WIRTW #212 (the “something for nothing” edition)

One of the benefits of hitting the road to speak as much as I do is all of the great people I meet. One of those people is Jessica Miller-Merrell, who authors the fabulous HR blog, Blogging4Jobs. On February 21 I, along with Mike VanDervort (author of The Human Race Horses) will guest on a free webinar Jessica is presenting, Understanding Unions, NLRB, & Corporate Social Media:

This session provides a broad overview for senior business leaders (and not just HR) regarding the recent legislation surrounding social media, the NLRB, and strategies for how company leaders can maneuver and monitor employee activity on social networking sites. Learn best practices how to manage and discipline your employees, create policies, and awareness throughout your organization.  

I’ll be addressing the NLRB’s latest attempts to regulate employer restrictions on employees’ use of social media, in and out of the workplace. The webinar will run from 12:00 to 1:30 pm on February 21, and registration is free.
