Managing The Social Media Octopus: The Eight Tentacles Every HR Manager Must Master
|Date / Time:
Social media is everywhere you look in the office today - from the interns on Facebook pages to the VP of marketing charting your company's corporate online strategy. For HR managers, this represents a whole new area for which they must serve as both productivity police and corporate guardian.
From looking for background information on Facebook pages to hiring through LinkedIn, social media has become a dangerous octopus for HR professionals to wrestle - but one that cannot be avoided.
But what can you legally regulate when it comes to employees' social media usage? How can you avoid having to use the hashtag #lawsuit in the future? It's crucial for you to have the answers to these questions and more so you can help keep your employees' productivity up and your organization out of court.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- Why you need to worry about the NLRB - even if you have no unionized workers and no threat of a union on the horizon
- The legal landmines that await you where social media and background checks intersect - and how to avoid them
- How to keep social media a useful part of your hiring strategy, rather than an attention-fragmenting, time-wasting distraction
- What you can - and can't - restrict your employees from doing and saying on social media, on their own time
- Tips for keeping your trade secrets secret in an infinitely connected world
- How the rules on harassment and other inappropriate workplace behavior have changed since the rise of social media and the traditional trouble spots you still need to be on the lookout for
- How to walk the line between maintaining peak levels of employee productivity and cracking down as the morale-killing "keyboard police"
- And more
In just 90 minutes, you'll learn tips for keeping productivity up and lawsuits down when it comes to social media in the workplace. Register now for this informative and timely event risk-free.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
