In the last few years, social networking has evolved from a quirky way for friends to keep in touch with friends to the primary centers of communication in both private and personal life. New social networking sites have sprung up attracting millions of subscribers, and people are increasingly bringing their social networking activities to work. The question is: How are companies going to walk the fine line of separating the personal from work related activity when this medium has merged both? Does adding someone to your network constitute a business relationship? What do you do when you run across something online about one’s personal life that could impact their performance on the job? Do you talk to them? Do you really want to open up that issue? Are you obligated to do so? These and many more issues must be addressed by anyone responsible for making personnel policy at their firms.
Mitigating Risks of Social Networking Activity by Your Employees Live Webcast will provide corporate executives, benefits, human resource, legal, risk officers, and administrators with a comprehensive update on this topic. A key panel of thought leaders and experts will cover many of the most critical issues surrounding social networking, its explosive growth and its potential impact on your firm. Join this live webcast to learn how to most effectively manage.
