Social media - not just for external communication
October 26, 2016
Social media is a broad term referring to applications allowing users to create and share content or participate in social networking. This can affect communications among managers and employees, and how businesses promote and control their reputation.
Research published earlier this year has shown that a mere one in six employers are using social media to connect with their staff and only 55% have a social media presence at all.
The ACAS (Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service) research has revealed that this is a result of such companies being worried that it will be used in the wrong way, for example it may lead to inappropriate conversations between employees or the social media platforms may be used incorrectly i.e. for non-work related purposes.
However, social media is growing at an increasingly fast rate and can be an incredibly useful tool, especially when it comes to platforms such as Twitter and LinkedIn, for businesses to establish their brands and build business relations.
We offer bespoke workshops and training sessions on how best to use social media for business. We can provide advice on social media protocols and show businesses how to encourage its use for positive purposes.
