Safe Use of Social Media for Employees

This e-learning course is aimed at businesses who want to give staff clear guidance about the safe use of social media online to protect both the company and employees. Available on all devices and taking about 30 minutes to complete, it can be tailored to individual businesses and include their own social media policies.

The interactive course explores how a single social media post can damage an organisation’s reputation and lead to disciplinary action, or even dismissal, for employees – even if it happens outside work.

Using real-world examples and straight-talking advice, the course will help employees keep themselves, and their employer, out of trouble.
