Drafting Social Media Policies

Learn Social Media Policy for Business, Corporate Social Media Policy Examples. Includes a Social Media Policy Template.

Created by Eric Schwartzman - Digital Marketing Consultant


Students: 9860, Price: Free

Social media policies are critical to any strategic social media marketing business plan. Without a firm grasp of what's permissible by law as well as what's needed to drive adoption internally, you could wind up with a policy that is ruled unlawful by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Why does that matter?

According to a recent research on 400 companies by Cap Gemini and MIT, digitally mature businesses across all categories generate more revenue, are more profitable and command higher market valuation than businesses that refrain from embracing new media.

Social marketing was where we started. Social business is where we're headed.  You can't socialize the organization without rules.  Social media policy development is a critical component of socializing the enterprise. Learn how to draft social media polices for managers and clients.

This course will save you time and money by accelerating the development time you need to draft and gain approval for a social media policy. It will also minimize the risk of instituting an unlawful social media policy, like many major organizations have done already. Save your organization the time and expensive of having to learn your lesson in court.

You'll also get my world renown social media policy template , to get you off and running quickly with everything you need to be aware of to draft an effective social media policy.  Plus, you'll learn the rationale behind the language, so you can explain to your legal counsel, manager or client.

In this course, you get the benefit of my real world experience developing social media policies for major organizations including Edison International, the United States Marine Corps and many others.

Social media has become an integral part of our personal lives. Unless you take the time to specify how (not if) employees can use social media at work, you risk forfeiting the chance of alienating the best and the brightest candidates.  If you're a US-based organization, you might unknowingly violate the National Labor Relations Act.

But regardless of where you're based, draconian social media policies have the potential to severely tarnish your organization's reputation. Don't follow the International Olympic Committee's example.  Get it right the first time.

Created by Acumen Academy Courses - Global Learning Community for Social Change-Makers


Students: 7382, Price: Free

In today’s competitive knowledge economy, a company’s ability to attract, retain and develop talented people is critical.  Yet, in most organizations, we end up basing personnel decisions on emotions, instincts or politics rather than data. Important decisions about talent end up becoming black-box calculations rather than data-driven choices.

Enter People Analytics. This emerging field uses data to advance how organizations make decisions about human resources and enables leaders to operate on evidence rather than intuition.

Prasad Setty leads the People Analytics team at Google and is a pioneer in this field. In this course, he’ll offer you a behind-the-scenes look at how Google conducts groundbreaking research to distill the characteristics of the most effective teams and managers. He’ll walk you through how his team uses data to inform Google’s decisions about promotions, compensation, and team structure and help you get started incorporating data into your own human resource decisions—even if you’re a social entrepreneur starting at a much smaller and scrappier scale.

By the end of this course, you’ll have worked towards establishing a data-powered, performance-driven culture for your own enterprise and gained practical tips for building people analytics processes. This course is for anyone who wants to develop a smarter social enterprise where key personnel decisions are data-informed and human-approved.

This course is built for both hiring team members and hiring managers who need an efficient yet effective primer on the interview process and tactical tips for conducting interviews and evaluating candidates.

In my 20 years of recruiting, I've conducted thousands of interviews, worked with hundreds of candidates, and helped dozens of teams find the right people for the job.

Having a game plan for your interviews will prepare you to serve this role, and this course will provide you with the knowledge you need to help your team find that perfect fit.

Throughout this course, you'll apply the skills you'll need to successfully interview. You'll practice reading resumes to glean the information you'll need to prepare for your interview.

The Recruiting Process Steps: From Job Posting to Job Offer

Understand the "why" behind each step of the process & increase your success in finding the RIGHT person for your team.

Created by Alex Wagner - PHR


Students: 4225, Price: Free

The recruiting process has been broken down into 7 bite-sized pieces so that you can understand the purpose behind each step, know what red flags to look for, and use take-away tools to implement the process successfully in your business.

This course was created to increase your confidence and improve your ability to recruit and hire successfully - finding the RIGHT person to fit your team.

Step 1: Creating the Job Ad and Posting Online *Template included*

  • Get into the mindset of the candidate to know what he or she will be looking for immediately when reviewing your ad.

