Event Description

As an organization you likely have an annual budget for advertising, however it is most likely your real influential marketers are already residing inside your organization. Those are your employees.


Many employees share their opinion about their employer on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social media platforms.  Your employees have a powerful voice that can have both a positive and negative impact on your business.


We have all heard triumphant stories of companies that leverage social media to increase their brand awareness and generate new business. But we’ve also heard those stories in which an employee has created significant negative attention and consequences for their employers.

In terms of the internal benefits, social media can be a commanding tool for employees, helping them to collaborate, share ideas and solve problems. And research has shown that over 80% of employees believe that social media improves their working relationships and 60% believe social media supports decision-making processes.


Conversely, 8% of employers have fired employees because of statements made on social media, and 20% of employers have disciplined employees for social media misuse.

Is there middle ground?  Should you allow employees to use social media at work? And if so to what extent?


In this 2 hour session will explore the pros and cons associated with social media in the workplace and look at:

·         Framework for creating a Social Media Policy

·         How to best Communicate your Policy

·         Explore Employee Social Media Rights & Responsibilities (and consequences)

·         Finding a balance between when and how employees can use Social Media in 

          the workplace

·         Discuss the Employers Social Media Rights & Responsibilities
