The Business Network South Herts – Social Media in the Workplace

30th October 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


Join us for some excellent networking opportunities combined with an educational seminar.

What happens at a Business Network South Herts event?
You will meet 60/70 senior contacts from a diverse mix of South Herts based business and professional services companies and enjoy the mix of formal and informal networking at our carefully planned event. Before the seminar and before lunch enjoy a drink while you network. During the course of lunch we take it in turns to go round our table and talk briefly about our business and the kind of opportunities we are looking for.

What’s the seminar about?
The seminar is given by a different member each month. This month’s seminar is “Social Media in the Workplace” presented by Jane Johnson of JLJ Legal and Susie Kaye of Your HR Partner.

This is what they say about it:

Social media has been around for 15 years but there is still no legislation dictating what activities are lawful. It is something that would be welcomed both in terms of employment law and general problems with trolling. For now, solicitors and HR consultants are having to rely on the evolving number of cases in the Employment Tribunal to advise our clients.

This presentation will take you through some of the many social media “fails” on the part of employees with some amusing examples of real-life cases. We will help you understand why cases were decided in a certain way and give you practical advice on how to avoid employees damaging your business’ reputation via their own social media accounts.

What are the timings?
We register for the seminar at 10.00am and the seminar starts at 10.30am but don’t worry if you can’t get there for 10.00am as the seminar is an optional part of the event.
I always recommend that visitors come to the seminar if they can as there’s extra networking time beforehand. You’ll also be amazed at what you can learn from the seminar presenters. You’ll always pick up a new tip or two.
However, if you can’t spare the time, we register for lunch from 11.45am and have open networking until we sit down to lunch at 12.30.
To help you plan the rest of your day we finish promptly at 2.00pm

What feedback do you get?
The feedback after each event is always positive and enthusiastic with people commenting in particular on the calibre of our members and guests and the format of the events which allows for a mix of formal and informal networking. People also enjoy the business-focussed yet unpressurised atmosphere.
