Social Media and HR: How Human Resources Can Harness New Media for Improved Results
Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel •
In working on several highly successful social media and innovation events it became clear to me that may people needed to go beyond an overview of social media …
Learn how HR can harness the social media revolution.
Without doubt the rapid growth of social media is changing how businesses operate across Canada—and while no function is left untouched, it is HR that needs to be on the front line, pioneering adoption while managing risk. Your employees, suppliers, and customers have all embraced social media. The question is: how can you use social media to your greatest advantage?
This event addresses how social media is changing the way your organization works internally and the role HR can play in leading this transformation. With these changes come concerns about implementation, and the decisions about which approaches and applications are best for your needs.
Featuring James Norrie—one of North America’s leading social media experts.
This event will feature two tailor-made, interactive, and in depth sessions by James Norrie who will act as your guide to the changing landscape of social media. James cuts through the hype as he challenges audiences to rethink their business in light of new technologies. He understands and clearly communicates the technical and social changes that you will have to deal with to succeed with social media. James will provide a whirlwind tour of new developments, introduce you to the options available, and then work with you to examine how you can take a leadership role in this area, both through developing a policy and driving implementation in your organization.

Get answers to your most challenging social media questions.
New technology and processes cause anxiety. This is particularly true with social media, where comfort levels and experience vary greatly, and new and unforeseen ways to work disrupt long-established practices. There’s also the issue of organizational and personal privacy. How do you ensure that private information is protected in media that are built on their openness and accessibility?
Answer these questions and more with the practical implementation case studies and better practices of the innovators. You’ll also benefit from their experience in making social media work for their organization.
