Why You Should Attend The 2012 Social Media in HR Seminar

The 2012 Social Media in HR Seminar
Tapping into the Power of Social Networks

April 17-18, 2012
NYSSA Conference Center
New York, NY

Some argue that human resources professionals are late-adopters when it comes to anything technology related, including social media. But the popularity and possibilities that social recruiting have brought to the profession are causing HR pros to take notice.

While part of HR’s role is to mitigate legal risks, another very large component is to help support and cultivate the corporate culture. As social media becomes more defined in the business world, human resources professionals will have a significant opportunity to leverage this powerful medium in many aspects of the business.
