We hear from employers who are struggling with their employee’s use (and misuse) of social media platforms. This can be challenging for companies and those responsible for human resources and employee relations. When one employee harasses another using social media and every employee can see it, what can be done? When an employee does something that criticizes or embarrasses the company, how do you manage?
Sometimes even the strictest of policies don’t help stop an employee who makes the decision to use social media irresponsibly, but nevertheless it is critical that a social media policy be in place to deal with it and help teach all employees what is acceptable. If you don’t have a policy, we can help create one for your employee handbook, and assist with the unfortunate situations where the policy needs to be referenced.
