Social employees do better work. The benefits of implementing social networks inside professional organizations Silos are still a reality in most professional organizations, as are hierarchies and traditional, linear workflows. Many times, information is available on a “need-to-know” basis. And a lot of time is wasted searching for resources by email, phone or in-person. Alternatively, social networking platforms inside of any organization can provide transparency of knowledge and work. Employees can get real-time feedback from peers. Sharing and collaboration can happen virtually from anywhere, at anytime, thus leading to significant increases in employee engagement and productivity. The ability to react to change quickly and appropriately translates to not only better and faster solutions, but to cost-savings and time-savings as well. Luke Roberts, Senior Strategic Planner
