Successfully employ social media while managing the legal risks
Social Media for HR Professionals
Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn have had a major impact on the way people interact and communicate. And as an HR professional, it’s up to you to understand and set rules for these social-media technologies in the workplace.
Unfortunately, the impact is not always positive. Improper use of social media at work can damage morale … hurt productivity … and even expose your company to a lawsuit. And that’s all the more reason you need to be aware of both the opportunities and the pitfalls of social media.
That’s why The HR Specialist has teamed a leading HR social-media expert with a top employment attorney to give you the full picture on how this communications revolution affects your workplace—and your work.
