What is Social HR?
‘Social HR’ refers to the fact of using social media to interact with employees and fulfill other HR functions. It is mostly used for recruitment; however, it is also being used for employee engagement and other HR-related functions nowadays.
While the responsibilities of social HR were accomplished using the major social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc., even HRMS software has started integrating social media functionality into their modules recently to make it more feature rich.
The major advantage of using social HR is that it can help the HR easily connect with the employees and even make time-consuming processes such as recruitment and hiring easier as it can target a larger number of candidates.
