This event is now complete

Social Media Skills for HR ProfessionalsSocial media or web 2.0 technologies have already had a profound effect on many peoples’ lives and are starting to make more impact within our organisations too. However, this impact is not just down to new technology.

Technology has changed the way that people think (or possibly changing thinking has led to the development of new technology!) The new attitudes and behaviours arising from this in turn lead to further change.

HR needs to understand these developments and intervene when they involve people at least as much as they do technology.

However, HR also needs to understand the changes which are starting to happen within the HR function too. HR teams are also starting to use social technologies and more social or community based approaches to achieve HR objectives too.

  • HR practitioner, with an interest to improve your social media skills
  • HR team member
  • Recruitment specialist

Six key things you will learn at this course:

Understand the impact that social media, and changing workforce expectations, are having on businesses, management and HR
Be able to describe how HR processes are impacted by these changes
Recognise the opportunities available from the use of the main social media tools
