Governance

Current information in the marketplace reveals not all companies or their staff are correctly informed when it comes to using social media.

  • Only about one-third of employers currently provide training on appropriate use of social media.
  • Just over one-quarter of abuse was by former rather than current employees.
  • Only 17% of employers have termination provisions with express protections against misuse of social media following employees’ departure.
  • About one-third of businesses have had to take disciplinary action against an employee for misuse of social media.

Developing the right protocols is intrinsic in ensuring your business is protected from a communications point of view as well as a legal one. Various incidents have occurred over the last few years of inappropriate use of social media by staff and action in response by companies.

Setting the right policies can be daunting and our Governance packages can be tailored to those business just starting out with social policies, to those who are more established and requiring review of existing practice.
