Training Session for Employers on Social Media in the Workplace
DUBUQUE - Employers Council of Northeast Iowa (ECI), in partnership with IowaWORKS, Dubuque Area Labor Management Council (DALMC) and Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC) Town Clock Center for Professional Development, is offering “Social Media in the Workplace: Legal, Ethical and Practical Issues”. The featured speaker will be Stephen Krumpe, an attorney with O’Connor & Thomas, P.C. He has been in practice for 27 years and works with Tri-State area employers on a variety of employment issues.
A good social media policy starts with a sound understanding of the risks to be addressed, but it doesn’t end there. Stephen will present a quick overview of a sounds business policy regarding social media use: how to develop one, what it should include, and what common mistakes should be avoided. He will also discuss the culture clash between business use of social media with the customs and practices of personal social media use, which younger employees bring with them to the workplace.
