Why you should attend: Jobvite's 2011 survey indicated that 80.2% of U.S. companies are already using social media to recruit and another 8.7% of companies are planning to begin this year. The explosion in the use of social media has dramatically increased the level of exposure to issues such as reputational risk, IP leakage, and copyright infringement for organizations. In short, social media have created a minefield for HR.

Practical solutions for countering inquiring minds and information traps.

Finding a balance through effective policy.
