Setting up a Twitter profile is fairly easy. To begin with you simply need to enter your company name and an email address. It is wise to use an email address that can be accessed by several members of staff in case of illness or if an employee leaves the company. If you already have an info@ or hr@ address this would be a good idea.
A quick overview of the changes coming to Facebook fan pages.
Facebook have announced that they are to make changes to the Facebook Fan Pages layout.
You can see all the details here.
It seems the biggest change will be that instead of the current 2 column layout where content was displayed on both sides and often out of sync, content will solely be displayed on the right hand side which should create a more streamlined look.
Personally I don’t think the changes are big enough to worry about, however if you manage your organisations main page or recruitment page then you might want to take a look.
With just 25 addresses listed in Strixton, you might be forgiven for believing that there is not a lot happening here. At the end of a sleepy lane lies a Business Centre. Converted barns and a highly efficient new-build office block are home to several small businesses including Marco Beverage Systems, Crushed Ice, Verticality and MS Legal. This idyllic location is also the birthplace of EasyWeb Recruitment.
Today is World Kidney Day! It’s a day to raise awareness of the importance of your kidneys - this year, the focus is on Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).
It’s especially important to staff here at EasyWeb, as Marketing Manager Debbie’s partner, Angelo, was diagnosed with CKD in 2012. Along with Account Director Sean and partner Lena, they have gone on to form Random Acts of Kidney, a fundraising group set up to raise money for Kidney Research UK and raise awareness of CKD.
How does HR use Social Media?
This infographic shows that only 69% of HR Departments surveyed are using Social Media for recruitment. A large proportion of the population are using social media more than once a day therefore if you haven’t already started working social media in to your recruitment strategy. Now may be the time to start. HR professionals are using social media to communicate with employees, to improve branding, promote events, research and even check out potential employee’s profiles.
I came across this article on the CIPD website with some "Shocking Resignations" from HR professionals. It reminded me of a situation I faced at an ex-employer.
We had a maternity cover temp in who was due to stay for 9 months and one day about 5 weeks into the assignment she told us she needed to go to the Doctors. She never returned. All attempts to make contact were ignored and needless to say we were worried that she had received bad news at the doctors or had an accident.
