More and more, disgruntled employees have been taking to TikTok, Twitter, and other social media sites to share videos and posts of their bad work experiences. These stories are more likely than ever to go viral, which can lead to lost business, reputational damage, employee churn, and lawsuits, just to name a few unwelcome consequences for employers.
While some people might be acting in bad faith, employees have been finding tried traditional HR channels less than satisfactory. They feel un-heard and undervalued, and they turn to the internet to tell their stories, and receive fast responses.
You can’t build a brand or accomplish your mission statement without your employees. To avoid the repercussions of viral incidents and strengthen your brand, you have to repair your employer/employee relationship and work culture—or better yet, create a healthy, ethical culture from the start.
Join employment lawyer Janette Levey on March 2 at 2PM EST as she breaks down major viral incidents including Better.com, Starbucks, and Amazon, their consequences, and what to do to avoid them.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Real-life examples of companies that have been called out by employees online
- The repercussions public employee complaints can have on your company
- Steps to building a better relationship and preventing major employee incidents through transparency, flexibility, and other ethical behaviors
Bonus: Attendees can contribute their own examples for an open discussion in the second half of the webinar.
