An understanding of the dos and don’ts of using social media at work is essential to every employee in every organization. An organization’s public image and reputation depend on how well it guides its employees to exercise good judgment when using social media, and on its ability to navigate the difficult situations that arise from social media interactions.
While using social media effectively requires caution and good judgment, it can also have significant benefits, such as creating loyal, long-term customers and improving relationships with employees, vendors, and suppliers. As we gear up for the our Annual Institute this webinar will examine strategies to maximize individual and organization’s social media presence to drive results.

- Recognize the benefits of using social media in the workplace.
- Identify the various legal and ethical risks of using social media in the workplace.
- Protect your organization against legal action resulting from intentional or unintentional violations of law or policy.
- Encourage an “ambassador attitude” in employees.
- Provide guidelines that help employees make good decisions when using social media at work.
