Who do you need on your employee advocacy team?

Creating your employee advocacy team is straightforward when you have the right tech platform in place to support your activity with colleagues, scale up the programme and measure the results accurately.

Essentially, you’ll need three key roles and here we've included the team you need to get up and running with your employee advocacy programme. Read on to see who you should have on your team.

Senior stakeholder

A senior stakeholder will build support internally for an employee advocacy programme and makes sure it is aligned with the wider business’s goals and objectives.

Often an employee advocacy programme is implemented after a business or digital transformation piece, so having a senior stakeholder on the team helps make sure the new vision and values are communicated through the new advocacy programme and that everyone in the company gets behind the new initiative.

Advocate manager

An advocate manager is a bit like a social media community manager and helps manage the new advocacy programme. They will typically spend 2-3 hours a week on it once the programme is set up.

This includes: making sure weekly and monthly reporting is on track; managing recruitment of advocates; giving manual surprise and delight rewards and badges (in addition to the automated ones awarded through Qubist); community management and some internal comms.

Content creator

A content creator is responsible for images and social content on the new platform.

This content is likely to be based on pre-existing content from the wider business such as your social media plan or influencer campaigns - advocacy content often includes challenges and tasks for advocates to complete. The advocate manager will be able to feedback to the content creator on how different types of content are performing, so all new content can be optimised.

Qubist Tip: At Qubist, we run a pilot for our clients initially and work closely with teams to create the content with you to ensure success in the early days.
