Presentation Description

A good social media policy starts with a sound understanding of the risks to be addressed, but it doesn't end there. George will start with a quick overview of sound corporate policy, and address the most common mistake businesses often make. He will then share "next generation" social media policy ideas, and the training and cultural issues that best create a foundation for effective corporate use of social media. No matter where you are on the social media learning curve, you will walk away with some new ideas.

Attendees of this program will:
• Learn the basics of sound corporate policy governing employee use of social media 
• What should a social media policy cover? 
• Discover who should drive social media policy development 
• Discuss recent NLRB case settlement 
• Recruiting & social media – pro’s & con’s 
• Explore the fundamental mistake many businesses make in trying to mitigate the risks associated with social media
