How to Train Your Employees On Social Media
It’s happened, it’s here and it’s not going away.
Social media cannot be avoided by putting the organisational head in the sand any longer. It is a pervasive part of the world in which we live and operate.
Equally we cannot realistically afford to hire huge teams to manage this for us. Sure we need to manage the “problems” as they occur, but we also need advocates. And the best advocates we have available are those already choosing to work for us.
Blocking such sites is sheer folly, as our people will be on those sites anyway. On the way to work, during breaks and of course outside of work hours.
We need leverage with potential customers – that leverage can come from a significant engaged team already in the business.
Collaboration skills development
As a bonus, being involved “officially” and having some training also starts the process – or in some cases restarts the process of internal collaboration – the new way of working for effective performance and productivity.
