hearing about it from someone they trust. Hence trust is essential for business and it has also become a new marketing currency in today’s digital world.
Digital-Savvy Employees are the biggest marketing assets & trusted brand advocates
Engaged and digital-savvy employees are the best word-of-mouth marketing resource. It’s one of the most cost-effective way of marketing that brings enormous benefits in
the long run.

communities. This in turn will position them as an ‘Industry Thought Leader’ and also continuously encourage them to build their personal brand online.
