With the use of social media on the increase and the vast number of communication channels and methods available, employers must carefully consider how they manage this within their organisations.
Our advice is to ensure that a policy exists in the first place and that the business has taken appropriate measures to ensure that it has been communicated to all employees.
The policy should specify the firm’s position on the use of such media, and have a key focus on what information their staff can communicate within their profiles in relation to information about the organisation and any clients that they represent. Consideration and clarity must also be provided about what is deemed acceptable and unacceptable for publishing in the public domain.
Check that your IT policy covers employees use of Facebook and Twitter and make sure you address it before you have a problem. Our ‘one size fits all’ wording and procedures can be easily integrated into your Contracts of Employment.
