Listen to my radio interview with local charity radio Soundart Radio below.

Produced by Dave Clarke.


Helena White from the HR Dept Torbay and Ivybridge spoke at a recent Vu Online event about the importance of companies having a social media policy and whether you can sack employees for out-of-work social media misbehaviour. A social media policy should be considered a must-have in today’s HR armoury. It will describe in detail what employees can and cannot do. And it will give you the framework to deal with any wrongdoing.
