Why Should my Company Introduce Enterprise Social Networking?

Over the past decade, companies have attempted to address knowledge "silos".  The days of searching through filing cabinets, looking through handbooks, printing memos, sending memos via email and departments resisting the need to share information with other departments are GONE. Employees need up-to-date information accessible on a laptop, mobile phone, or PC.

 

Organizations are getting many benefits from Enterprise Social Networking. Here are 3 reasons that will add value to your overall company.

  • Employee Collaboration
  • Increased Efficiency
  • Improved Culture & Morale

Successful Enterprise Social Collaboration

Employee Collaboration

The #1 key factor to successful COLLABORATION is Communication. Communication is a frequent problem that many businesses face. When the communication problem infects your company all channels of communication are impacted:

  • Within departments
  • Between departments
  • Between management and personnel
  • Between employees and customers

 

Empowering employees to collaborate allows them to become informed and connected. Employees become productive, effective and happier at their jobs. By introducing Enterprise Social Networking to your employees they are up-to-date on:

  • Latest company news
  • Announcements
  • Industry-relevant articles
  • Operational updates
  • Best practices
  • Informal & formal learning experiences
  • Project feedback
