Social Media and HR’s Place in Business

A shift is happening in the HR an workplace space.  Social media is no longer an acceptable strategy for online and internet recruiting.  It is about social media for collaboration, engagement with employees to help share and information as an employee morale, retention, and knowledge sharing tool.  Internal social media and networks are particularly on the minds of human resource professionals.  Silk Road this week released, an interesting infographic and study on social talent and technology for HR and Recruiting (download here).  Here are some snippets.

Social Media Statistics and Infographic
