  7. 7. WHAT IS BRAND JOURNALISM? “Brand journalism is when any organization creates valuable information and shares it with the world. Brand journalism is not a product pitch. It is not an advertorial. It is not an egotistical spewing of gobbledygook-laden corporate drivel. Instead, brand journalism is the creation of Web content — videos, blog posts, photos, charts, graphs, essays, e-books, white papers — that deliver value to your marketplace and serve to position your organization as one worthy of doing business with.” DAVID MEERMAN SCOTT, 2010 #INFLUENCEHR
  8. 8. WHAT IS BRAND JOURNALISM? “Brands will resemble publishers and assemble newsrooms and hire or train journalists who can tell stories and contribute to major publications.” MICHAEL BRENNER, SAP #INFLUENCEHR

It’s round three of tweaking the budget to meet my CFO’s ‘cut 6%’ order, so I’m meeting with my team to prioritize our activities. Because benefits enrollment is only a few weeks away, I’ve got to finish the employee dependent audit sooner rather than later. Preferably before the OFCP charge deposition next week. To top it off, I’ve just been pinged to support the cross-functional planning committee in charge of the company holiday party, and the twelfth person today just knocked on my door asking if I ‘had a minute.’ Hopefully, it doesn’t run too long because my youngest has a basketball game tonight.” #INFLUENCEHR
