Chirag Nangia, Founder and CEO of Reppify, will answer the question as to how companies can utilize social media and data to leverage their employee’s social networks to find hidden talent and sales leads amongst their connections.
Connect is IBM’s annual conference, featuring thousands of customers and employees, and will be taking place in Orlando, Florida. This year’s focus is all about “Energizing Life’s work,” enabling IBM employees and clients to push real business results. The conference will spotlight solutions that have discovered value in social and collaborative attitudes and will provide an unique opportunity for attendees to learn about new technologies, how they are used, the return on investment, and which are the best available options.
Chirag will highlight how Reppify and IBM are working together to help companies fully leverage the aggregated social connections of their employees to maximize productivity and gain efficiency. Referrals are a leading source of talent, and Reppify has engineered a platform to leverage employee’s social networks to match best-fit candidates against each job requisition. The Reppify Referral platform is tightly integrated with IBM Connections, providing a seamless experience for companies using both solutions. Together, Reppify and IBM will present the latest Referral and smarter workforce technology at Connect 2014.
