Creating a Social Media Policy - For HR Practitioners

  • 0 ratings, 30 users enrolled

Course Overview

The importance of a social media policy in the workplace cannot be underestimated. Without clear guidance on what you expect and require from employees when using social media platforms, email and the internet whilst at work, it can be virtually impossible to take further action against those who over-step the mark.

When creating a social media policy, the temptation to implement an overly rigid policy must be weighed against the potential difficulties that enforcing such a policy can present. In addition, there is also the danger of creating a policy which will be ineffective if not kept up to date with current law and guidance.

Whether you are an employment law solicitor advising clients on how to create a social media policy or a HR practitioner who needs to implement a policy within your own law firm, this bite-size course will provide you with the information that you require in order to do this successfully.
