For the last several years, companies such as Google, and Wal-Mart have become masters of data analytics and social outreach. They leverage data on consumer buying behaviors and social interactions to drive business decisions at all levels of the organization. Now we are looking at managing our hiring candidate pools with the same level of analysis and engagement. The clear line that used to separate how we interacted with our customers and how we interacted with our prospective employees has faded away. Join Stacey Harris, Vice President of Research for Brandon Hall Group, as she shares recent research and key practices in expanding your talent pools and leveraging social software to improve talent acquisition efforts.

Key takeaways include:

  • Understanding the social software space for talent acquisition.
  • Key practices in widening talent pools.
  • Tips for building a strong business case for social talent acquisition.
