I recently had the privilege of speaking to the Grande Prairie Chapter of the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources Alberta about social media and creating healthy, social company cultures.
Each day we hear stories about employees being fired for posts they’ve made online, but there are also just as many great stories that come from empowered employees using social media for good. We know our employees are online and we know while they’re online on social media, they can either be our greatest advocates or they can be a liability.
A healthy social company culture is one where you set everyone up for success because you operate with transparency, trust and approachability. Through employee education and training, you will see positive changes within your organization. Increased collaboration, valuable insights, information sharing but chief among them will be pride in the organization. (ultimately impacting your bottom line!) Although this session was focused on first steps of getting employees up-to-speed online so they understand their rights, company expectations, policies and how they can help contribute to the success of the organization – it’s important to understand how social media can fit within overall operations.
In this session I was pleased to share how to create social media guidelines for your organization and how to roll them out via social media training to employees.
Thank you to CPHR Alberta members for coming out to the event.
