Recruitment and Employment Seminar

Tuesday, February 23, 2016

Phil Kerridge, Director at Rogers & Norton, was recently invited to take part in a lunch time seminar organised by HR GO Recruitment at the St Giles House Hotel, where he spoke to around 40 invited guests.

Phil talked about the perils and pitfalls of social media in the work place and highlighted it’s increase in popularity during the last 10 years. He also discussed the impact that it has had on companies and how it has altered the dynamics of the employee/employer relationship. He has personally seen a rise in issues caused by employees using social media and stressed that it is important that employers have a specific social media policy and that it is published and understood by the workforce.

“It is such a permanent and spontaneous form of communication, it is vital the employers ensure that their staff understands the full implications of actions they take”.
