Abstract:Background: This paper is focused on the usage of social networking sites (SNS) for human resources departments in the process of hiring new employees. It also maps the development and influence of SNS on recruiter's behavior and customs. The main aim is to find out, whether SNS could/will replace traditional online job boards in the Czech Republic. The motivation for the research is to determine whether SNS can be used for serious and practical business purposes. Methods: The paper presents authors’ empirical research with two interconnected instruments used for data collection: (1) Questionnaire with 15 questions devoted to usability, evaluation and comparison of SNS with job portals (N=286 HR specialists) and (2) Comparison of 3 online job advertising methods – job portals, SNS and business website. Results: HR specialists regularly use publicly available information on candidates’ Facebook profiles. Similar results have been observed using both instruments. SNS's in the Czech Republic are not yet used by recruiters as the main tool for recruitment, however, are often used as a support tool for decision making in the final stage of recruitment. Use of SNS's by recruiters is universal; we have not found any significant differences in terms of demographics (men, women, old, young HR professionals). The rate of utilization of SNS's by recruiters in the Czech Republic is gradually increasing, but does not reach the US level. Conclusion: Our findings confirm the rising importance of social networking sites (SNS) usage as a new recruiting technology. However, as a major player in the field of recruitment, job boards (eg. Jobs.cz) are still important. However, the expectation is that in the near future, this will change and SNS‘s may replace the job boards.

Title:Vpliv informacij s spletnih družbenih omrežij na zaposlovanje v Češki republiki
Abstract:Ozadje: Članek obravnava proces zaposlovanja v kadrovskih oddelkih z uporabo spletnih družbenih omrežij. Ravno tako izpostavlja razvoj in vpliv spletnih družbenih omrežij na vedenje in navade kandidatov za zaposlitev. Glavni cilj je bil ugotoviti, ali spletna družbena omrežja lahko nadomestijo tradicionalne spletne portale na Češkem. Vodilo raziskave je bilo ugotoviti, ali spletna družbena omrežja lahko uporabljamo za resne in praktične poslovne namene. Metode: V članku je predstavljena empirična raziskava, kjer smo uporabili dva med seboj povezana instrumenta za zbiranje podatkov: (1) vprašalnik s 15 vprašanji v zvezi z uporabnostjo, koristnostjo in primerjavo družabnih omrežij s zaposlitvenimi portali (N = 286 kadrovskih strokovnjakov) in (2) primerjava treh spletnih metod oglaševanja: zaposlitvenih portalov, družab­nih omrežij in poslovnih spletnih strani. Rezultati: Kadrovski strokovnjaki redno uporabljajo javno dostopne informacije kandidatov, ki jih najdejo n.pr. na Facebook profilih. Podobne rezultate smo dobili z uporabo obeh instrumentov. Družbena omrežja na Češkem še niso glavno orodje pri izbiri kandidatov za zaposlitev, se pa pogosto uporabljajo kot pomoč pri odločitvah o zaposlitvi kandidatov, predvsem v končni fazi postopka zaposlovanja. Uporaba družbenih omrežij pri kadrovanju je splošna; nismo ugotovili pomembnih razlik v smislu demografije (moški, ženske, starejši, mladi strokovnjaki). Kadroviki v Češki republiki vse več uporabljajo družbena omrežja, vendar uporaba ne dosega ravni Združenih držav Amerike. Zaključek: Naše ugotovitve potrjujejo, da narašča pomen socialnih omrežij kot ene novih tehnologij pri zaposlovanju. Vendar glavni akterji na področju zaposlovanja, zaposlitveni portali (n.pr. Jobs.cz) še vedno ostajajo pomembni. Pričakovati pa je, da se v bodoče to lahko spremeni, da bodo družbena omrežja nadomestila zaposlitvene portale.
