Pokémon Go in the Workplace: Strategies for Addressing Serious HR, Cyber Security, and Safety Concerns - On-Demand

Webinar is now available on-demand.

Death by Pokemon Go. Sounds extreme but it’s happened. The Washington Post reported the death of a 72-year-old Japanese woman who was struck and killed by a distracted driver playing Pokemon Go.

The Pokemon Go phenomenon has taken the United States—and yes, the world—by storm, and the fantasy game is presenting real-world problems for employers across the country. 

What will you do if one of your employees is in the course and scope of employment and injures him or herself or someone else because they’re distracted by a game that requires them to get to “PokéStops” to find and catch the elusive Pokémon characters? PokéStops can be found almost anywhere—monuments, restaurants—and yes, in your office, your warehouse, or other facility so there’s a clear and present danger that someone could be injured or killed if they’re playing the game where and when they shouldn’t be, which could include on your company watch.

In addition to safety, there are many other serious concerns employers need to address, including IT and employee productivity concerns. The widely popular app  has been downloaded over 50 million times, and downloads create concerns about access to the user’s private smartphone data. Therefore, in a company-owned business only (COBO) device or bring your own device to work situation there’s cause for concern.

If your employees are crazed about collecting Pokémon, you can’t afford to miss our on-demand webinar that will explore HR, safety, and cybersecurity concerns this interactive phenomenon raises for workplaces across the country.

This engaging presentation features Daniel C. Nelson, C|EH, John “J.P.” Hasman, and Lucas Amodio, C|EH, of Armstrong Teasdale, who will address the unique risks Pokémon Go and similar apps present and will provide practical strategies for protecting your employees and the integrity of your corporate data.

You’ll learn:

  • Why Pokémon Go could be the #1 employee distraction and productivity sapper this year—and practical strategies for keeping employees’ attention on work
  • The legal liabilities your company could face if an employee is injured while playing Pokémon Go—and strategies for making sure that doesn’t happen
  • Threats to the integrity of corporate data and what you should do right now to minimize those cyber security risks
