While the Discussion List on CaribHRForum is the heart and soul of cross-regional communication in the HR community, it also serves a powerful social networking function.
Before it existed, all that existed were a handful of relationships, plus the occasional conference attendee from another island. The Discussion List has made it easy for people to get to know and trust each other, and even to do business together — without meeting in person.
Facebook is an application that has made a quantum leap in making it easy to do social networking. It’s only natural that a CaribHRForum group be formed on that social networking site also.
I recommend that regional professionals find themselves on Facebook as fast as they can as it makes the effort of networking so very, very easy it serves as a major time-saver. Given that it’s free, it also saves on telephone bills, plane fares and postage stamps.
While some (if not many) will resist it at first, those who adopt it are discovering an immediate boost in their ability to network.
So. if you are on Facebook, join us on the page for CaribHRForum.
