Social media has become a fixture in many of our lives, whether it is Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or any other of the growing list of social technology platforms.
For many of us not a day goes by that we don’t check in on our on-line lives. Organizations have recognized the power of this type of technology for functions such as sales and marketing, but it is all still relatively new in the learning space.
What does this technology mean for learning?
How can we best leverage the tools available to create an engaging, effective learning ecosystem?
Where does mobile fit into the equation?
There is a constant challenge within organizations to identify the best ways to create stronger employee engagement. Communication used to be very much top down and one way; nowadays it's much more multi-directional and that is creating an opportunity and challenge to leadership teams both in how to communicate and in how to deal with the feedback and demands coming from all angles! In this presentation I will be talking about the four enablers of employee engagement as identified by David MacLeod and Nita Clarke, the co-founders of the Engage for Success movement in the UK in their report 'Engaging for Success' (also known as the MacLeod Report) and how social media is driving the engagement agenda as well as providing an opportunity and tools to further improve employee engagement within our organisations.
“Realizing the Promise: Social Tech & Internal Collaborative Networks (ICN’s)” will focus on three elements which have been found to be “low-hanging fruit” associated with ICN’s:
1. Elimination of internal email, 2. Reductions in frequency and duration of internal meetings, and, 3. Increases in job satisfaction.
Low-hanging fruit is defined as a. Relatively easy to implement, b. Relatively low budget requirement, and, c. High potential positive organizational impact. Research, Citations, and Video clips from a text-book implementation of an ICN at a global insurance company will be featured. Listen in and ask questions as we go along. ICN’s are changing the way we work.

The global workforce is becoming increasingly mobile. As a result, the workplace is evolving, with less dedicated work cubes and more multi-functional gathering spaces that foster collaboration and social conversations; employees connecting through various media with co-workers across the country and world; and human resources wondering how these changes impact how work gets accomplished, how it changes office dynamics and company culture.
Technology is the backbone that makes work (and employees) more portable. Human resource professionals that effectively adapt to these trends with effective workplace strategies can strike a perfect balance of realizing significant cost savings while maintaining engagement and collaboration among the mobile and “traditional” office staff alike.
