Social media and employee engagement


   Next month (19th March, 2010), I’ll be moderating one of the sessions at Justmeans’ Social Media and Stakeholder Engagement conference in London:

Empowering Employees

Social media can inspire employees and generate new ideas when it is used as a collaboration tool.  Communication is no longer limited to a one-way delivery of information; organisations are participating in two-way dialogues and using social media to engage employees in innovative ways. How do you engage employees, create a shared vision, increase productivity and derive benefits from increased employee engagement? Many companies are increasingly concerned about the risks of social media and are reluctant to introduce it into their organisations.  How do you introduce and embrace the utilization of social media with proper planning and guidelines to ensure success and employee advocates?


Speakers for the session will include Tim Johns, VP Corporate Communications at Unilever and Ed Gillespie, Co-Founder of Futerra.

Should be fun!  Come along if you can.  You can book here or for more information, please contact Serina Mufti at [email protected] or +44 (0) 203 238 2121.

And let me know if you’ll be there, or at least ensure you come over and say hello!
