This week the HR Happy Hour Show goes a bit 'inside baseball' so to speak, with an examination and conversation about the state of the HR blogosphere; the increasing amount of activity, participation,and possible noise in the online HR space; and a look at whether or not all this activity, content creation,and energy expenditure is having an impact on the day-to-day practice of HR and Talent Management in organizations.
Social and participatory technologies have created more forums for the creation and propagation of news, opinion, insight, and quite honestly promotion and advertising, that it seems like not a minute of the day goes by without a new blog post being published, a webinar being given, or a series of hashtag-indicated live tweets from one of the newly created grass-roots gatherings.
But are the HR bloggers/speakers/social mavens having an impact in the real world of HR?
Are we really just saying lots of similar things to a discrete and committed audience?
Is the sheer volume making it impossible to keep up, and to discover the real value and insights being created and shared in the space?
Join guests Kris Dunn, John Sumser, and guest co-host Trish McFarlane with host Steve Boese for a look at the state of the online HR world. I hope you can join us!
