Social media has transformed the way in which Sage communicates with our customers and has changed how our customers connect with and perceive our brand. Our aspiration is for Sage to lead the way as a world-class social organization. We will achieve this through empowering all our 14,000 colleagues to take an active role in social media and spread the word about Sage.
To provide you with the confidence you need to become a social media expert, the Sage Academy has created a series of four films aimed at helping you understand the positive impact you can have by being an ambassador of Sage. The Sociable Day Series will also teach you how to create an account on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook and so on and will show you how to share Sage posts with your social networks using Sociabble (which is accessed through Chatter). You’ll be able to view the Sociable Day Series when you join us and your network logons have been set up.

@LifeatSage is Sage careers’ Instagram account which tells the story about what it’s like to work here. As Sage colleagues, you have a crucial part to play – it’s your story, it’s your time to influence talent to join us. It’s time to be creative, have fun, be innovative and publish your content to the world.
For us here at Sage, Instagram will allow us to grow and humanize our brand, showcase our culture and give everyone a glimpse of what it’s like to work here. It’s a very personal approach, and our aim is to use our own images and pictures – crucially, created by the very people who work here; to engage potential colleagues without going too “corporate”.
Everyone can help getting our Instagram – see Building Employer Brand Awareness on Instagram.

Glassdoor is essentially Trip Advisor for companies. At the end of your first week, we would like you to write a review on Glassdoor. (It’s completely anonymous). Ask your direct reports and colleagues to add reviews and remind them during their 1-2-1s, mid-year review, end of year review and so on. The more of us who contribute to Glassdoor, the more information an applicant has when deciding on Sage as their next employer. It’s a great way to share with a potential new colleague what the culture is like here.
