Social media continues to be a hot topic in the work place. Everyone is trying to figure out how much impact social media has on recruiting, retention, customer engagement, employee development…and what are the legal ramifications.
One organization that is trying to help you make sense of all this is The Human Resource Professionals of Central PA (a chapter of SHRM – Society for Human Resource Management). They have invited me to participate as a guest panelist at their spring conference.
I am going to be participating on a “Multi-Generational Panel” discussing technology and social media in the work place. As a guy in my mid 40’s I may very well be the “old guy” on the panel (which is rather humbling), but I hope to provide my thoughts on the importance of social media. Too often we think of social media as just for young people or something that is a “time waster.”
However, as this “old guy” firmly believes knowledge and relationships will make you and your organization better. I firmly believe that technology and social media are a critical component in my life to deepen my relationships and gain wisdom.
