10 Employee Engagement Platforms We Love

Employee Engagement Platforms

Engaged workforces tend to operate more efficiently and have lower employee turnover.

However, keeping employees engaged is challenging as you can't force employees to have meaningful conversations with each other.

Fortunately, plenty of employee engagement platforms can positively stimulate engagement by making communication fun and rewarding.

Below are a few of our favorite employee engagement platforms that improve internal communication and overall employee satisfaction for a happier and more productive workplace.

1. GaggleAMP

Employee advocacy is when employees share company content with their social media networks. It's a powerful content promotion strategy as the reach of your employees' combined networks often equates to the network size of several influencers.

It's also a great way to keep employees up-to-date with your brand's latest goals and achievements.

However, many employee advocacy programs fail because managers can't keep employees engaged.

We quickly learned that the key to improving overall employee engagement is to reduce the effort required by employees.

The best method to do this is to provide very specific employee engagement instructions to eliminate questions like:

  • Which piece of content should I engage with?
  • What am I allowed to say?
  • How often should I engage?
  • Which social media platforms should I engage on?

GaggleAMP is an employee advocacy platform that solves these problems by allowing managers to assign personalized employee engagement activities at scale.

You can select an engagement activity and then add specific instructions like the exact social media post employees should engage with and how to engage with it (e.g., like, comment, share).

Then, you can assign it to specific employees or groups of employees.

Those employees then receive a personalized list of engagement activities they can complete in their Gaggle.

Here's a more detailed overview of how it works.

Step 1: Select an Engagement Activity

To get started, select a specific engagement activity. GaggleAMP offers custom engagement activities (like, comment, share, etc.) for all mainstream social media platforms.

You can see how this already clarifies exactly how you want employees to engage.

Step 2: Add Details to the Engagement Activity

Next, you can add specific details to the engagement activity, like a few sentences telling employees what you’d like them to say and an expiration date (so that employees are never overwhelmed by a backlog of dated activities).

GaggleAmp Question Activity for LinkedIn

An example of a GaggleAMP Question Activity where the Members response

becomes the content on the post on LinkedIn.

This way, employees know:

  • Which social media platform to engage on.
  • Which post to engage with.
  • The engagement action they should perform (like, reshare, comment, etc.).
  • Guidance on what they should say.
  • The date by which they should complete the activity.

As you can see, this reduces the guesswork for employees and makes engaging with your brand very straightforward.

Step 3: Assign Engagement Activities to Employees

To ensure each employee engages with relevant content, you can assign engagement activities to groups of employees (e.g., the sales team, executive team, etc.).

Or, you can assign an engagement activity to a specific employee.


Step 4: Employees Complete the Engagement Activities

Once you assign an engagement activity, your employees receive a notification (via Slack or email) that they have new activities waiting.

They can click the notification link to visit their personal Gaggle portal. Inside the portal, they'll see the engagement activities you've assigned along with your specific instructions (e.g, the social media post, the platform, the engagement action, an expiration date, etc.).

Organic Social Media - Things to Do

Employees can complete the engagement activities directly inside their Gaggle and even schedule them to publish at a future date/time.

This makes it easy for employees to complete all of their engagement activities in one sitting, so they only have to devote 10-15 minutes per week to employee advocacy. As a result, they're much more likely to engage consistently.


Step 5: Track Employee Engagement and Analytics

GaggleAMP makes it super easy to track your employees' engagement and your overall employee advocacy program's impact.

First, the leaderboard is visible to your internal team and ranks employees by engagement efforts. Gamification inspires friendly competition among employees so that they continue to engage, and it allows you to reward the top performers for their efforts.

In addition, the traditional analytics dashboard shows you key metrics like estimated earned media value, total unique activities created, number of social interactions, shares, and clicks.
