Program Summary

Social Media is constantly being touted as the “next big thing” in HR for professional development, recruiting talent and engaging with employees/potential employees - and even customers. So why is it that HR is often lagging in getting on board with social media and learning how to maximize it for professional growth and to meet key organizational objectives? Concerns often include potential violations of employment laws, security breaches and lost productivity. Also, with so many tools out there, it’s difficult to determine which ones to get involved with and whether or not they are appropriate for your organization.

In this session, we’ll address how successful HR pros just like you are using social media to develop professionally and grow their careers – without breaking any rules. We’ll also review examples of how companies and organizations of all sizes and industries are using social media to positively impact the critical talent strategies within their organizations.


Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how to use social media for professional & career development, as well as how to effectively use various tools for attracting, recruiting & engaging employees.
  • Opportunities for career and professional development through involvement in social media.
  • Understanding how to choose the right tools or platforms to meet objectives.
  • Developing social media guidelines to match your company’s culture & encourage effective use.


  • Examples of how HR professionals are successfully using social media to develop their careers, facilitate communication within their organizations and attract/recruit talent.
  • Examples of how companies – both large and small – are using social media to execute their talent strategies.
  • Examples of Social Media Policies Guidelines that can be useful in creating one specific for your organization.
