Tuesday - 11/9/2010, 2:07pm EST

Mashable offers fours ways that social media can help human resources professionals do their jobs better:

  • Resources at your fingertips
    Social media expands your networks and allows you to find potential hires.
  • Balancing productivity and value
    Have a concrete mission or measurable goals for social media use.
  • Reevaluating corporate values
    Social media can allow HR pros to find business solutions faster. At the same time, customers will demand faster responses.
  • Supporting innovation
    In order to reach goals, organizations must realize "individuals must be encouraged and rewarded for using non-traditional thinking," according to Mashable.
