Example of Corporate Social Media Training

April 13, 2011

Here is a good example of a well-thought out planning training program for companies adopting social media.  Here is what I like about it:

  • Addresses the range of audiences involved – not just one type of employee and also looking at vendors and the like.
  • Identifies what the role various stakeholders have in the process
  • How to approach training for these audiences
  • That ongoing training will be required

The article goes on to recommend social media training to employees as a good way for them to understand the power and the danger these new tools pose.  I’ve been advocating training as a part of any social networking compliance effort so I’m glad to see the literature catching on to the importance of this.