  • Tip: Applicants are more likely to click out of a job ad if no pay is listed.

Step 2: Sifting Through Applicant Resumes

  • Become quicker at reviewing resumes, knowing which candidates should be declined and which candidates would be worth your time.

  • Tip: Identify gaps in employment and make note to ask about those in the pre-screen phone call.

Step 3: Making the Pre-Screen Phone Call *Recommended questions included*

  • Learn what questions are most important to ask in your first 15-minute conversation with the candidate to determine if he or she is worth an hour more of your time.

  • Tip: Ask if the candidate lives within a “commutable distance” to your company as many candidates don’t look closely when applying.

Step 4: Preparing and Completing In-Person Interview #1 *Recommended questions included*

  • Breakdown this step even further into Preparation, Interview, and Review.

  • Tip: End this step by asking the front desk how the candidate acted upon arrival. This will provide insight about how the candidate acts when he or she is not trying to impress you.

Step 5: Reference Checking *Recommended questions included*

  • Understand why this step is vital to the process and will be used to verify resume accuracy.

  • Tip: Instead of asking "What is the candidate’s biggest weakness?” (references often avoid this question), ask “What is an area of improvement?” to re-frame the question and keep things positive.

Step 6: Preparing and Completing In-Person interview #2

  • Get creative with the final interview and start looking towards the finish line.

  • Tip: Make this a working interview, dinner meeting, or include an aspect of demonstration in the interview to get a new perspective on the candidate’s personality and knowledge level.

Step 7: Extending the Job Offer or Sending the Decline Email *Decline email template included*

  • There are two options to end the process with a clear outline of how to proceed either way.

  • Tip: Don’t allow candidates to extend their offer deadlines by more than a week as they are likely waiting on another offer.

Over the past 5 years, I have worked with dozens of business owners and hiring managers who lack training in the recruiting process. I noticed a major gap in both understanding and implementation so I decided to create a course that would provide a guide to the process - making it easier for the hiring manager and helping him or her go into each step with the right mindset. Recruiting is not just about asking a certain number of questions and finding someone with a personality that you like. Each step has a very specific purpose and knowing WHY you are completing these steps will make the difference between a successful hire and a short-lived fit.

The impact of a poor hire is costly! It affects your company culture and the monetary cost of turnover is thousands and thousands of dollars. If you are inexperienced, untrained, or not confident in the process, I highly recommend completing this course. You’ll have access to take-away tools and be able to come back and review this information as needed!

I’ll see you inside the course.

Migrants and locals are two sides of a coin—a journey of collaborative adaptation

Created by Goutam Basak - Entrepreneur


Students: 3340, Price: Free

Who do we call migrants? It may be you or me, moving from one place to
another to improve our lives. It can be inter country, intra country or even
rural to urban. Statistically, the maximum number of human migrations across
the world happened in the last decade—and it is increasing every day.

Migrants and locals are two sides
of a coin—a journey of collaborative adaptation necessary from both ends. We
all struggle during this process from fear
of uncertainty, culture shock, change in perception, value system and style of
communication. As human beings are the heart and soul of any business,
understanding different perspectives and behaviour are crucial in reaping the
optimum outcome. Migration—wherever it happens, it always brings socio economic growth
and in today’s hyper connected mobile world is truly a relevant topic.

like a migrant
– use your practice of adaption to strive for success

Act like
a local
– collaborate, socialise and adapt to the ways of your new homeland

Performance Management System

Learn various strategies

Created by Akaaro Consulting and Training - HR, Legal & Financial Management Consulting firm


Students: 1105, Price: Free

Like many management terms, the word “performance management” has been interpreted, and the concept implemented, in many different ways. But the major goal in any good performance management system is to ensure that employees’ activities – what they do and how well they do them – are in sync with the goals of the organization, while maintaining a motivated and happy workforce.

Hence we can say that Per­for­mance man­age­ment is the con­tin­u­ous process of improv­ing per­for­mance by set­ting indi­vid­ual and team goals which are aligned to the strate­gic goals of the organ­i­sa­tion, plan­ning how to achieve the goals, review­ing and assess­ing progress, and devel­op­ing the required competencies of peo­ple.

