The jobseekers’ voice: take our employer branding survey and raise money for charity

Are you looking for jobs or career information on Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter, maybe from mobile? How do you rate how companies present themselves? What influence do corporate sustainability, compensation or benefits have on your career choices? How do you prefer to make an application?


These are just some of the questions we’re putting to jobseekers in our latest annual survey. The exercise is part of this year’s 19th edition of Webranking, a study conducted by Swedish consultancy Comprend in collaboration with Lundquist into the corporate online communications of the largest 500 companies in Europe. Rather than judging them on subjective criteria, we base our assessments on stakeholders’ needs captured in three online surveys: one for the capital markets, one for web managers and one about careers, aimed at students, young and experienced professionals.


For every reply, Comprend donates 5€ to charity.

La comunicazione corporate incontra Periscope. Ne parliamo con Banca Ifis ed Edison

Meerkat-&-PeriscopeIn poco più di un mese grazie ad un piccolo mammifero e uno strumento usato per la prima volta circa 600 anni fa siamo entrati in pieno clima da “next big thing” promotori e cauti osservatori compresi. Meerkat (suricato in italiano) e Periscope sono infatti i nomi di due applicazioni che consentono di fare live streaming da smartphone e a cui le aziende, neanche troppo timidamente, strizzano l’occhio.


Per comprendere dall’interno come alcune società stiano costruendo qualcosa testando questi canali abbiamo parlato con Mara Di Giorgio, Responsabile comunicazione del Gruppo Banca Ifis e Florian Ciornei, Responsabile comunicazione digitale di Edison.

Deutsche Post DHL’s secret to success in digital: a clear vision

Michael-Sellen - Interview - Deutsche-Post - CSR-Online-Awards-2014Companies need a clear vision of what they want to achieve on in digital channels and social media. Very often, digital managers focus on specific metrics, such as likes or followers in social media, which are important but don’t reflect engagement. Michael Sellen, Head of Internet, eMedia Team at Deutsche Post DHL, says companies need to create a framework aligning content creation and content distribution.


Moreover using social media channels as an integral part of stakeholder engagement offers companies the possibility to be part of a dialogue and even manage it: people now expect companies to be active on social media and it’s a risk for a company not taking part of this conversation.

Wikipedia & business: why should you care and what you can do legitimately

Wikipedia logoWikipedia is important for companies. So what stops them from engaging fully and how can a relationship work between business and the Wikipedia community?


Wikipedia is the 6th most visited and consulted website on the web, the 7th in Italy (ahead of the country’s two most popular newspapers la Repubblica and Corriere della Sera). Eight times out of 10 Wikipedia-related entries end up in the first results page on Google.


There is more. 

Tips from Siemens on engaging people through corporate storytelling

Tobias Dennehy - Interview - Siemens - CSR Online Awards 2014“Through good storytelling, companies will enable conversations in social media much better than through facts or corporate messages,” says Tobias Dennehy, Corporate Story Architect & Editorial Change Manager at Siemens, summarising his talk at our CSR event in Milan.


This is not an easy process, he added. Companies are best off not telling their messages directly, but through others… through their stories. With so many messages and so many challenges out there, the most important question becomes: “What can we do not to be boring?” Dennehy explains why it’s critical to find an entertaining story of some person that your audience can relate to.
