Strategies for managing employees social media use
The reality is that social media is everywhere. It forms part of everyone’s day-to-day life and it is becoming more and more integrated in what we do. In recent years, employers have been, amongst other things, faced with the challenge of how best to manage the social media behaviour of their employees which is linked to the employee’s employment.
Another difficulty faced by employers is how to appropriately determine if an employee’s behaviour on social media is linked to their work?
Join our partner, HR Assured, on Tuesday 21 June for an interactive session during which employers will be taken through how best to manage expectations, the importance of establishing what is expected from the employee at the commencement of the employment relation, implementing any policies that the employer may have in place and ensuring that employees understand what is truly expected of them.
Discussion points include:
- looking at the demographic of the workforce and understating their level of social media usage
- ensuring that employees are aware of the policies of the employer and understand their expectations
- effectively counselling and disciplining employees who misuse social media.
HR Assured events are designed to provide you with some of the basic tools you can use to navigate your business through the complexities of the Australian workplace relations environment. At the end of each event, HR Assured always run a Q&A session, which is your chance to ask us questions about any workplace relations issues that may be affecting your business.
