Freudenberg · Social Media Guidelines

Raising awareness for an adequate behaviour of employees in social networks with e-learning

The Freudenberg Group develops high-quality technical products for various applications, ranging from chemicals and textiles to highly specialized seals and components for the automotive industry. Freudenberg represents creative technical solutions of excellent quality. The company aims to convey this brand image into the digital world, including professional networks like LinkedIn.

However, social media use also present pitfalls. Therefore, employees should adhere to certain guidelines when acting as members of the Freudenberg Group on social networks. To train these digital guidelines with flexibibility and in a scalable manner, Freudenberg commissioned p-didakt to create a digital training program on "Freudenberg Social Media Guidelines."

Like / Not Like interaction with feedback text

The short module (25 minutes) engages the learners with an immersive learning experience. The interface mimics the well-known professional network LinkedIn.

This implementation makes the module very engaging and effectively supports the practical transfer of Freudenberg's Social Media Guidelines.
