"Amanda, I can tell from your various posts that you are extremely passionate about referral programs, and social recruitment! You are spot on with the characteristics; however, I feel companies should also focus on creating education on how to…"

Bringing Recruiting back Home: Sodexo

One of the most frequent questions Careerify receives is, “Which company has been the most successful when it comes to social recruitment?” Sodexo USA comes to mind immediately. Led by the very energetic and strategic Arie Ball, VP Talent Acquisition, Sodexo has created a strong and communicative network between its HR team and its potential candidates and applicants.

The Conundrum that is Social Media

Ten months ago I attended a potential client meeting. The senior vice-president of human resources, whom I had just met, wished me a happy belated birthday and told me my blog on goal-oriented rewards was very interesting. A simple Google search of my name had led her to my Facebook page and my blog, giving her insight to both my personal and professional lives.Social…See More

NO! My employment brand is being damaged on Social Media!

A disgruntled former employee wouldn’t normally be considered news worthy and wouldn’t get any coverage in traditional news outlets but social media gives him a forum to voice his opinion, potentially attracting similarly disgruntled employees. Together, they form a community with the sole purpose of bringing down the organization, whether by warning prospective employees against joining the organization on employer-review forums like Glassdoor or forming …See More

How Organizations are Dealing with Social Media – Part 3: Computer Terminals and Full Acceptance

Designated computer terminalsAllowing employees to access social media sites on computer terminals that are on a separate server from the one that houses the organization’s confidential data will protect an organization from external attacks through social media. But employees may complain they don’t have time to access social media sites because there’s a line of employees waiting to use the terminals. Some employees only…See More

Putting a Prohibition on Probation Periods for Employee Referrals

Probation periods discourage employees from using your employee referral program, so why do companies even bother with them? Of the 1,100 employers that Careerify surveyed, the rationale for implementing and maintaining probation periods for employee referrals varied but few had merit. While corporations claim to have logic to preserving this practice, only the companies with truly “temporary” workforces (note: we classify “temporary” as those employees hired for ad-hoc work) had rhyme to…See More

Jessica Merrell, who has over 112,000+ followers, a book, and a consulting firm. With a single Tweet, she can make corporations cringe, or love her. She got fired because her last company was concerned about the following she had. It made me think, if an employee had such a tremendous following and clout, would you be concerned that on an off-day, they could single handed bring negative (or positive) attention to you? Jessica tells all in this feature that kick starts off a string of HR…See More
