Auto/Mate's Dave Druzynski to Present "Social Media In Hiring And Employment" At Innovative Dealer Summit

ALBANY, N.Y. – March 16th, 2015 – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems (http://www.automate.com) today announced that Dave Druzynski, Director of Human Resources at Auto/Mate, will present "Social Media in Hiring and Employment" at the upcoming Innovative Dealer Summit in Denver, CO on April 7th and 8th, 2015. In his presentation Druzynski will share the current laws and practices that impact a dealership's use of social media in the hiring process. Attendees will learn about legal battles involving dealerships because of improper use of social media, along with how to craft a social media policy that will keep a dealership out of legal trouble.

 

"If a manager at your dealership has ever Googled a job candidate or looked at their Facebook or Twitter page, they may have accessed information that is protected by law," said Druzynski. "Some dealerships are finding themselves on the losing end of lawsuits because of the way they have used social media. However there are ways to take advantage of social media and I will share how to do that without infringing on current laws."

 

Attendees of Druzynski's breakout session will learn the following:

  • The current laws that impact your dealership's use of social media as it relates to job applicants and the hiring process
  • The laws as they relate to your current employees. Recent court cases have determined that practices such as disciplining employees for posting disparaging remarks on their social media profiles are illegal
  • How courts are currently interpreting these laws and how they affect dealers' decision making
  • How to craft a social media policy that will allow a dealership to take advantage of the tools available to them while remaining out of legal trouble

 

Druzynski has earned the prestigious distinction as a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) and is a member of the senior management team at Auto/Mate Dealership Systems. He provides strategic human resources planning in the areas of talent management, employee engagement, leadership development, benefits and compensation and legal and regulatory compliance.