So, there are 4 major steps in the performance management system. These are- plan, act, track, and evaluate

The course also includes 3 key strategies needed as a leader in providing proper feedback.

Human Resources

How Human Resources now play a major role in business management

Created by Shane Irvine - Learn to Think Like a Lawyer


Students: 385, Price: Free

The world was dealt a serious blow with the Covid-19 pandemic. During the 2020 time of writing Entrepreneurs, Et al, and recovery was just getting started. Different regions were affected differently and the level of resources to promote entrepreneurship also varies by region. Jobs and financial resources became alarmingly scarce.

Working from home, being self-employment and undertaking entrepreneurial endeavors quickly became the new business norm as many people had no choice except to go to work for themselves.
With major corporations and government entities outsourcing much of their work to avoid workplace exposure to the coronavirus. Initially, only essential workers were retained while many people, were left unemployed, laid off, or had their jobs suspended. The lucky ones were able to work from home.
As a result, entrepreneurialism became the new standard for business in the United States and around the world. Many entrepreneurs had studied business science in undergraduate or graduate coursework, and were able to adapt. However, many found themselves unprepared to start or manage their own business, and going back to school was just not an option. This series of courses is designed for those who want to improve their business skills but lack the resources to go back to school.
There are certain disciplines in business that every entrepreneur needs to be familiar with, but it is not necessary to learn them in a traditional academic setting. Business disciplines are typically taught in classrooms with a live instructor and typically include basic business scholastic selections such as entrepreneurship, management strategies, insurance, finance, sales, marketing, human resources, and accounting principles. However, the information provided in these disciplines is generic. No one university has a monopoly on standard business knowledge. As a matter of fact, most of the business curriculum has become standardized so that transferring students have equivalent knowledge about the standard curriculum.
Because this information is considered standard knowledge, it can be taught through either traditional classroom study or self-study. Not every student has the self-discipline to achieve a high level of understanding of a subject matter. Not every university student has the ability to even pass their classes. Education is very individual. People learn at different levels. Some people are capable of learning with minimal assistance by just listening, reading along, and doing independent studying on areas they don’t initially grasp.
Quite often a discipline requires understanding fundamental principles. If those principles are not understood from the beginning, the whole study thereafter may be flawed by a lack of understanding of core principles. All too often, the speed of the class does not allow students to go back and relearn what they missed. Some students excel while others are left behind. The courses often flow at the speed of the top learners. This deprives other students of an opportunity to matriculate and achieve scholastic successes.
Not everyone needs a traditional classroom setting to learn in and some are just not cut out for university education. However, many people are capable of learning independently at their own pace.
If one plans to start their own business, they don’t necessarily need an actual diploma, they need the knowledge. The curriculum contained herein is designed to give a broad knowledge of the functional areas of how businesses are structured, practical managerial skills, communication skills, and business decision-making capability.
When it comes to business, there is no one right way to do anything. There are as many different approaches as there are different opportunities. The goal of every business student is to synthesize the information and extrapolate from that information that is necessary to achieve their end business goal.

Tips and Tricks for Recruitment

How to build and refine your recruitment skills

When dealing with a normal candidate, the recruiter’s goal is to build rapport to determine a genuine behavior. When dealing with a difficult one, the goal is to manage risks of losing the candidate. On top of this, the shortage of the candidate’s pipeline is a market reality. What to do for having an effective recruitment process, when you do not afford errors?

Frequently, a bad hire is the output of a fiasco to precisely identify the competencies required for a position. Time, effort, energy and money is lost! Hence it becomes crucial that every interview must be well planned to elicit the competencies required for the said job or position.

The current pandemic context requires new strategies. Recruiters are doing more head-hunting and need complex abilities. The power of active listening and sending a message with a high impact must be reinforced with new competencies. Considering the challenges of a world affected by crises, lockdowns, loneliness of the workforce, the same issues can also be found in different companies.

Competencies play a key role in supporting good or superior performance on the job. In order to select the right candidate it is essential to assess the competencies that the individual possesses. “The key to finding out how someone will perform in a job is to collect and analyze examples of how he/she has performed in similar situations in the past” These can further be matched to the expected levels for a specified job role, thus helping the Interviewer to make an objective selection decision.
