, on Thursday, June 26th at 1pm EDT (10am PDT).
Join Ellen Cowan, social networking and community consultant and former director at LinkedIn as she addresses the implications of a Web 2.0 world on employees and human resources. Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn and many other social networking sites have become major global players, promising to connect friends, colleagues and employees like never before. While Web 2.0, Social Media and Social Networking are continuing to expand, many large companies have yet to take advantage of these capabilities for internal use. How can these concepts be applied to talent management, employee engagement, training and development, hiring and retention? What are the risks and benefits associated with embracing Web 2.0 and social networking? This presentation will cover the landscape, trends and best practices for Web 2.0 and social networking as a primer for HR leaders.Register for the webinarAbout Ellen Cowan
