How Vodafone Activates & Inspires Their Employees as Advocates

April 11, 2017

Vodafone is a multinational telecommunications company, headquartered in the UK, with thousands of employees and millions of customers across the globe. As they sought to activate advocates around the business, they began looking for ways to empower their employees to share company content on social media. After conducting an internal survey, they discovered that the majority of employees wanted to share more about the company on social media, but were uncertain about what content they could share and what was acceptable to broadcast on social media. 

The External Communications team at Vodafone UK needed a solution that would allow them to provide employees with a single destination where they could access and share company news and content. In 18 months, their program has expanded to almost 2,000 employees, who have shared over 50,000 pieces of content, driving over 30,000,000 impressions for the company.

Kimberley Harcombe and Emma Cook explore topics such as: 

  • What you need to know to launch an employee advocacy program
  • How to identify, activate and mentor employee advocates 
  • What it takes to sustain program engagement to ensure long-term growth
  • How to measure success and evolve your program over time
