Social Media: An Employer's Guide

With social networking on the increase what does this mean in the world of HR?

This event from the Chamber’s HR and Recruitment Sector will highlight the benefits and pitfalls of employees using social media sites and the consequences from a HR perspective. It will also offer guidance as to what your company could include in the creation of a Social Media Policy, plus tips on how to use social media to enhance the recruitment process.

Our main presenter, Richard Hughes of Click HR, will explore the dangers of social media for employers and help with providing guidance to those responsible for protecting the company.  Social media has created new challenges for companies and this presentation will focus on three main areas:

Current areas of risk

The impact on company culture

Framework for creating a new company policy

This lunchtime seminar, designed for HR professionals and business managers, will encourage discussions on issues within their own company and help to provide a guide to what should be included within Social Media Policies.

Our second presenter, Claire McGrory of Rose McGrory, will demonstrate how the use of sites such as LinkedIn and Twitter can enhance the recruitment process.

Eight five per cent of delegates at the last HR Sector event rated the event as excellent value for money and satisfaction. We know that social media is the latest hot topic and meeting our member’s demands is a top priority.
