This presentation was made to the audience of Human Resource Excellence Forum 2014, Mumbai during Jan'14. The audience comprised of primarily senior HR folks were engaged in a conversation around the role of Social Media in HR space and how can it transform the very notion and current practices in HR. Many a times, a scary idea for the folks in HR who prefer to create and regulate the organizational practices and go by the rule book. Throw that away to the wind my HR mates!
