ALTRES recently released their latest white paper, “Social Media and the Workplace: A Guide for Hawaii Employers". Social networking’s influence on business is growing daily, and ALTRES believes business owners need to be aware of the inherent risks of social media amidst the potential rewards.
“Social Media and the Workplace” was created to keep their clients informed, but they've made the white paper available to all local businesses at no cost. Anyone can download a copy at: simplicityHR.com/social
