Hello dear readers and friends. Hope you
are doing well. Today we will talk about how social HR has been redefining GenX
Thanks to the tech big bang, HRMS comes
with so many features, it can meet all your IT needs in one go. Today, our
focus will be on Social HR. In our age and time, we all have become dependent
on social media like never before, be it on Facebook, Youtube, Twitter,
Instagram, Pinterest, Reddit, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon, Wordpress, Tumbler,
Tinder, or some other platform. In this case, having a social HR feature to the
HRMS software is a blessing in disguise, isn’t it?
Here are some of the things you’ll love
about social HR:
Job Postings and Job
Descriptions aren’t boring anymore
Remember the time when writing JDs and
posting opening on multiple platforms, all single-handedly and manually, was
the most painful thing to do? Remember drowning yourself in CV hard copies and
newspaper ads? Now, you have it all on LinkedIn and HRMS. Using this feature,
current employees, who are not into Human Resources, can also help in
identifying and hiring new candidates – their own referrals.
Company’s HR and employees
can connect through social media
HRs are great at communication, or at least
they ought to be. And that’s why a company should give every HR the scope to
communicate as much as they can, without limiting them to communicating through
emails or verbally. This kind of communication is most effective if the teams
are huge and spread over various demographics globally. Employee trends, new
candidate behavior, opening / vacancy, etc. can be conveyed and discussed.
More sharing of
information, more transparency, more motivation
Every company has a range of perks set
aside for the workforce. But more often than not, the HRs are unable to keep
every employee informed about the benefits they could reap. The social HR helps
here too. Opportunities and benefits like employee referral bonuses, tuition
fee reimbursement, pending annual leave, etc. can be systematically conveyed
while the time is still right.
Social HR is not the solution to all of
your HR woes. But it is an effective means of communication, and if you do not
use it to the fullest, you are probably losing out on a valuable and cost efficient
way to address challenges.
Now how about 2 obnoxious myths about
social HR? Here we go…
It is difficult to use the
tool and feature without supervision
This is by far the funniest thing we have
heard. It is neither difficult, nor do you have to break your head to put
two-and-two together. The only worry probably could be that your HRs could
misuse the extent of social media usage. But then again, use the trust factor.
They’re your employees.
Social media propagates a lot of fun, but you
can also do some serious work
Can you say that all you’ve ever done on
social media is to share silly jokes? Well, if yes, you haven’t used social
media to its optimum. Here’s a list a of some other things you can do as well.
Look up a candidate on LinkedIn
or even Google.com
Participate in peer forums and
Interact with employees on the
Share insights, info, and more
And the list never seems to end.
