Social media is a major focus at this year’s IL SHRM conference and the TweetUp is a time for conference attendees to network, unwind and enjoy all that the conference has to offer in a more casual setting. Appetizers will be served and drink tickets covering beer and wine will be provided upon arrival to the TweetUp. A cash bar will also be available.
“The TweetUp gives conference goers the chance to physically meet their virtual community,” said Emily Lewis, Director of Marketing at Dovetail Software. “It’s a good opportunity to build personal relationships with your social media contacts, which ultimately makes social media a more effective tool.”
For HR professionals less experienced with social tools, the conference will have several sessions focusing on getting started with social media. Dovetail’s Dwane Lay, Director of HR Process Design and a well-known presence in the HR social media landscape, will be talking about how to leverage social media in the workplace at TalentNet Live on Sunday before the conference.
Social media labs will also be running throughout the event to give hands-on training and advice for using social technology and tools effectively.
“The social media labs are a great way to get up to speed on the technology that will shape our profession in the next decade.” said Lay, who will be one of the speakers running the labs.
In addition to sponsoring the TweetUp, Dovetail Software will be exhibiting at booth #302 in the IL SHRM Conference Exhibit Hall.
