I'm sure a certain percentage of people are happy when employers bring in free lunch or other perks for the office as a way of saying thank you.  But if you begin to actually say words of thanks on a consistent basis then maybe your culture will respond with greater #employeeengagement because they know that you appreciate, you understand.  Here's four phrases that may help change your vocabulary which will help inspire better connection and trust with your talent.

Google Plus Marketing: The Pull & Push
There are tons of different strategies that we can go by when it comes to using Google Plus.  But while most of us have different strategies, there is one thing that we can all agree on.  

Marketing and Branding are two different things.

Read the article here: http://goo.gl/chEjfc

+martin shervington (also mentioned in the article) has been a key element in helping me understand how branding actually works, and beat it all, +Dustin W. Stout kindly mentioned me last night in his run down of the speech +Jay Baer done at SMMW14 about how people were getting tired of the "look at me" strategy.

Push and Pull Marketing

This article really shows you why you should do each of these things and when the right time is to actually bring these ideas into your strategy here on Google Plus.  

Quote in the article

If you push a string it collapses in the middle, sometimes overlapping itself and basically represents chaos and disorder.  That is what pushing your followers too early can get you with your Google Plus marketing strategy.  Understanding when to push them is the key to being successful.

Does this information hold up to what you have personally experienced?

#sociallearning   #socialmedia   #sharing   #socialsharing  
 
How does your own site and content stack up against the latest numbers from Shareaholic? Are Facebook and Pinterest your top referrers?

This is a regular report that +Danny Wong puts together demonstrating how, out of all the sites currently utilize Shareaholic social sharing buttons, where those sites get their referral traffic.

I still think Danny is filtering +The Social Media Hat out of these reports so as not to skew the results too much in favor of Google+ and Twitter. ;)
Welcome to the Q1 2014 edition of our Social Media Traffic Report. See how many referrals the 8 most popular social media sites drove to publishers.

Thanks Dawna! Indeed, there are some great things to do to show your appreciate for your remote workers. My favorite is having virtual pie together: http://www.lisettesutherland.com/2012/10/virtual-pie-to-celebrate-success/ - At a former company party, one of the remote employees joined the party via Skype (we just put the computer on the couch). Another company sent a gift certificate to a local restaurant in lieu of the worker not being able to join the team dinner.

There's also http://kudobox.co/ - that's an easy way to give a public thank you to someone.

It is so important to express appreciation - especially when remote.

Great article! I would argue that the vocabulary you offer should be used more by all employees with all of their colleagues, no matter their relationship on the org chart. Younger workers especially need to be reminder to express appreciation for the efforts of their co-workers, and to do what they can to make the workplace a more pleasant and welcoming environment.

Engagement and retention is everyone's job, and is in everyone's interest, not just managers'.

+Kevin W. Grossman has listed some things your can do in your workplace to help bring about employee engagement.  It's an awesome article from Kevin.

#employeeengagement   #TChat   #gratitude   #leadership   #workplaceculture  
 
 "When engagement is high, when companies actually do win over the hearts and minds of their workforce, and vice-versa, or most of them at least in the real world, when emotional connection is high among peers as well as leadership, then that’s when we’re “knee deep in the hoopla.”

+Kevin W. Grossman writes about how employee engagement changes the workplace for the better.
