by Community Admin in Alumni Leaders Podcast   |    Last Edited: 24th September 2020

Paul Sweeney and Lisa Abramowicz focus on market coverage as Wall Street begins its day, with analysis from Bloomberg Opinion writers, Bloomberg Intelligence analysts, and influential newsmakers.

James Sinclair of EnterpriseAlumni highlights 3 areas organizations are leveraging their Alumni Community during this crisis and as they plan for recovery:

  • Community: Companies are leveraging EnterpriseAlumni as a single community platform to engage their former employees and deliver communications, resources, benefits, open access to leadership as well as learning opportunities to upskill their former employees.
  • Resource Planning: As companies are starting to model the employee requirements for recovery, many are leveraging EnterpriseAlumni to build out a staffing plan of availability, competencies, and readiness, looking to leverage past employees to drastically reduce the training and time to productivity.
  • Marketing & Brand Advocacy: With a decrease in ad spend and the dramatic increase in spending when the economy reopens, leveraging historic employees to help amplify the message and provide organic reach.

All organizations are recognizing the importance of maintaining a connection with their former employees for Recruiting, Sales, Brand Advocacy, and more, they are a low-cost pool of available and qualified talent.
