Social Media and Digital Engagement


call for new tag members

Our Social Media and Digital Engagement Thought & Action Group is currently looking for new members to take things forward.

The Social Media TAG is currently on hiatus.

Back in 2014 EFS recognised there was a gap in the resources we provided on the website around the use of digital tools, including social media to improve engagement in the workplace. It seemed we struck a chord with organisations searching for (and struggling to find) evidence and practical advice on new approaches and digital solutions that worked for them. EFS co-founder David MacLeod described the need for a ‘bridge’ – between experts who live and breathe digital, and those who can see the potential, but are unsure where to begin.

Led by John Smythe, the TAG kicked off with a practical working group of interested professionals (experts and learners!) from a range of backgrounds, including the private, public and not-for-profit sector to:

  • to become a ‘go-to’ resource and network for thought leadership, knowledge, experience and insight about the use of social media and digital for employee engagement
  • to achieve this by collating and sign-posting the wealth of existing resources in this space, making them readily accessible and relevant for our audience, as well as providing practical advice
  • to normalise the use of social media and digital across the private, public and not-for-profit sector practice for employee engagement

By January 2019, a number of resources had been developed and are now available below. Numbers in the TAG had unfortunately dropped because of other commitments so it was decided to pause the activities of the group.

The good news is that it can be rebooted at any time so if you may be interested in helping to do so – or simply to find out a bit more – please get in touch:
