WHY: Despite the rapidly growing use of social media, 40% of companies admit to having no training or governance of their employees’ use of social media. 43% of companies have HR responsible for creating an organization’s social media policy, even though Marketing and other departments would be the primary users. Per the US Department of Labor, almost half of the workforce is now made up of Millennials, yet, according to KPMG, 61% of Millennials don’t use traditional company resources. And a recent study by SilkRoad states 75% of leaders in human resources and talent management believe their companies are behind the curve regarding both internal and external social networking technology.
This illustrates a clear gap in communication needs and execution.
In this presentation, Britta Meyer will help HR professionals understand the importance of social media in the workplace. From creating a cohesive brand that resonates on a human level, to launching an employee recognition campaign highlighting the voice of the employee, Ms. Meyer will share actionable examples for bringing “social” into the day-to-day business operations.
