Understanding the role of social media in talent engagement
As the prevalence of social networks continues to grow, more and more of us are using the likes of Twitter and Facebook for not just personal, but business use. Indeed, last Christmas Twitter revealed that it had more than 200 million monthly unique users; with both people and businesses keen to get involved and reap the benefits of this increasingly mainstream communication medium.
So with interest in social media at an all time high, does it have real relevance for businesses beyond representing a nice add-on?
Lucian Tarnowski, founder and CEO of BraveNewTalent.com, believes social media has created a fundamental shift in the way organisations communicate and engage with talent. He believes talent is king in the modern workplace and will explain how businesses can use social media to engage and foster talent, in a free Skillsoft webinar on Wednesday 27 March at 12pm GMT.
In the session, Lucian will explore:
- The effect and impact of social media on the talent function.
- How next generation talent now expects to be engaged online.
- The opportunity to leverage the internal knowledge and content at your organisation to the external world.
- Social learning trends and the future of online learning.
If you are interested in finding out more about how to use social media to attract and retain top talent, visit our event page to register for the free webinar. We look forward to seeing you (virtually at least!) on the day.
