Your employees have a vested interest in your
company’s success. They will be your most
committed and enthusiastic ambassadors. Providing
them the opportunity and support to be visible
spokespeople on behalf of your brand drives
employee engagement, inspires collaboration and
improves customer experiences.

We are all now media companies and need to think like
We need to know each channel and what works best.
We need to dedicate resources to creating visuals and micro-
videos and collecting stories.
The shift to paid has already happened. It’s time to embrace that
The only constant is change.
