The corporate messaging tool DeskAlerts has revealed the results of its latest studies into corporate communication channels. In its most recent industry survey, it has discovered that social media is now an intrinsic part of corporate activities and a vital cog in the internal communications process.
In its study, DeskAlerts’ communication experts found organizations and employees held an overwhelmingly positive view of social media with the majority classing it as a sign of innovation. 60% of employees were found to associate corporate internal social media with innovations. The DeskAlerts team were able to conclude that internal social media aided collaboration – with 61% of employees surveyed agreeing with this sentiment. Social media was also deemed to be more engaging with a further 58% of employees admitting that they would rather work at a company using social media than one that did not employee the medium.
With DeskAlerts social media tools, users are able to deliver information of any kind to employees using multiple channels. This includes social media assets such as WordPress blogs, Twitter and LinkedIn, all in one click. The DeskAlerts tool is managed online centrally from a single interface and can be used to send a range of content types to employees with recipients addressed either individually or organized in groups.
The positive facets of social media and the sense that it is now indispensable from an internal corporate communications perspective builds on a recent infographic published by DeskAlerts last month. Entitled 3 Reasons Not To Ignore Twitter’ the infographic provided a succinct breakdown of the advantages to be gained by tweeting and gave the first insight into just how powerful a tool social media sites can be from a communication and engagement perspective.
Anton Vdovin, Project Manager at DeskAlerts said, “It’s fascinating that social media has moved on from being a social tool into an essential corporate asset. What’s also surprising is that over half of all employees see internal social media as being an important part of their work environment with 60% also regarding their employers as being innovative for embracing the medium.
