I happen to agree with Anne, technology in the form of social media really helps you find good man power. Not just companies, more and more well qualified professionals are advertising their skills online.

I don't agree entirely with Steve here - HR is increasingly using tools such as LinkedIn to recruit staff and network with new communities. HR's responsibility is to protect their organizations' and employees' data from improper use, but at the same time embrace these networking tools. It's quite a challange, but we will get there :)

Until executive leadership grants HR the responsibility to embrace social media and external communities, HR will always be a buffer for companies to try new things. Riks trumps innovation in most firms today.
