Traditional Human Resources technology has been the HR system of record, keeping track of employee, payroll, and benefits information. While those systems remain critically important, the emergence of the social, mobile, and networked age has given rise to a new set of technologies that allow you to harness the collective power of employees, customers, and candidates to stimulate innovation, improve results, and engage the entire enterprise. This session will discuss the new world of HR social technology, define the problems that social tools can help solve, and provide insight and suggestions to best leverage these tools in your organization. Learn from relevant case studies how leading HR organizations have applied these social tools to solve business problems.

Date(s) & Time(s):
