Half (49%) of all interim managers say that social networking supports their role as an interim, according to a survey by Interim Partners, the provider of interim management solutions.
According to the research, almost all interim managers (92%) use LinkedIn and nearly a quarter (23%) use Twitter.
Doug Baird, Managing Director of Interim Partners, comments "interim managers are increasingly turning to new social media to develop their business network, communicate their specialist expertise, share knowledge and discover new interim assignments."
More than half of interim managers (55%) say that growing and keeping in touch with their business network is the most important reason for using social media.
Doug Baird said "except when they are on assignment interims work on their own, but they depend on an extensive business network and social media can help them to bridge the gap. There is huge potential for interims who use social networking to reach a wider network of business contacts who might be interested in using their services."
