HR and Social Media, Unite!

Can HR and social media work together? Yes! Although some companies ban sites such as Twitter and Facebook, smart companies understand that social media happens whether they want it or not. They key is guidance and communication. Done the right way, social media is a great tool, allowing employees to become ambassadors for their companies, showcasing corporate culture and enhancing discussions. In addition, it can help employers find the perfect employee, or identify the no-so-perfect one.

Join us from 7:30 to 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2010 for the TechAmerica Orange County event, “Think Social Media isn’t vital to effective HR management? Think again!” hosted by EADS North America Test & Services. Our founder Cara Stewart will be a panelist alongside Lee-Anne Farley, Director of Talent Acquisition at TriNet.
