Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 3, 2010
Facebook provides UGL Unicco with a more casual path to foster conversations with constituents. It uses the Facebook presence to convey company news, information about its local community involvement and facilities management events, tradeshows, Web events, employee accomplishments and other company happenings with a wider universe.
The Facebook presence also offers an opportunity for the company to promote sustainable facilities management - a key corporate theme centered on green cleaning and energy management. It serves as a conduit to connect interested people with industry resources, such as the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for information on sustainability initiatives, and as a forum for facilities managers to share ideas.
"Facebook lets us interact with audiences in a new way," commented UGL Unicco Vice President of Marketing George Lohnes. "Social media is tremendously relevant to many of our customers, stakeholders and the public, and we are interested in participating in an ongoing dialog with them through this medium. We see it not only as an opportunity to share timely information, but also as a way to keep in touch with developing trends."
