Allowing all staff to post on your Engage Colleague social feed can seem like a daunting prospect, but it’s also one of the most effective ways to drive engagement.

Here’s why:

  1. Encourages Communication: Giving your employees the ability to post socially on our platform allows them to feel heard and valued. This open communication channel facilitates dialogues and strengthens the relationship between your team and the organisation. Our platform also has moderation and filtering features to ensure a safe and respectful communication environment.
  2. Fosters Community: When employees can share their thoughts, achievements or ask questions. It can significantly enhance the sense of community within your organisation. Community building is even more crucial for remote teams or larger organisations where employees may only occasionally interact face-to-face.
  3. Promotes Knowledge Sharing: Your employees possess a wealth of knowledge and expertise. By allowing social posting, you encourage shared learning and continuous improvement. Employees can share best practices, learn from each other’s experiences, and foster a culture of innovation.
  4. Boosts Recognition and Motivation: Social posts offer a platform for recognising achievements, whether big or small, leading to a greater sense of employee appreciation and motivation. It is about celebrating all wins – finding joy in the everyday. It allows employees to celebrate successes and milestones, making them feel valued for their contributions.
  5. Enhances Transparency: Allowing all staff to post can lead to increased transparency within the organisation. Employees can express their ideas and concerns, managers can share updates and information, and everyone can engage in the conversation.
