The impact of social media and external relations is never far away from the news but how is it affecting internal communications and human resources? From the banal question of “Should I friend my boss on Facebook?” to bigger issues, such as the line between personal and professional communications and how to write a staff social media policy?

Both employers and employees need to be aware that the bar has moved.

The aim of this course is to help organisations understand this new landscape, the new challenges it brings and examine ways of understanding internal culture so that appropriate tactics and strategies can be implemented.
