Master Social Media for HR

Put the social back in social media − build stakeholder partnerships to effectively reach talent.

Onsite Workshop

HR not leveraging social media for branding and recruiting talent will:

  • Leave you behind the 82% of organizations leveraging social media for recruitment and 77% using social media to promote their employer brand.
  • Keep large pools of available talent untouched by and unaware of your organization.
  • Place HR inquiries with departments that manage social media channels rather than with HR professionals who have accurate employer brand and recruiting knowledge.
  • Reduce your ability to measure key audience engagement and talent acquisition analytics.

Creating an online presence for your organization will:

  • Allow you to influence your employer brand and reduce inaccurate perceptions.
  • Increase job opening visibility with low additional cost.
  • Allow you to engage passive candidates, using powerful and readily available tools.
  • Track actionable talent acquisition and employer brand analytics.
