HR survey - HR Executives and Social Media

Social media is the collective term for all internet based applications that allow users to exchange information with each other on a real-time basis. Starting in the 1990s with early instant messaging services the concept really took off with the launch of Facebook in 2004 and Twitter in 2006 with many, many more in the following years. Recent developments have seen social media move away from a purely personal format into the business world where it has enabled business professionals to exchange information and ideas about themselves, and the business world in a more open and direct way.

We at Carter Morris were keen to understand both the degree to which social media is a part of a HR professional’s life and the impact it has on their career planning.
