p>HR professionals, how do you use new social media tools? If you said, “I’m not,” you’re missing out on a potentially revolutionary HR management resource. I am very excited to be participating in an upcoming seminar that will be teaching HR pros exactly what these tools are and showing you how to put them to use. HR’s Social Media Virtual Summit will explain:
- How to use social-networking sites to target the right job candidates with the right credentials;
- How online videos generate excitement about your company and improve your on-boarding and retention efforts;
- How to avoid legal risks resulting from employees’ posts on your company-run blog or social-networking site; and
- How to turn Twitter into a quick, effective micro-training tool.
Not only am I excited about the content but I’m also looking forward to the way in which the seminar will be presented. This all-day conference is being presented live online. My co-presenters and I will be live in Nashville, TN, where we’ll be presenting to attendees via live video stream on the internet. So participants can stay home, saving the time and expense of travel, and watch the entire day-long seminar from their office or conference room. This is such a neat format and I can’t wait to put it to work! Just think, you can earn 5.5 hours of recertification credit in a single day without leaving home.
I’ll be presenting with a great line-up of faculty, including:
- Jerry Stevenson, director of social media and knowledge management in the human resources technology practice at Buck Consultants, an ACS company;
- James D. Lynch is Vice President of Employee Communications at the American Express Company, where he manages all internal communications for 22,000 employees worldwide.
You can register and find out more about the summit at the HR Hero website, but here’s a preview of the agenda:
- Locate the right talent using social media
- Legal trouble spots to avoid when using social media for recruitment
- Take employee productivity and communication to new heights with social media
- Energize workplace learning using social media tools
- Social media policies that protect your organization from lawsuits

- Live Q&A with the faculty (via e-mail and Twitter!)
