Social technology is inherently transformational. When used effectively, it can move a business from transactional to interactional. Making this leap requires changing the way we relate to our employees and coworkers. It demands acknowleding the skills, gifts and talents of your employees.
Building a Culture of Recognition
When TemboSocial first rolled out Recognition, social recognition that integrates with enterprise intranets, it unlocked the potential for companies to build a culture of recognition within an organization. A report from Accelir, a strategic HR advisory firm, cites creating a culture of recognition as one of the leading trends in business today.
Employee recognition does even more than build engagement and lower a company’s churn, it also builds intelligence into the organization. When you learn that Bob down in Accounting is not just a bean counter but in his spare time he's also a master furniture maker and a mentor to juniors in the office, you suddenly see a whole lot more potential in your staff. Maybe Bob has some useful input on the look-and-feel of the new web portal that’s under development.
