Profile: As Abila’s Vice President of Sales, Chris Wicker, is responsible for all revenue generation and growth initiatives for direct clients and valued channel partners. Chris’ leadership joined with his significant experience in the software industry is built on a people first foundation. Chris has led several organizations to record performances, but believes that traditional sales and business development strategies are not the key to success. As a leader, he believes that aligning and positioning team members for success will fuel passion to help clients achieve their goals. Before joining Abila in 2012, Chris was central sales director for Monster, and prior to that he was managing director of sales (for central U.S.) for Careerbuilder. In both of these roles he drove sales initiatives around social recruitment and successfully used social strategies for employee engagement and recruitment designed for a social world.

At the Nonprofit HR Conference, Chris will present on employee engagement. Did you know that employees who can keep up with social media at work are happier and more motivated? Putting social technologies to use in your organization can improve employee engagement, foster collaboration and help advance your mission. As social media becomes the norm, it’s time to prepare and protect your organization by setting a realistic social media policy. In this session we will talk about why HR needs to understand and engage in social media. We will explore what’s ok (and not ok) to say on behalf of your organization, and we will discuss how to handle unforeseen social foul-ups by reviewing lessons learned from other organizations. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of social media, the knowledge to begin the process of creating a social policy and actionable tips for tapping into the talent, energy, creativity and enthusiasm of your employees.
