Social Media for HR and Mining

After a successful presentation at the ITC HR in Government conference last year, I’m presenting this year at their ITC HR in Mining Africa Conference The ITC HR in Mining Africa Conference is the premier gathering of HR professionals from the mining industry, to  explore the latest HR developments and trends.   The conference runs over 2 days, 29th and 30th August 2012.

Social Media

The mining industry has been slow to adopt social media to attract, engage and retain talent. I’m pleased to present our Social Media for HR workshop at the conference on 30 August.  With the spotlight firmly on the mining sector – the Marikana tragedy, ongoing tension between management and labour and regulatory uncertainty,  now is an opportune time to harness the power of social media.

I look forward to sharing social media for HR with delegates at the ITC HR in Mining Africa conference.

Get to grips with Social Media

Social Media for HR demystifies social media for HR professionals, using the story of a organisation that makes the transition from offline to online talent acquisition and engagement.

In particular, I will unpack:

1.  War for Talent and Social media – unless you have been living underneath a rock, to the war for talent is online.

2.   Social media, talent & bottom line –  in the context of softer global demand, the mining sector is grappling with high wage demands and unprofitable mines.  Social media can help HR on the financial front.

3.    Building the employment brand & value proposition online –  HR can use social media to win talent that may have never considered a career in the mining sector.

4.     Navigating Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and Youtube

5.     Driving talent acquisition through social media6

6     Using social media to engage the generational workforce – baby boomers, Gen X & Y, here we come
