Think your employees would recommend your company or its products? Think again. A recent study by Advertising Age reveals that only 27% of employees would recommend its products or services. Worse, almost twice that amount, 49%, are actually company detractors.
As for blocking employee access to social media, the survey found that active social media participants are likely to support the company 48% of the time with far less (only 22%) likely detractors.
With a 78% likelihood that your social media savvy employees would not speak poorly of the company, it pays (literally) to let, no, to help your employees be your best ambassadors in the social media space.
