The link below will take you to Briefing 87: "HR and Social Media in the NHS: an essential guide for HR directors and managers".

 http://www.nhsemployers.org/Aboutus/Publications/Documents/HR-social-media-NHS.pdf

This briefing discusses four main questions:
•What is social media?
•What potential impact will social media have on HR work?
•How are HR and other NHS professionals currently using social media?
•What advice and guidance is available for HR and other NHS professionals?

 

With good wishes,
