Social Media and the Talent Landscape: What HR Needs to Know about Social Media

Presented by

Gail Houston - ManpowerGroup Solutions Lead Recruiter for Intuit and Mark Toth - ManpowerGroup Chief Legal Officer

About this talk

Despite the slow and uneven recovery from the global economic downturn and lingering high levels of unemployment in many markets, organizations around the world still report that they cannot find the talent they need when they need it. According to ManpowerGroup’s 2011 Talent Shortage Survey, one in three employers globally report difficulties filling positions due to lack of available talent—a slight increase since 2010. Talent is becoming the key competitive differentiator, and companies with access to the right talent are working to position themselves to succeed in the rapidly changing world of work. Social media can especially be a powerful resource for recruiters, yet in the majority of organizations, recruiters are not getting the training they need to be successful at finding the right talent for their organizations. Learn how Intuit Right Talent created a holistic social media strategy that recognized them as the second most social company in 2011, ahead of companies like Google, Amazon, and Apple in order to create a social media strategy to reach your recruitment goals and help your organization stay on top of finding the right talent.
