Social Media Policy, Procedure & Code Of Conduct Primer

Are you a business, not for profit, sports team or volunteer group that uses social media, then our  Social Media Policy, Procedure and Code of Conduct Primer presentation is a must-have for your organization. In today’s world, social media has changed the way in which employers and employees interact with others both inside and outside of the workplace. Social Media has blurred the lines between one’s personal and professional life, and how one’s use of social media can either positively or negatively effect an organization’s reputation (branding), business interests and workplace environment. This blurring has also led to employers being sued, employees being disciplined, in some cases fired, all because of their social media use both on and off the job. Today’s organization need to ask themselves these questions when it comes to their social media: “Do we have a social media policy ?”, “Do we clearly outline how an employee can use our company’s brand online ?” , “Have we provided the appropriate use of social media training to our staff ?”, “If we allow employees to use their personal devices at work (BYOD), do we have policy dictating its use ?”.  This program is designed to provide organizations with an overview of best practices that you can implement to help prevent undesirable outcomes due to the use of social media in the workplace. This program will provide information needed to reduce liability and will recommend best practices specific to policy, procedure and codes of conduct, to help protect both the employer and employee.
