For most HR professionals, using LinkedIn is now part of their daily routine. With over 1 million members in Hong Kong alone, the platform can be a powerful networking and recruitment tool. Yet some individuals use it more successfully than others. To showcase that, LinkedIn has released a list of HR Power Profiles, this year’s 13 most viewed profiles in the industry.
Shubhro Mitra, regional chief human resources officer at AXA Asia, is featured on the list. He explains that having a powerful LinkedIn profile is more than just a personal calling card, and can even help attract talent.
“A company’s employees can be powerful employer brand advocates on LinkedIn, and we encourage our members to keep their profiles up to date. In setting an example, I help boost our brand and leave the door open for great new employees to get in touch”, he said in a press release.
To compile the list of 2016 Power Profiles, LinkedIn used member data from 2015-2016. LinkedIn employees were excluded.
