Develop an Employee Ambassador Program

Harness the power of your employee voice on social media to reflect your most authentic organizational culture, build a strong employer brand, and attract top candidates.

Onsite Workshop

Not fully leveraging the employee voice on social media to effectively promote your employer brand will:

  • Leave organizations out of online conversations that are already happening – 50% of employees post messages, pictures, or videos about their employer on social media and 33% of them do so without any encouragement from their employer.
  • Limit organization’s reach – employees have 10x more social connections than a brand does and content shared by employees receives 8x more online engagement than content shared on corporate accounts.
  • Limit the effectiveness of the organization’s promotion of itself – word of mouth is the most effective form of marketing and socially engaged employees are 58% more likely to attract new talent than recruiters.

Promoting the employer brand with an employee ambassador program:

  • Provides organizations with valuable employee feedback, helping them address any gaps in their EVP.
  • Empowers employees and increases employee engagement – employees of socially engaged organizations are 27% more likely to feel optimistic about the future of their organization and are 20% more likely to stay with their organization.
  • Positively impacts the organization’s bottom line and socially engaged organizations decrease their cost per hire.
