It’s Midsummer today and that means we’re halfway through 2015 and in the Northern Hemisphere, Summer is finally here! (although the weather feels more like Autumn).
Summer brings about vacation; taking a few well-deserved days or weeks off from our hectic schedules to relax in a warm and sunny place. And whether you choose to spend your vacation staying at home, hiking, sitting on the beach or climbing a mountain top, there’s usually time for reflection.
In order to stimulate that reflection, I will be running a series of blogs that look at ways to use social media in HR. I use social media to stimulate my thinking process, so I’m going to explore this topic with a firm “What if” mindset in place: What if you would use social media instead of your current HR Tech solution?
I could raise lots of questions on privacy, security, single sign on and such topics, but it’s summer, so let’s step away from the constraints and think out of the box: Why not? I welcome your thoughts, comments and suggestions for social media to be included in this exploration!
So, on to the first question: What if… LinkedIn was your HR System?
