Social Media to Social Business - Your Awareness Maturity Check

I really liked and resonated with this post regarding “The Typical Social Business Journey Is Anything But Typical” http://blog.mention.com/the-typical-social-business-journey-is-anything-but-typical/

Here are the points my eyes captured for your convenience to share in Crip and Share format.

The employee is the new marketing department.
5 pillars:

  1. Embraces the culture and technology of social for both internal and external engagement purposes,
  2. Not just the marketing department. In a social business, the employee is the new marketing department. 
  3. A social business empowers employees (3) to build their personal brand in alignment with the corporate brand.
  4. Invests in social technology (4) to listen, monitor and analyze conversations online in order to understand the sentiment of customers, employees, and all constituents. 
  5. Harness the insights found in data to enable decision-making

Its’ a journey

  • Consider that nothing in business happens overnight. The convergence of culture, people, process, and technology is always a journey.
  • Under the guidance of strong leadership, the journey should not be forced or rushed.
  • The authenticity of employee engagement is more influential than what the marketing department can do when communicating in the name of the brand.
  • The new face of the corporate brand is, the social employee.
  • A business that doesn’t listen well is not a social business.

Thanking for spreading the awareness to your social network! Together, We Are the Change!

Fascinating facts about social recruitment

Ignoring what happens in social media is not a viable legal strategy.

Kabrina Krebel Chang and Gerald C Kane

Managers must remain cognizant of employees’ online activity, even when it happens outside of work hours and work computers. The Philadelphia Police Department was sued for creating a racially hostile work environment through social media. A blog started by a white police sergeant and dedicated to law enforcement issues deteriorated into posts about questionable law enforcement practices such as racial profiling. These issues, discussed by employees online and at work, became racially derogatory; as a result, a complaint was filed on the basis that the blog created a hostile work environment for nonwhite officers. The department chose to settle the case out of court.

The new position of the enterprise social consultant.
Instead of allowing social business tools to languish through a “Provide and Pray” approach, organizations can use enterprise social consultants to bridge departments and support bottoms-up change. They will:
Work with the executive sponsors to understand the key metrics for understanding adoption, influence and case studies, with the understanding that  REJ (rapid economic justification) is more important than ROI at the start.
Empower  and partner with community managers who know the business and have strong relationships across many departments. They’ll be responsible for working with influencers  to capture tacit knowledge through tagging, tracking and linking. 
Guide policy and compliance – provide guidance for a user acceptance agreement coordinated with corporate security, with the understanding that too much control will stifle innovation and adoption.
Working with marketing and corporate communication create a platform that is first an employee hub and not designed specifically as another one-way platform.
Cross departments and lines of business – After a pilot combine data from the platform together with business data to help show impact and cross-business collaboration.. 
Build influencer community consisting of movers and shakers who are have a passion to communicate and are willing to represent their departments or lines of business.
Guide IT in setting up profile integration and single sign-on that makes adoption simple and secure, and in integrating with intranet or extranet partner platforms.
