alt‘Big brother is watching’ is part of everyday life, whether you like it or not, with social media everywhere. The line between what is work or private seems to be getting more and more unclear. When an employee posts something on Facebook or Twitter that is negative about your organization or your management it is there for a wide audience to see. Looking at the internal cases at the Police Force in the UK in the last 5 years more than 500 policemen and woman within the UK haven been reported about their messages on social media and 90 of these cases resulted in internal disciplinary hearings at the Police Force held last year. Let’s face it we all know employees might not always like you or their job and will have days that they might complain about it to family or friends, however, when these emotions are then transposed into social media messages that can mean big trouble. Not to mention the enthusiastic employee who posts a picture at an event when to all intents and purposes that same person has reported in sick for work, social media can work both ways.
We understand that having the task of managing disciplinary hearings may be challenging when it is not an everyday occurrence. Research from recent clients has lead to the development of a comprehensive training workshop to allay these fears whilst providing the tools and techniques necessary to successfully conduct these types of meetings.For the moment keep the 25th of March free in your diary and email us your interest by contacting This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
