Contemporary Perspectives: The Impact of Social Media on the Field of Human Resources Management

Randy McCamey, Rachel Olson


The Winter 2019 edition of the journal is our first special issue. The objective of this special issue is to explore current research in both social media (SM) and human resource management (HRM) by examining the intersection of these two fields of study. Articles are presented that investigate ways social media is used to provide greater or more meaningful outcomes for organizations, by use or integration of SM in organizational HRM programs and practices, or for individuals as they use SM to explore facets of the employment life cycle including recruiting, onboarding, development, retention, and retirement.
