Why Social Media Matters in Human Resources

This is the 3rd of 4 interview vignettes that I shot for Jobing at the HR Florida State Conference and Exposition.  In this one, I share my views on why social media is more than a fad, and why human resources professionals need to understand social media and how it works.

I will be sharing more thoughts on this subject when I speak to the Suncoast Human Resource Management Association in St. Petersburg, Florida on July 14, 2010.  If you wish to attend, you can register here. T

Topics I will cover include:

  • A quick overview of the social web and tools like Facebook, twitter and blogs.
  • Why social media is a critical competency for HR.
  • How various groups, including your own employees may be using social media to damage your brand, and how to protect yourself.
  • How these tools can help you maintain positive employee relations.
