One of the top questions for those that manage training and development for an organization is whether or not a Learning Management Solution is still the best way to manage that training. Technology and trends are emerging so quickly these days, you may be left wondering if there is a better way? Am I missing the “band wagon” on how to handle this? What tools should I be using? Am I serving our employees the best way I can? Ultimately, is LMS dead?
Join HRsmart's VP of Product Management, Marilyn Hoare, to learn a brief overview of the evolution of LMS to date, an evaluation of the current state of the market and where things are heading in this field.
Employers, “We’re not in Kansas anymore”…With the emergence and rapid growth of social media, employers are being forced to balance nearly unlimited business possibilities with serious new risks and vulnerabilities. This seminar will review how far employers can go to legally restrict employees’ social media activities today and where the law will be headed in the near future. We will take a peek “behind the curtain” into issues such as employee privacy rights, employee protected social media activities, and the lawfulness of employers’ social media policies and rules. As employee use of personal technology in the workplace becomes as commonplace as posting on Facebook while at work, we will also discuss the “Bring Your Own Device” (or “BYOD”) movement. Although there may be many benefits to the BYOD trend, there is also a “tornado” of concerns for employers to consider which we will touch upon during this seminar.
While laws concerning social media are just beginning to emerge, most of the applicable legal landscape is speculative. As a result, most employers sure of their legal responsibilities or how the legal situation surrounding social networking interacts with other laws. More importantly, most employers do not know what their employees are doing in the social media sphere until it becomes a problem. This situation of uncertainty has resulted in countless lawsuits ranging from wrongful termination to discrimination and beyond.
The purpose of this presentation is to identify key issues and pose strategic questions to help guide managers to make more informed decisions when navigating social media issues within their organizations. Thereby helping employers to understand and mitigate the legal risk associated with social media in the workplace. We also will discuss important legislation, administrative enforcement actions, and cases impacting and shaping the legal landscape of social media in the work place. Additionally, we will specific considerations in developing a social media policy.
Let's face it. We are all online and using some kind of digital media and our organization and people are not in isolation of it. In fact, in a study conducted by Deloitte, more than 90 percent of Fortune 500 companies either partially or fully implemented an enterprise social network by the end of 2013. Even the way we hire and manage our Human Resources has changed. The rapid ascent of digital and social media are propelling businesses forward like never before.
Do you have the right knowledge and process in place to take part in this and make it the most effective channel for your organization, management, and employees?
