Join the conversation and learn how other companies help their employees engage the outside world.
Both company and employee need to look outward toward the overall environment in which they operate, especially when it comes to networks. Companies have to understand the employee’s broader place in the industry, while the employee should realize that his professional network is one of the key assets that can boost his long- term career prospects. At the same time, as part of the employer-employee alliance, the employee ought to tap his own individual network to advance their employer’s business, because who he knows in the industry can be just as valuable to the company as what he knows in terms of skills. Growing their professional networks helps employees transform their career; employee networking helps the company transform itself.
