This content may be internal or external and is chosen by the internal administrators appointed by the company. Thus, through Bambu, employees stay updated on the organization’s content, new initiatives, industry-news, media mentions, or any upcoming events, fostering a stronger feeling of attachment and involvement with their place of work.      

Bambu allows for notes to be added to any material on the sharing board so that admins can suggest how the material should be shared, suggest captions, or provide hashtags and people to tag in the post. They can also indicate which items are more urgent or important, so sharing those can be prioritized. The board is accessible via the employee’s Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts. From there they can read and share the content they choose for their specific audiences.

The reporting capabilities Bambu provides are also fantastic. You can track the content employee advocates share and gauge how well it performs across different platforms. This way, all stakeholders get deeper insights into the performance at the team, department, and individual level.

Our Review Verdict

Bambu is a cloud-based Employee Advocacy solution best suited for large-scale organizations and enterprise companies. Its 24/7 support, online and in-person training sessions, and plenty of webinars and documentation make it really easy to set up and start using it. All in all, it is an incredible tool and a must-have if you want to get the most out of your Employee Advocacy Programs.
