Talent Corner: Using Social Media for Recruitment, Retention, and Branding
Back in the day, hiring a new employee meant taking out an ad in the local newspaper, retention was not a concern because employees would spend their entire working careers at one company, and branding typically involved creating a logo and a catchphrase.
My how things have changed! And, social media is one of the biggest game changers when it comes to talent recruitment, retention, and branding. There are so many ways to use Web 2.0 for talent, but how do you use these tools effectively? In this video, Cisco’s own talent expert Mimish L’Esperance talks about ways to use Facebook, Twitter, video — and some new tools, too.
Mimish will be sharing more on social media and talent at Cisco’s HR Talent Forums for partners. Read on to find out how to sign up for these free workshops.
