Social Media in the Workplace

The social media phenomenon has revolutionized both personal and business communications. We now broadcast our thoughts, opinions, pictures and videos instantly through a vast array of social media sites to promote products and services, network, reconnect with old friends and much more. Inappropriate social media use can lead to problems relating to confidential information, defamation and harassment, among many others. However, companies must use social media effectively to remain competitive. Social media training is crucial for firms to build a culture of compliance, and to potentially avoid significant financial and reputational damage.
