Social media is changing the way SAP HR professionals work. Learn how using social media can help you do your job more efficiently and effectively.

With the explosion of social media — Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, just to mention a few examples — the lines are increasingly blurred between what is social and what is business. Many companies are realizing the business potential of social media and using these tools to their benefit. Social media can expand the company’s branding and convey the message that the company wants to send to its customers. However, it also can work quite well internally, as illustrated by the synergy created by HR departments using social media to help them do their jobs better.

I recently interviewed Thomas Jenewein, who is in charge of business development and solution management at SAP Education. In his role, Thomas has seen firsthand how effective social and workplace networking can be. Because of his experience, he is an enthusiastic proponent of teaching learning and development professionals and HR employees how to use social media to more effectively do their jobs.
