Social Media Training Can Help Manage Your Business

Posted by Nisha Amin on Apr 13, 2017 2:30:00 PM

TIPS FROM YOUR TRAINING COMPANY

There is no doubt that technology has significantly evolved over the last few years, from smartphones to tablets, and social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter.

When social media first started becoming popular, it seemed to be just a “fad” among the younger crowd, and people definitely were not considering using social media for business. Since then, social media has exploded and has become part of our daily lives.

Although this cohort has a number of unique work related characteristics, one that is by far the most frustrating is the lack of loyalty resulting in turnover. 

At first I have to admit, I was quite narrow-minded, concluding that Millennials simply did not have intentions to stick around once they secured a position, and were consistently looking for the next best thing in the meantime.
