For the past two years, SHRM has invited several HR social media aficionados to serve on a special annual conference team that educates attendees on the importance of social media, and answers questions ranging from “What’s Twitter?” to “How do I use social media to create and promote our employer brand?” We call it “The Hive” and offer it to all attendees as an additional opportunity to learn about how HR is using social media to be more efficient and effective in their organizations.
The Hive provides a relaxed and friendly environment where HR pros can network and exchange ideas with the experts -- and with each other.
It’s so popular with conference attendees that we decided to continue the discussion this week on #Nextchat.
How are you using social media for communication, talent management, employer branding and employee engagement? What works? What doesn’t? If you’re not using social media, what’s holding you back?
Please join @WeKnowNext at 3 p.m. ET on June 26 for #Nextchat with special guest Maren Hogan (@MarenHogan), marketing executive and owner of Red Branch Media, and member of the SHRM Annual Conference blogger and Hive teams.
