HR needs to be in the conversation, not an afterthought. This could be a Marketing driven initiative but HR/Recruiting must own the employment branding and “career” engagement. It is critical to understand the company’s initiatives and objectives in social and be able to enhance the company messaging. From a recruitment perspective, you have to create your own goals. Define the objectives and where you want to spend time. Do not have your entire team speaking under the company account as having a constant voice is critical. Once you have defined these areas, you may now implement your program. This will take time to build a following and be engaging but as you grow, you must review to ensure time and resources are being spent appropriately and effectively.
