How SAS Makes Social Media Practical for Employees

December 13, 2016

Founded in 1976, software company SAS is made up of a wide array of global employees of all ages. In a recent survey nearly half of them responded in overwhelming fashion, asking for more training on social media. Their hope: to better utilize social networks for business purposes, using an authentic voice.

In response, SAS launched “The 140,” its unique take on employee advocacy. The training-heavy, platform-light program coaches a cross-section of employees (not just from Sales and Marketing) on everything from personal brand building to how to deal with internet trolls. Topics are sourced from participants and actively adjust the focus off SAS, to the SAS employee.

Alli Soule, Social Media Employee Engagement & Education Specialist, and Brandy Mann, Social Media Web & Blog Specialist, from SAS discuss:

  • How to establish goals for your program and ensure company leadership is supportive
  • How to onboard and train employees to ensure grassroots adoption of the program
  • How to align employee advocacy with existing resources and initiatives
  • How to evaluate success and determine ROI

SAS, a leader in business analytics software and services, helps organizations across all industries realize the full potential of their greatest asset: data. Used at more than 50,000 sites in over 100 countries, SAS allows you to transform data about customers, performance, and financials into solid and coherent decisions.
