I’m looking forward to attending the Public Relations Association of Louisiana – Baton Rouge chapter lunch meeting today. I’ve been asked to participate as a member of a panel discussing the topic “Social Media in the Workplace” and am particularly interested in hearing stories/questions from the audience regarding their experiences with their HR and/or IT departments.
While the meeting topic will focus on legal considerations and information for the audience as to items to consider when determining a policy or guidelines for their workplace, I predict it will be a much more even-toned discussion than we sometimes see at HR conferences where the theme is often “scare, scare, scare!”
The PRAL-BR membership includes communication professionals from large corporate entities, government agencies and small entrepreneurial businesses – so this should lead us to an interesting discussion.
Breaking through the echo chamber!
