Engaged employees are more productive, have longer tenure and are enthusiastic to be brand advocates for their companies. It should come as no surprise that companies with highly engaged employees outperform those with low employee engagement by up to 200%. That’s why EA is powering employees to become brand advocates to increase employee engagement, amplify the brand’s message, and increase awareness.

Register for this webinar to learn:
· How EA is transforming employees into brand advocates to establish a sense of community, pride and engagement

· How engaged employees can increase awareness, social engagement and talent acquisition
