There is a key difference between the organisations who are the best and those who aspire to be the best. The top-performing organisations have set an example for us by recruiting a new breed of a C-level employee. That’s right, the top-most Human Resource leader is no more the one handling paperwork and dealing with petty issues. Now, more organisations are realizing the importance and need of a skilled CHRO to oversee the complete human component of an organisation.
Social media is transforming HR and recruitment
Fifty-eight percent of organisations in South Africa are using social media for recruitment, according to a 2013 SA HR Recruitment Trend Survey. This isn't surprising given the increasing popularity of social media amongst South Africans, with at least 13 million using Facebook and 7.4 million on Twitter. While HR departments across the nation may be a little behind other countries like the US, when it comes to utilising social HR, they are increasingly embracing the latest technology available.
