While tempting, use caution when combining social media with hiring and employee management efforts.

When searching for new talent, it may be tempting to use social media. The way we get information has changed thanks to the always-connected digital world and social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc. As a human resource professional, is the accessibility of this information good or bad when hiring? The information age has made things easier and more complicated at the same time. This session will explore how to use the digital world in your role as an HR professional, yet avoid the pitfalls. It will also address ways social media can be leveraged to spread the word and share your credit union’s positive message.
