A new infographic from Compliance and Safety offers a multitude of reasons why HR needs to be more involved, along with examples of why it’s a good idea over a bad one.
Some of the statistics from the infographic include:
- 91% of recruiters use social networks.
- Almost half of U.S. companies block their employees from accessing social networks.
- While Goldman Sachs invested in Facebook, it bans its employees from accessing the site.
There are some interesting takeaways from the infographic, but the key message (and one that all brands should be seriously thinking about) is workplaces actually become more effective and innovative if social media access is encouraged.
Don’t let your brand be one of the archaic ones.
