Employee Social Media Platform: Build a Great Workplace Culture and Promote Advocacy
Employee Social Media Platform: Build a Great Workplace Culture and Promote Advocacy
Harness the Power of Social Media in the Workplace
There is no doubt that social media and technology have influenced how we work, live, and even sleep. Employees, especially younger generations, are more likely to photo document EVERYTHING and comment about it on social media. These posts can be good or bad for your company, depending on the post. The overall goal is to receive as much employee advocacy as possible on these platforms. HubEngage makes it possible for you to integrate company social media and employee social media to pursue a great workplace culture and employee advocacy.
An employee social media platform is a digital tool that allows companies to connect their employees through different social networks and social media sites. These platforms allow employees to share information, collaborate on projects, and communicate with one another, regardless of location. Social networking sites such as Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Facebook Workplace are popular examples of employee social media platforms.
Employee social media platforms offer a variety of features, such as the ability to create and join groups, share documents, and participate in discussions. Some platforms also offer collaboration tools, such as video conferencing, screen sharing, and instant messaging. These tools can increase productivity, as well as improve communication and teamwork among employees.
Overall, an employee social media platform is a valuable tool for any company looking to improve employee engagement and collaboration. By providing a social platform for employees to connect and communicate, companies can create a more connected and engaged workforce. Social networks provide a great way for employees to stay connected and engaged, regardless of location. Employees can use the social networks to share information, collaborate on projects, and communicate with one another.
The social environment is built for enterprises. Enable a social platform for all or a specific segment of employees to share and interact with the controls required to enforce enterprise policy.
HubEngage solutions make it possible for employees to share updates, videos, and other media with emojis, hashtags, tagging, and other social media options to increase engagement.
You have the ability to control social channels. Create private and public channels where employees can interact on specific topics with or without the public view. As the administrator, you have control over the social media platform.
Overall, you want the social media platform to be fun. You can make commenting and posting fun by enabling likes, comments, and sharing. Gamify with points and rewards motivate employees to participate in social engagement.
HubEngage brings a powerful search engine to the platform. You can easily search users, hashtags, keywords, and more with quick results.
Employees can be notified through push notifications and reminders when they engage with a post. They can also be alerted to prominent posts. You can enable automated campaigns that allow you to send periodic push notifications about missed posts.
Use the HubEngage analyze feature to see the data on who is active on the social media platform and the sentiment of the employees.
Why is Employee Advocacy Important For Your Company?
In case you hadn’t noticed, social media makes a large impact on the opinions of the masses. If you have employees who are not advocating through the social media platform, you are missing exposure. You want to receive positive attention, obviously, but the best posts come from those who work for you – or customers who have purchased your goods or service.
Without the positive exposure through social media, you may not get the interest you need from the target audience you are trying to reach. That means your marketing suffers, making it a little harder (not impossible) to get the word out about your business.
Using HubEngage’s Employee Social Media Platform / App for Engagement
The more engaged your employees are, the happier they tend to be. Employees want to have a voice in the workplace, and what better place for them to have a voice than on a social media platform. Social media is also a great conduit for recognition. Peers and management can post about employees who are going above and beyond.
You can see that most of the HubEngage products work together to create a total picture. Subscribe to one or all of the products, make them work to your advantage – just like you can make the social media platform work to your marketing advantage.

“HubEngage is always looking for the cutting edge things to do, are open to every idea, and are ready to implement in the next couple weeks or months. The customization is nice to have. We have a great personal relationship with a quick response rate for any issue.”

“If any company should invest in any app, it should be this one, HubEngage.”
We know that each associate can have a huge impact on the overall guest experience and ultimately on the property’s bottom line. Regular users of the app have better cultural awareness and help to drive hotel profitability. After all, happy, engaged team members create happy, engaged guests and a healthy bottom line.
We are 50 hotels mostly up and down the east coast and rapidly expanding across the US. Our challenge was that, when you are spread out over 50 locations and counting, it doesn’t really feel like much of a team. So, we were specifically looking for something that could bring everyone together and connect everyone so that they could feel more like a team. We did a lot of research on the available options and HubEngage topped our list. HubEngage makes connectivity within the organization at your fingertips.
Our employees just love to share their pictures, videos, and other content on the HubEngage social platform. And the administrators are particularly happy to about the document-sharing feature. Of all the apps we have in the company, we have never had such an amazing response for any as we do for HubEngage. Whenever a question is asked on the platform, we get an answer in minutes.
And the best part, anytime we needed something done or had a request, HubEngage was there for us literally handholding us through the process.

The back-end provides easy access for countless tasks, and their client service for any “out of the box” ideas we come up with is fantastic.

“The HubEngage app has been a wonderful engagement tool for Pengate.”
Not only is the employee engagement app easy to navigate, but it’s also easy to measure the results of our initiatives and goals via the comprehensive reporting dashboard.

“The HubEngage employee app drives engagement, satisfaction, and hopefully retention as well.”
Our native HubEngage app is called "MyESA". Using it, our associates are learning more about the company they work for and how they can grow as part of it. Now employees feel more connected with the company and are able to understand the big reach of the business as a whole.
This app also allows each of our associates to be Brand Ambassador for Extended Stay America and is a great tool that is helping us attract new associates consistently. We particularly love the idea that the app allows us to send different content to different people in the organization according to their roles and hierarchy.
The platform is helping us tremendously in terms of seeing employees recognize each other and participate in each other's success and celebrations.
