Why Do Your Hybrid Workers Need An Enterprise-wide Social Network?
Large enterprises are never short of news
From regular company updates to specific team movements, new hires, community events, charitable endeavors, and senior leadership comms, there is - one would say - an overload of information that internal comms managers and senior leaders have to dispense to their teams.
However, packaging this news in engaging and relevant ways is a bit of a challenge for leaders who are rightly focused on their day-to-day responsibilities.
This is where enterprise social networks change the nature of internal communications by taking the burden off individual teams or departments to curate & deliver team updates or news to the broader company, teams & individuals through the provision of one, bespoke, branded, easy-to-use company-wide platform.
Here are the primary reasons why integrating an enterprise-wide social network is good for all your staff, and especially your remote or hybrid contingent:
Sharing critical information at scale, reaching the right people at the right time
Well-designed internal social networks operate like external ones in that they become repositories for community-wide news, updates, opinions, and discussions.
A well-positioned and curated internal social network hyper-focuses that type of generalist, community-centric information to an enterprise-wide news feed, helping connect staff to a thread of goings-on around the company that may otherwise be lost amongst the emails, texts, video calls, and remote meetings.
For remote staff, an enterprise-wide news feed becomes the HQ for all company information outside and in the project and job-related tasks, which naturally builds connections between disparate workforces and draws workers across departments together.
Break down communication barriers
By facilitating two-way conversation between management & employees, enterprise social networks help break down communication barriers and flatten the organizational structure.
Ubiquitous, uniform, usable UX that drives engagement
There is nothing more distracting & disturbing than swapping between multiple tabs, workflow platforms, communication hubs, WhatsApp chats, slack channels, and email when trying to stay organized.
An enterprise-wide social network is more than a message board or break-out platform (although they are good at that too!) - a well-crafted social network will ease entire team and business communications and take away labor-intensive flicks between them separate HR or workflow channels. Simple UX should be part of the process of talking and engaging with peers and seniors.
