HR 'not taking advantage of Web 2.0'
A new report is encouraging Human Resources (HR) departments to take advantage of the opportunities created by the advances in Web 2.0 technology.

Launched by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), the report, entitled Web 2.0 and Human Resource Management: 'Groundswell' or hype?, suggests that many HR departments are overlooking potential benefits.

This is because many have fears about employee misbehaviour or have concerns they may lose control over the technology's use, Online Recruitment reports.

Discussing the potential of Web 2.0, Vanessa Robinson, CIPD adviser of organisation and resourcing, said: "HR is in danger of playing catch up as a profession in failing to advance the interests of organisations by navigating them through the undoubted benefits."

Research conducted by Experteer.co.uk recently discovered that 3pm on Thursday is the busiest time of the week for online job searches, suggesting that many employees hunt for vacancies during work hours.
