Are you an assistant who rises above the call of duty and incorporates the latest business trends into your daily routine?
If you answered yes, then you are more than likely exploring ways to immerse social media into the office and blend it with the current resources you already have.
Where do you start and how do you successfully launch social media so those in your office will applaud you for your efforts? First become attuned to social media in the workplace and how it impacts daily communication. Then become familiar with effectively managing online engagement and the importance of a social media policy. And if your office does not have a social media policy, then suggest that one be created and adopted by all employees — Coca Cola provides a guide on participating in social media, both personally as well as when you are acting in an official capacity.
