HR & Social Media - One More Thing For HR Departments to Monitor

As if Human Resources Department's don't have enough to do!

Social media use by staff has hit the news again.

A warning for organisations that staff need to be reminded of policy or guidelines around technology usage relating to the organisation or risk termination.

A US employee was recently terminated for posting a photograph on his paycheck - along with some comments - on social media site Instagram. [More Here on Smart Company Website]

In May 2012 a Chief Financial Officer in the US lost his job as a result of Facebook and Twitter postings. [More here in Wall Street Journal]

Perhaps it's time to remind staff of the expectations associated with social media and their roles in your organisation.

How does your organisation "remind" staff of expectations around social media usage or does it do nothing?
