One of the most significant developments in the workplace in the last decade has been the arrival of social networking. It is estimated that 85% of people in the UK have used the Internet, nearly half the population have a smartphone (ie one able to connect to the Internet) and a similar percentage use social media sites (Department of Health, The Power of Information, 2012). For many, social networking is already a part of normal life. And the next generation of employees and workers will never have known a world without the Internet and mobile phones.
A this event we will discuss the new challenges — and risks — to HR: how to manage the use of social networking and how to deal with its misuse, particularly where the reputation of the business is affected negatively.
