Like other cities and towns no doubt, staff in organisations across Leeds are getting to grips with new ways of working, including networking and amongst other things; use of social media. To some, this can be a daunting task, to others; something they relish. But, there’s a fine line in getting the balance of raising awareness of the opportunities and benefits social media use can bring and in reducing opportunities for mishap by providing good guidance and support for those using them.
And how do you make it work when staff from different organisations work together and where guidance and even policies might be different? Well that’s easy, you meet up and talk about it, discuss a way forward and then make it happen; turning on-line aquaintances into working life relationships.
Health and social care services in Leeds are doing just that. The latest story in our Talking Heads section, about a Tweet Meet, is by Angie Legge, Deputy Risk Manager, at Leeds Teaching Hospital NHS Trust.
