With the new generations like Generation Y and the Millennials beginning to enter the work force, social media usage in a company has become a more popular trend. Companies can boost their employees morale and work ethic by having a company Facebook page or Twitter account that is exclusive to all the employees, where they can read about upcoming events, meeting, deadlines etc.
The newer generations are all about tech savvy trends. Most, if not the majority, will not want to read a bulletin board in the office about events but rather something on social media. Creating social media accounts makes information easy to access from anywhere and if someone is away from work, they can still be kept in the loop.
This will increase employee morale because they can share feedback about work-related terms and not have to feel the pressure of being intimidated by other workers. Also, it will become a daily routine to check for deadline updates and then everyone in the office knows when things are to be done by, possibly eliminating the issue of miscommunication.
Social media accounts allow people to express concerns with the company in a positive way, be more productive regarding when things are due, sidestep miscommunication, and, if sick from work, to avoid stressing about their cold
because they can’t make it in. Therefore companies should use social media accounts to create a less stressful environment and increase employee morale.
