Social Media for HR: Training, Recruiting, Policy and Beyond

Social Media for HR: Training, Recruiting, Policy and Beyond
October 4, 2012 at 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET
Social media has rapidly become one of the hottest terms in the HR community, yet many professionals still struggle to understand exactly how social media is impacting their profession. This presentation will provide an overview of how social media and digital technologies are impacting Human Resource professionals.

Social media is transforming learning and development as more people have access to more information and expertise than ever before. The old model of training was based on education being injected based on specific needs. With social media, training can take place any time, anywhere, making it more accessible and flexible. In addition, social media can support learning communities that learn from each other and build knowledge over time.

Social media is also changing recruiting, as we are now able to see connections and access data online. With the advent of social media, recruiters are now able to promote open positions to the right candidates at the right time at the right place. In a hyper-connected world we now have access to more people, which provides more relevant opportunities for recruiters to connect with candidates. In addition, the wealth of information online means recruiters can gain more information about potential candidates.

With the advent of social media, every organization must have a social media policy. As employees are active on social media, and talking about their work and their workplace it is vital for human resource professionals to understand the risks that this creates. A social media policy is a must for any organization to provide education to employees on the risks and dangers of sharing workplace information online.

In addition to these popular topics, this presentation will also touch on how social media is impacting communications and collaboration, and how organizations can increase their effectiveness by harnessing the power of social media. This session will give the HR professional a broad overview as to how social media is impacting their profession, and what they can do about it.
