Human Capital Management Using Web 2.0

Here's an interesting looking conference that I'll be speaking at in October. My topic - Managing the Digital Generation. Fascinating. I'm going to talk about stealing staff on FaceBook, picking up co-workers on Mixit and leaking company secrets on Digg... Should be good.

If you're interested, contact Nigel Brown from Classic Events.

Human Capital Management using Web 2.0 Technology will run on Monday 20 and Tuesday 21 October 2008 at The Wanderers Club, 21 North Road, Illovo, Johannesburg.

The conference will enable delegates to learn more about enterprise 2.0 solutions that will harness the collective intelligence of human capital within your organisation. Over the two days we will explore best practices for social media deployment behind the corporate fire wall, experience first hand insights from eight different case studies, and take advice from current leaders in this field.

Case studies include: ACSA, Cerebra clients, Deloitte, Discovery, Huddlemind, IBM, The Johannesburg Roads Agency,, SAB Ltd and The Virtual Works clients.

The Deloitte Web 2.0 for Employee Engagement case study is of particular interest as this project is truly innovative on a global scale. What Deloitte and leading community engagement specialists, The Virtual Works, have developed and implemented is way ahead of the competition, and will prove to be a useful and practical example of how a business can strategically apply the social networking concept for competitive business advantage in the human capital arena.

The event has deliberately been split into two focus areas to allow organisations to send two people from two different departments – each on a different day. Day one will focus on Talent Management which includes talent engagement, talent identification, talent retention, reward and succession planning whilst day two will focus on Learner Management Systems, online mentoring, documenting leadership, the future worker and employee wellness.

There is a healthy 20% early bird discount if you book by 26 September 2008.

All delegates who register to attend will receive an eBook on Web 2.0 and will be directed to where a special virtual sandpit has been prepared by Jonathan Hall at The Virtual Works as part of our introductory information and exercises on Web 2.0. This enables us to pitch all the presentations at a certain level so the conference will not be “beginner’s level”.

Oh, and great to see the coverage from my former company The Virtual Works. Offering delegates access to exclusive social network sandboxes and presenting our world leading Enterprise 2.0 solution. Good to see life ticks on!
