We had Lindsay Mitrosilis on The Porch to talk about LinkedIn as a strategy for recruiting and retaining top talent.
Big picture takeaways:
HR Leaders, hear Lindsay out. Employees SHOULD be on LinkedIn and active. If you’re afraid they’ll get poached and leave, that’s a whole different issue.
When it comes to recruiting the next generation of top talent, building your virtual presence as a leader is the most important thing you can do. People want to work for a person they like and know - showcasing your presence on LinkedIn does just that.
When you feel tension around having an online presence, remember, you have full permission to set boundaries. Delete negative comments, ignore requests of people spamming you, and set limits for yourself.
