Following are the 4 tips to leverage employee advocacy tools to optimize your employer brand:
Review the Content Before Sharing: Compose a crisp and engaging content that people can share on the employee advocacy tools. It should showcase your culture, vision, mission, and company perspective on current trends. Potential candidates understand that employees share the same objectives as the company which improves your employer reputation.
Measure Performance of the Content: Use metrics to figure out how the shared content for your brand influenced social media. Create and modify content based on how the audience interacts with the content on social media platforms.
Implement Gamification: Hosting a contest on maximum shares will not be that effective as employees might share irrelevant content to win it. Calculate and reward actions to enhance your employer brand based on the engagement rate.
Allow Employees to Share Their Thoughts: Encourage employees to share the experience they want to put across. This will showcase their engagement and how they resonate with the company values on a personal level. It also gives an objective perspective and diversity to the content you want to share for your brand.
