Want to know what’s working for the savviest of HR practitioners on the social media front? (Or at least want to avoid starring in a future anecdote about something gone terribly awry?)

Want to learn surefire (and bestselling) motivational tactics for engaging employees at all levels? (Something with more science baked into it than your homemade “Work Hard Or Else!” posters?)

Over the next few days, some of the best and brightest minds lighting up the hourly hiring space are converging on Williamsburg, Va., for Hire Minds, the annual Snagajob Hourly Hiring Summit. We meet up each year to relax, refresh and recharge – all in the name of building better workplaces.

We’re playing host to speakers including “The Carrot Principle” author Chester Elton, upstartHR blogger Ben Eubanks and Snagajob Founder and CEO Shawn Boyer  – all of whom are offering their unique take on how hiring, motivating and connecting with right-fit workers can boost your bottom line.

We welcome you to follow us and join the conversation on Twitter @MeetHireMinds and at the hashtag #HireMinds11 over the next three days as we extract and share the highlighted expertise from our speakers and attendees.
