Learn how EMC tackled the challenge of creating an employee platform using social media and leverage their internal brand and culture.


Using Social Networks to Build an Internal Brand:

Hear first hand how EM

  • Transformed internal branding and employee engagement while reducing costs and improving effectiveness
  • Drove culture change and built a social/business collaboration among employees
  • Established brand presence on emerging social platforms
  • Built relationships internally on a personal reference level
  • Influenced of purchasing decisions in all markets
  • Provided early warning system for negative and positive opportunities
  • Provided market intelligence and barriers to entry from competitive threats
  • Demonstration of the EMC brand in action
Social media applications are being deployed within corporate cultures as a medium to facilitate effective change/communications to the same degree that Facebook and LinkedIn are having an impact on consumer community building. Corporate social media is now being used to unify, and establish collaboration, create innovation, solve global client problems, establish corporate standards across large multinational corporations and the list goes on and on. In my opinion, one of the BEST I have come across is Global/One @EMC

Here are a few poignant examples of how EMC's Global/One Social Community has made a difference.

  • Their goal was to build relationships on a one-to one "personal reference" level amongst staff and the corporation with virtually zero-budget toward branding.
  • Over the last three years it has become the driving force behind a cultural shift in a collaborative environment that is spurring innovation, global collaboration and solutions that solve client's problems.
  • It has created social media "rock stars" within the company who are becoming recognized leaders for their blog writings as the go-to opinion leaders who people respect and follow for their thoughtful ideas and inspiration.

This exclusive presentation as our way to bring the best and smartest best practices to our friends and clients and to start the year off with a positive learning experience.
