This Fall, I’ve had the pleasure of attending and speaking at five State SHRM Conferences (Illinois, Florida, Indiana, Colorado & Minnesota) about the topic “Using Social Media for HR & Recruiting” – and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it! I’m so excited to see continued and growing interest and enthusiasm from human resources & recruiting pros around learning more about how to utilize social media as part of their day-to-day activites.
To address that growing interest, a couple of the conferences I’ve attended – Illinois & Colorado – scheduled a full day of social media related sessions with presenters covering the topic from a variety of angles (including HR, recruiting, legal, usage by unions, etc.).
Last week, I spoke a the Minnesota SHRM Conference, and they included two day’s worth of social media offerings! On Day 1, I presented two sessions – “Using Social Media in HR: Attract, Recruit, Retain” and “Best Practices In Recruiting With Social Media” and my friend and favorite @MNHeadhunter – Paul DeBettignies – took over on Day 2, covering “Rocking LinkedIn: Profiles, Connections, Sourcing & Recruiting” and “Social Media for Recruiting: Let’s Get Doing”.
I thought I’d share my slide deck for the “Best Practices In Recruiting With Social Media” session in an effort to highlight some of the Minnesota employers (plus a few others) whom I believe are doing some cool and interesting things with their use of social media for recruiting and employment branding.
The companies listed above are just a few of the ones that I often highlight in many of my presentations.
What other companies would you suggest that are really innovative in utilizing social media with their HR, recruiting and/or employment branding efforts? Share some examples with us in the comments section!
