The Benefits of Social Media Recruiting

There’s no doubt that social media has had a massive impact on HR processes. From reinforcing the employer brand to integrating HR and marketing strategies, social media gives HR a high-powered weapon for connecting with key audience segments – especially prospective candidates. In fact, a growing number of companies are leveraging social media recruiting to access new talent pools and boost acquisition numbers. Recent studies show that 54% of recruiters use Facebook and more than 60,000 jobs are tweeted out each day.

Still, there are plenty of HR teams that haven’t tapped into social media recruiting yet, and many are wondering why the tactic is becoming such a big deal. Well, read on to find out why.

Ford CEO: Mindfulness Improves Workplace Culture

Healthy workplace culture

It’s official: the Dalai Lama is a Ford guy. Well, not quite, but it sounds as if he’d be a big fan of the workplace culture they’re creating down at Ford Australia. According to HC Online, executives are introducing the ancient Buddhist practice of mindfulness into the day-to-day work environment. CEO Graeme Whickman says Ford Australia is using mindfulness, which incorporates elements like yoga, meditation,
and breathing exercises, to improve workplace focus, productivity, efficiency and creativity. Whickman says the mindfulness initiative has also been key to building a company culture centered on relationships and teamwork.

Mindfulness in the workplace is still in the early stages at Ford, but participation has already jumped 125% from 2015 and 100 more managers are set to enter the training program. So if the Dalai Lama wasn’t driving a Ford already, he might want to strongly consider it.

Next Step: Measuring Mindfulness in a Workplace Culture?

Ford isn’t the only major company taking a mindful leap – multiple companies are embracing mindfulness and the positive impact it has on workplace culture and the talent acquisition process. The question is: Is it working? CEO’s like Whickman say it is, but a natural progression from using mindfulness practices in the workplace would be finding a way to measure their effectiveness.
