Human Resources Keynote Speech
The opportunity for human resources professionals is to engage with younger candidates in a new and exciting way. Today’s youth are approaching the job market in different ways and their career expectations are different as well. They have grown up in the public domain and are less sensitive to privacy issues. They’re fueled by intrinsic motivators like autonomy, mastery and purpose, and they are learning from their peers on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. The best job applicants are usually best friends with your best current employees. So by engaging on social media, companies can attract better candidates with less effort and build a cohesive team that expand business opportunities for everyone.
Human resources professionals know that Facebook and Twitter represent a colossal waste of time for most people using them. But they also know that a select few are leveraging these platforms and achieving massive results. In his 60-minute keynote program, Patrick will introduce your attendees to a series of case histories where people and business have used simple but powerful strategies to explode their businesses virtually overnight. If you’re looking for a new perspective on today’s increasingly social technologies, Patrick will deliver the excitement and buzz you’re hoping for.
