At DSMN8, we regularly conduct research on LinkedIn to celebrate the companies whose employees are consistently sharing content within their own networks. This month we’re looking at some of the biggest law firms in the UK & Ireland.

Leveraging employees’ networks on social media is a vastly untapped resource for marketing teams across the globe. When employees share, they have a combined reach that far surpasses the reach on the company’s own social accounts. Failing to utilize this is a huge missed opportunity.

In more sensitive industries, encouraging employee participation in sharing content can be a tricky task without a formal program in place.

However, some firms across the UK & Ireland are doing an exceptional job of this, and the June – July report for UK law firms found that the average number of employees who share to LinkedIn is around 22.67%. Well done to those who are setting the bar so high!

Companies that roll out formal employee advocacy programs with DSMN8 typically see 30-40% of their employees sharing their company content to social on a monthly basis, with some accounts seeing as high as 70%.
