HR and the social organisation - Embracing social media for competitive advantage
ConnectingHR was an idea that started when Jon Ingham and Gareth Jones, two keen social media advocates and HR professionals met over coffee in January 2010. They realised that while Social Media was very much a high profile policy issue amongst the HR population, there were few HR professionals in the UK who were actively engaging with and using social media tools.
Connecting HR is pleased to announce the first UK Unconference for HR professionals on the 21st October 2010. This is the first unconference of its kind specifically catering for the field of HR.
Our headline theme is around embracing social collaboration, including social media tools within the HR function (L&D, OD, ER etc) and the wider organisation to improve business performance. Social networking/connecting and social media tools in general are rapidly rising up the HR agenda as a policy issue, yet the active use of these tools and the ethos of 'collaboration' is not widespread within those same organisations.
Together with the unconference attendees - that's you! - we aim to discuss this dynamic and provide the opportunity for those HR professionals who are still wrestling with the practical implementation of a social strategy to debate and learn from others who have already embraced this approach.
Who should attend?
HR professionals who are exploring social media use within their organisations - learn from those already embracing the social media in their organisations
HR professionals who are already using social media tools - come and share your learnings with others
Journalists/Academics and representatives of professional bodies - share your research or your analysis of how organisations are responding to the who are interested in, reporting on or studying social media
Independent consultants and suppliers to the HR profession - share your experiences of helping organisations leverage social media for business benefit
