As social media becomes more integrated into corporate and business cultures, it is especially important for the human resource industry to have a foundational understanding of how their companies as well as their employees are using social media.

Human Resources veteran Jessica Miller-Merrell is finally revealing how the busy HR Professional can traverse the ever changing landscape of social media to benefit their organization. During a special Tulsa Area Human Resources Association event (TAHRA Social Media Boot Camp) on April 28th, Miller-Merrell along with Carrie Corbin is teaching a foundational social media course. It covers the basics of social media including; activating and using accounts on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, LinkedIn and Blogging Platforms.
This four hour lab with Tulsa Area Human Resources Association , Social Media Bootcamp, is a preview of the course that Jessica Miller-Merrell and Carrie Corbin will be presenting at the SHRM National Conference in Las Vegas - Social Media Bootcamp!
As a Human Resource Professional on the forefront of Social Media Strategies, Miller-Merrell believes that it is critical that all Human Resource personnel stay educated on the uses of social media, not only to employ the best talent, but mitigate corporate risk.
In an interview with publicist Tatyana Gann, Miller-Merrell states, “HR is the keeper of communication, conversations and investigations. As social media blurs into these three, it makes HR's role and importance in understanding social media all the more crucial for businesses to engage their candidates, employees and clients successfully in the channels they frequent.”
During the course of this TAHRA Social Media Boot Camp, Miller-Merrell and Corbin cover the following strategic topics:
- Social media monitoring and research strategies.
- Provide case studies of 15 companies who are effectively using social media solutions to build and communicate with organizations.
- Discuss current and future laws and how they are applicable to social media and how they affect the workplace.
A workbook will be provided to attendees of the TAHRA Social Media Boot Camp that covers the fundamentals of social media policies, best practices and other resources recommended by human resource professionals.
Human Resource professionals who attend the TAHRA Social Media Boot Camp will come to appreciate the integral role that social media plays in the corporate employee environment.
