    [Twitter] Forget Your Social Strategy. What’s Your HR Strategy?
    If not, at the very least I’m sure a quick Twitter search will reveal some complaints from employees.  'Image via BigStockPhoto.com I’m a firm believer that no one should “own” social. Owning social does not only lead to bias, but it is usually not scalable. As everything I do is through the lens of a global, multi-branded enterprise, I’m big on scalability. And it doesn’t get more scalable than employee advocacy. At Hilton Worldwide, we have a team of 100+ employee advocates that tweet through the @HiltonSuggests handle. The second idea is what I want to dive into today. That’s it.

    [Twitter] While Writing In Ink, It’s In Pencil We Think
    Follow SmallBizTracks on Twitter or Facebook or on Google+. 'We make a lot of plans, scopes , and schedules. While we may do the writing in ink, it’s in pencil we think.
