The HR Certification Institute is now on the main social media sites. In this article, we will explore the different types of content you will find within each of our social media channels.


Our Profile: @HRCertInstitute

Audience: If you are a Twitter fan or simply do not have time to read lengthy messages, our Twitter page may be the best platform to stay updated on latest developments with certification matters.

Content: Exam-related matters, current certification announcements in less than 140 characters. During the Annual Conference, Twitter served as a great announcement tool when the new Value of Certification research study was released. It also kept our certified HR professionals informed on the latest conference pictures and video links of the conference. We participated in the Tweetup event and gave away an iPad to Tweetup winner Robin Schooling.

Our SubGroup Profile: Certification Leaders of the HR Certification Institute

Audience: Certification CLA only

Content: Certification resources, certification-marketing materials, events for Certification CLA, special announcements. This group was created based on the specific needs of the Certification CLA. The Certification CLA took part in the “Promote Eligibility Requirements” contest where the best idea to promote the 2011 eligibility requirements wins an iPad. This contest was only available through LinkedIn and the winner is Dr. Fraya Wagner-Marsh, SPHR, GPHR, from the GAASHRM chapter in Michigan.
