New LinkedIn Company Page Features


By Lynne Williams

In November, we can reflect on all the things we are grateful for, including some of the little things in life, like upcoming new features being rolled out by LinkedIn.

For those of us who have LinkedIn company pages (like mine), we can now invite connections to follow the page.

In addition, any company, university, or high school will also be able to add a Follow button.

This is a pretty exciting feature for any company, organization, or school who wants to help build their brand and community, especially in the hopes that employees will be willing to share the company content when they receive Employee Notifications once every seven days.

Company Page Administrators can now be the catalyst for employee or volunteer engagement, celebrations, team moments, recognitions, kudos, spotlights, and more.

So … when this feature rolls out on your page, get ready to thank or recognize your most valuable asset … your people.

If you need to attend a LinkedIn workshop, you will find the upcoming dates on the meetup under the events tab on our website with the next being Sat 11/23/19.

Don’t miss our upcoming featured events. If you are a working adult, come learn and network with us. You must be a member of the meetup before you can RSVP to any of these events and see the location and other details.
