"Your Employee Said What on Facebook?"

Social Media: Minimizing or Capitalizing on Employee Online Indiscretion

In today’s digital world, disgruntled employees sometimes express their opinions online ? a trend that will increase as younger, more digitally connected employees join the workforce.  Employment law often lags behind behavioral trends and handling each situation can be a delicate matter. 

While many online comments may pass by unnoticed, those that gain traction and “go viral” can have long lasting consequences for any size business.  By taking proactive steps quickly to neutralize negative effects, it is possible to achieve a long-lasting, positive business outcome and can even create new opportunities to enhance your business reputation. 

This ninety minute, hands-on workshop takes participants through a simulated online crisis allowing them to experience an online employee “incident” and teaches them how to navigate to a successful conclusion.   

Attendees will leave this workshop with a solid understanding of the current online behavioral trends and the practical steps you can take to manage employee online comments.
