Darryl Moore, Executrade(Executrade - Your Recruitment Specialists)
Social media is all abuzz in every industry. How we communicate, discuss, describe, evaluate and judge has all changed. There are many benefits to embracing social media in how we communicate, recruit, hire and retain, however, many dangers lurk in the often grey to black arena of social media – the very place where corporate and personal values collide. In recent articles we read an increasing number of examples. One article identifies a worker who was on disability leave and posted pictures of her zip lining in Mexico on Facebook and lost her job. While deception and fraud make for strong cases for dismissal, there is a mounting battle between people’s rights to express who they are during off-work hours and how they represent themselves and the company by what they share in online social communities. In North America 91% of hiring managers screen potential candidates, using a combination of LinkedIn (48%), Twitter (53%) and most commonly Facebook (76%) throughout the hiring process. For hiring managers and organizations social media and communities become very difficult moral/legal dilemmas that challenge organizational policy and relations. This event seeks to capture and understand some of the dangers of using social media in the hiring process of candidate evaluation and identify how to avoid the pitfalls and possible consequences that may exist of taking social media too far. Data will be presented to illustrate how social communities and media are used to evaluate candidates and examples provided to demonstrate how online sources can place the organization in dangerous waters. Finally the event will discuss remedies and considerations to reduce the dangers of candidate evaluation.
