WOODCLIFF LAKE, NEW JERSEY (June 2, 2016) — Lee Hecht Harrison, the world leader in Talent Development and Transition, announced the launch of their exclusive social media networking community. It’s a powerful online tool that allows current and former individuals in LHH career transition programs to connect, get support from expert career coaches, share information, exchange ideas, engage in discussions, collaborate, and stay in touch after completing their programs.
What sets our social media networking community apart is size, scale and reach.
Greg Simpson, Senior Vice President, Career Transition Practice Leader for Lee Hecht Harrison, stated, “Our social media networking community is a secure and private forum available only to individuals currently or formerly enrolled in our career transition programs. With 3,500 members—and growing—it’s a thriving community of talented people, knowledge and opportunity. What sets our social media networking community apart is size, scale and reach. We work with tens of thousands of individuals around the world who are supported by thousands of professional career coaches—all coming together collectively around mutual interests, goals and passions.”
Simpson said that creating an LHH social media networking community was a natural step in the evolution of the career transition experience. “Today, one in every five minutes spent online is focused on social networking. And HR managers reported in our latest study on recruiting and hiring practices that they expect the effectiveness of networking as a method to source job candidates to increase over the next two to three years.”
Simpson added that this is another in a series of technology-based innovations LHH is rolling out in the coming year. “Integrated with our breakthrough technology, Next Gen CRN, the LHH social media networking community reinforces our strategy to deliver a highly personalized job search experience throughout the entire career transition journey. Our social media networking community emphasizes personal connections and ensures content and interactions are uniquely relevant and meaningful to each individual.”
