Implications of ICT for employment relations

This small-scale IES research project for Acas looked into the implications of social networking and mobile ICT technologies for employment relations, particularly in the context of developments in virtual working. It attempted to inform the development of Acas guidance for managers on handling employment relations issues arising from employee use of social networking tools. Most specifically, it looked at the extent of the use of social media in British workplaces, the challenges and opportunities that social media present for management of employment relations, and showcase good practice.
