and social networking tools and understand how and why people use them
  • understand the key risks posed to employers and businesses by social media use and misuse
  •  have a basic understanding of the law and ethics relating to social media be able to explore different ways of managing social media use in the workplace
  • be able to draw up and implement a workplace social media policy
