Employees Rising: Seizing the Opportunity in Employee Activism
12:00pm Registration / Networking 12:25pm Lunch 1:10pm Remarks 2:00pm Close
Join us for this informative luncheon as Dr. Leslie Gaines-Ross, Chief Reputation Strategist, Weber Shandwick presents research taken from an online survey of 2,300 employees covering 15 markets worldwide. The study explores the employee activist movement to help organisations understand what it takes to catch the rising tide of employee activism.
About the Research
Weber Shandwick reveals a rising social movement ignited by the digital and social media era – employee activism.
Employee activists draw visibility to their workplace, defend their employers from criticism and act as advocates, both online and off. One in five employees (21%) is estimated to be an employee activist, and another 33% have high potential to be employee activists. As the movement grows at an increasing speed, employers have an enormous opportunity to engage and capitalise on these powerful advocates, or risk missing out on an important group of supporters and, at worst, fail to curtail detractors who have the potential to upend company reputations.
