What happens when you tag a company on LinkedIn?
When you tag a LinkedIn Company Page in a LinkedIn post, the people who manage the company page (company page administrators) receive a notification which is usually accompanied by an email to those same people.
However, some company pages might have disabled the email notifications.
For a company page admin, just managing the mentions for a company page would itself be a full-time job. So, they might have disabled all the notifications.
Most admins of a LinkedIn Company Page likely have certain rules of engagement if they choose to respond to a tag.
In certain cases, the LinkedIn company page admins can also prevent people from tagging a company as well.
