NHS Networks: HR and Social Media guidance

NHS Employers has published guidance to help the NHS realise the benefits of social media and implement a more permissive approach to its use.
‘HR and social media in the NHS’ explains that social media is increasingly becoming central to the ongoing effectiveness of the NHS. It argues that there is a need for a more open approach alongside greater clarity on professional behaviour and the importance of confidentiality.  The guidance provides examples to help human resources managers, leaders and communications staff use social media more effectively within their organisations.

East Cheshire’s NHS Trust has entrusted IT company 6pm to rollout its HR Vision Business Process Management solution.

Developed by 6pm, HR Vision is based on the world-beating xCP BPM platform by EMC, and has more than 20 processes already developed for human resources including recruitment, appraisal and changes in contractual circumstances, allowing HR teams and service managers to track their cases online. The solution complements applications already used in human resources by managing the business process more effectively.

“Not only will the initial processes enable us to organise our workload much more efficiently, we will have the ability in-house to add more processes to further streamline the operation and provide a more cost efficient HR service to our customers,” Cheshire HR Services managing director Sally Campbell said. “We expect to see the return on investment in the first 12 months.”
