Social Media, not a part of overall HR tech Strategy
Yes, you heard it right. Social Media remains off the shelf when it comes to leveraging social for HR tech recruiting. Companies refrain from using Social Media tools in their strategies, thereby settling with lower efficiency and penetration in the market. Rather, their focus should be agility, flexibility and to enhance their reach for acquiring new customers.
According to David Ulrich, HR should be a “technology proponent,” which means synchronization with the current trends. Social add-ons can lift HR tech SaaS and augment the communications between the diverse workforces of today.

How can software deliver if something is not implemented correctly? This is what happens in the case of most HR tech SaaS adopters as per technology research firm Gartner’s survey where 50-75% of all HR initiatives fail to deliver. The primary reason for not getting the results is poor administration and zero adoption of these technologies for their use.
