Social Media and HR
After reading article, “How Social Media Changes HR,” it was interesting to see how employers are now interacting with their employees. The article talks about how changes in company policy allows corporations to use Social Media as new tools to interact with employees. I am going to discuss some of the changes that are being made and the type of impact they are having.
With companies begin using different online tools that have been created to be used for social interactions to interact with their employees for business use. It is interesting to see this change for me because I feel like the social networks should be used for people to interact with their family and friends, not also having to get information from work there. If people want to work and get work information they will go on their work email or work computer.
I can see why employees would want to use these tools, they feel that their employees are using these tools all the time so they would be more likely to check their Facebook or Twitter when they are at home rather than their work email. This is good and bad for a couple of reasons. If something really important needs to get sent to people, that could be an affective method, but then again, is it really that important that people have to be working around the clock? I do not feel that is necessary.
If I worked for a company that wanted to give work notifications via social networks, I would hope they would make it an opt-in or opt-out option. Its great that they want everyone to work all the time, but that doesn’t mean people should have to and they especially need to have an option.
