Jobvite's 2011 survey indicated that 80.2% of US companies are already using Social Media to recruit and another 8.7% of companies are planning to begin this year.
The explosion in the use of social media has dramatically increased the level of exposure to issues such as reputational risk, IP leakage, and copy right infringement for organizations. In short, social media has created a minefield for HR. This unique tool introduces new complexity, even legal risks, to compliance with hiring practices that need to be explored. Now that every employee has a virtual megaphone, allowing them to share information across the globe, itâ€™s time to stop asking how to keep employees from using social media and start figuring out how to integrate the tool into your work cultures.
There are several ways to use social media but there is potential fallout that might be overlooked in our fast-paced world. As a professional, itâ€™s important to get ahead of the curve. While only 20% of policies are written by HR, 100% of them will sooner or later involve HR and for far more challenging reasons than just accountability to the normal documentation process.
