About The AIAAbout The AIA
“More companies are discovering that an über-connected workplace is not just about implementing a new set of tools — it is also about embracing a cultural shift to create an open environment where employees are encouraged to share, innovate, and collaborate virtually.” – Karie Willyerd and Jeanne C. Meister, authors and founders of Future Workplace
This is the case at the American Institute of Architects. We recognize that such social media outlets as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, Foursquare, and LinkedIn are personal, effective, targeted, two-way communication tools that reinforce our brand messaging. The result is a higher level of engagement with our broader community of members and prospects online.
Fostering virtual relationships, enhancing online conversations about the practice of architecture, and bringing traffic to the AIA website are all positive outcomes of our social media use.
