Today’s staff consider the Internet to be a basic right and expect to use social media tools like Facebook and Twitter while they work.

Managing Connected Workers examines the motives for these workers and shows how managers and business owners can harness the power of these workers’ networks while minimizing risks to the organisation.

This workshop is designed for all managers concerned about staff use of social media tools inside and outside the workplace.
