Whether your business, or that of your work based learners workplace technologies are changing how businesses operate. Staff and learners need to understand their use, benefits and what governs their use.
In this workshop we explore the technologies commonly used in the workplace; how they benefit business, how they are used, the policies that govern their use and the impact of positive and negative actions on staff, learners and the employer.
Social media, collaborative communication tools and mobile devices are being used to increase productivity and connectivity in the workplace. Ever increasingly employers have a requirement for applicants to have an understanding of these tools and their uses. However, use of such tools results in a new level of transparency across a business. The number of employees losing their jobs over a lack of understanding of company policies and their online responsibilities when using this technology is increasing.
Training providers have a responsibility to raise the awareness of learners and their own staff of their personal safety online, their understanding of their online responsibilities to ensure sustained employment and also their responsibilities to their employer when working online.
- Identify common workplace technologies and terminology, and how they bring efficiencies to a business, including social media, online collaborative tools and mobile devices
- Learn how social media and productivity tools are used in the workplace to bring efficiencies, including mobile apps
- Identify inappropriate uses of workplace technology and legal precedence that impacts employment
- Raise awareness of employers’ policies that govern workplace technology usage and how contract of employment implied terms can impact technology usage.
This workshop will be valuable for anyone who supports and delivers learning to those entering the workplace or those already in the workplace.
It will also be of great interest to those who are looking to bring efficiencies to their own business through workplace technologies, and want an understanding of usage implications on staff and the business.
