Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

Streeeeeeetch!

*3aaaaah* Alright, now that was a good stretch. I feel like I have been hibernating all these months. True true, Im an impulse poster, who posts only when enthusiasm is at its highest. Currently enthusiasm has been pretty low. Reading news online has become a drag, my best news source is BBC radio. Work has been full throttle so I divert most of my energy there, no time to think or be philosophical and such.

I have mentioned earlier on twitter that I was planning on getting the company I work for to buy into the corporate social networking. Blogs, twittering, wikis, the works! Of course, it is not easy, neither will it be, but imagine the potential this strategy has.

What many do not understand is that building an image is not only the PR peoples job! We as a department that provide services to other departments and to our customers as well can have a great (positive) effect on the workplace. Sure, not everything is shiny and sure we are bound to be hit by a backlash, but why not? Dont people deserve to know about certain events? Im sure theyd like to see how we are actually working pretty hard on getting great services out there to the people.

Im working on it, we shall see where this will go.

P.S. Im very much contemplating posting about my extreme geekism, but Im sure Im going to lose my primary readers because it is too technical and geeky =P

    You’re right, a company’s rep doesn’t depend on its PR department. It depends on how well its employees talk about the company, which reflects how the company treats them. The product quality reflect the company and the employee’s dedication.

    Sadly lots of companies, especially here in the gulf, treat employees like replaceable commodities, which is why the companies become replaceable themselves

    Good luck getting everyone on board. People can be naturally resistant to change. In a perfect company everyone would care how the company does. They would all be willing to promote the company in any way they see fit. Unfortunately most employees would rather stick to their predefined tasks.

    This sounds like a pretty good venture. This is the first time I’ve ever heard of something like this, but it may work really well.
