Social Networking & Human Resources
Last week I had the pleasure of speaking to the HR Forum of the Information Technology Association of Canada. I was given the task of talking about social networking, how business uses social networks, and how they may be used in human resources. Since members of ITAC are in the technology industry, I also talked about online spaces and communities that IT staff may be involved in. My slides are below.
Also speaking were Dan Michaluk of the law firm Hicks Morley and Sheldon Silverman, Counsel at AMD. Dan spoke to the question of managing employee use of social media applications, especially how to manage risk. He has shared his slides on his blog All About Information. Sheldon rounded out the discussion by providing an interesting case study of internal social media policy.
