Creating a safe and healthy environment for your club members wellbeing
Social media is everywhere and part of our daily lives.
As a sports club, professional or amateur, it’s more important than ever to ensure you have the right policies, training, and plans in place to manage risks associated with social media use, understand your club's potential exposure, ensure brand safety and most importantly player and member safety online.
There are many potential risks when it comes to social media, personal, professional, psychological, and organizational, and your club needs to be aware of them and how they impact your duty of care as a sports club.
Reputation Is Everything
Maintaining a positive reputation is critical for any sports club.
Safe on Social provides a wholistic online and face-to-face training for your organization to help understand and manage your members and the way they are using social media to protect your reputation. Together we help train and educate your management team, office bearers, committees, volunteers, and members to understand social media best practices, law changes, new apps, and how this learning can positively impact their families and the wider community.
Member wellness sits at the heart of your club. It is not a once-off conversation. Online trust and safety is year-round.
Social media has become an essential method of communicating. While it's convenient, it's not without problems for both your club - and your member community.
Online hate and abuse, Cyber Bullying, Online harassment, Trolling, Sextortion, and constant emerging risks and cyber threats can severely impact the mental health of staff/committees and members. Inappropriate posts by team members can potentially cause irreparable damage to your club, large or small. Cybersecurity, ransomware attacks, and scams can cause major issues. Psychological injury is increasing, and social media use is a significant influence. The lines between professional and personal use are now so blurred that they cannot be separated.
