This recorded event is available until May 1, 2013.
Ensure you are in compliance when it comes to social media. Along with the challenging and evolving HR demands credit unions face -including supervising Gen Xers and handling sub-prime employees, is dealing with the still relatively new reality of social media. According to a 2011 industry survey, 42% of companies polled claimed to have disciplined an employee for misusing social media sites.
On social media sites, employees can post sensitive information or trade secrets (i.e., posting to Facebook about a new project they're working on), send inappropriate messages of a romantic or sexual nature to co-workers, creating potential sexual harassment liability or publicly disparage the credit union and its products or services, damaging its reputation and good name.
Further, more and more employers are reviewing Facebook and other media profiles of job candidates. More than 85% of employers responding to another recent survey indicate that they are less likely to hire candidates whose social networking profile or tweets evidence unprofessional behavior.
But the social media milieu is full of traps for the unwary-and what employers can and cannot do about many of the issues that arise is often counterintuitive.
