Resistance to change and lack of social media understanding among senior leaders is stifling innovation and transparency in organisations, according to research by CIPD.

    Would much rather use social media as a mechanism with which to engage staff than have a remote and old world leadership team attempt to manage staff engaged with social media in the form of time theft! For me, a no brainer!

    Agree with all the points stated, I wouldn't have been reading this had it been an email :)

    I'd almost always prefer to read a blog or a video message from my CEO just for that human connect. You just know that the email was written by some Internal communications staff with an e-signature of our leader, well I think the Social signature with an avatar is way more powerful.
