Like it or not, many of your employees likely are accessing Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social media sites on and off the clock. Telling them not to may be impractical. But improperly managing the associated risks can put your business in jeopardy.
In this 90-minute interactive webinar you’ll learn about the risks and benefits of allowing employees access to social media sites, practical solutions concerning regulation of social media access in the workplace and what you need to do to update your policies. And, you’ll have the opportunity to have your social media questions answered during the live Q&A portion of the webinar.
