Join survey on Social media and HRM


I am partnering with Executive Networks to collect data for my research project on the diffusion of social media in HR and HRM practices. I have collaborated with Executive Networks in developing their ongoing discourse on HRM in Europe as Academic in residence. They agreed to submit the survey to members of their network. However, this is an independent research program, under my direct supervision.

I developed a questionnaire to capture the major trends, and I would really like you to submit your responses. Existing research on Social media and HR is biased by the absence of large enough samples, and methods that are not suitable for reliable empirical testing. It is my intention to fill this gap.

For validity issues, I am targeting either Senior HR Leaders or HR specialists working within a specific organization (the questionnaire is not intended for external practitioners or consultants), but you are welcome to give it a look, and maybe suggest it to other colleagues who fit the required respondents’ profiles.

Here is the link to the online survey, which should take around 15 minutes to complete: SURVEY LINK

Social business forum 2012


In an hour or so I am joining the Social Business Forum 2012 here in Milan. It is a great event, organized by OpenKnowledge (I am their Scientific Advisor on topic relating social media to HR), which bring together top expertise from all over the world.

This year guys at OpenKnowledge made a bold move, they decided to propose a Social Business Manifesto with 59 thesis/ statements on how the world of business has changed and shall change in the coming years.

I supported the Manifesto with some of my thoughts which appeared on Harvard Business Review Italia.
