Ericsson: Employee Advocacy Success at Scale

March 16, 2017

With over 110,000 employees in 180 countries, Ericsson is a leader in the networking and telecommunications industries. Much of the brand’s success is due to their legacy of hiring and retaining top talent around the world. Their communications and HR teams wanted to find an easy but impactful way to help their employees build their own personal brands on social media to highlight their industry expertise and leadership.

Across Ericsson, there were already a few different types of employee advocacy and social media programs in place. They knew they needed to aggregate the many different programs into one place where employees could more easily access company news, announcements, and job listings from a singular destination. This would keep their employees more informed and engaged, a top priority for the company.

Sonia Boije and Lisa Smith-Strother from Ericsson explore topics such as:

  • How to launch and scale an employee advocacy program
  • How to aggregate multiple channels & create a single employee advocacy destination
  • How to educate and train a diverse workforce on social media and thought leadership
  • How to sustain engagement as well as recognize and reward employee advocates
