Inside the Guide

It’s no secret that employees are on social media. In fact, the average person spends about 2 hours each day on social networking sites. That’s more time than they spend eating, socializing—even grooming. People are making decisions on the go, connecting to information—and each other—whenever they need to, from wherever they are. Social media lets you reach more people more frequently, in ways they’re likely to read and engage with right away. It’s an especially powerful tool when it comes to organizations that have a significant number of remote and non-desk employees. Plus, it’s a low-cost way to educate and influence your employees and their families in real time without exhausting internal resources. As social media usage continues to rise, benefits teams have fewer obstacles and more incentive to get started.
