#9219  Social media is everywhere – including our workplaces. While it can serve useful business purposes, it can also open the door to hackers, circulate rumors and abusive comments, create public relations nightmares, and be a real drag on productivity. Technology cannot be avoided, but it needs to be used wisely and appropriately.
In fact, many employees spend up to two hours every workday on non-business related websites – often not realizing how their multiple side-trips can consume their time and lead to other problems, as well. And its not just during the workday. After-hours posts can also have an impact if they violate policies or cause friction between co-workers.
So how do you avoid the dangers of potential harassment claims, exposure to computer viruses and malware, and release of confidential data? And how do you convince employees that spending too much company time on social media is just not OK?
This video will help. Dramatic scenes filmed on location in a variety of industries show:
  • A receptionist’s computer is hacked after she opens a suspicious email attachment.
  • A waiter posts a photo from behind-the-scenes that could harm a restaurants reputation.
  • An office worker snipes at a co-worker through social media, making everyone take sides.
  • Text messages are used to pursue unwelcome romantic interest in a colleague.
  • Trade secrets are released before a new product launch and quickly captured by a competitor.
  • Social networking and online video games create more work – and resentment – for co-workers.
Viewing time: 14 minutes. Closed-Captioned. In English and available in other languages; please call us at 703-361-7300 to order the video in a different language. 2015.
