Thanks for taking a moment to stop by. 2010 is almost done. The New Year brings new goals and initiatives for your organization. Finding new ways to foster innovation, enabling top-line revenue growth and internal cost containment are common themes as we head into 2011. It’s clear; the next few years will see the rise and maturity of the “social business transformation” as business frees their employees to create new channels to embrace their customers.
New generations of social savvy workers are helping transform businesses already. Leading organizations understand access to social tools impact their brand. More and more, success can be driven by specific interactions and relationships enabled by social tools such as online communities, forums, wikis, blogs, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and more. Businesses are finding new ways to utilize this new form of trust and advocacy to strengthen the way they market and sell, develop new products and manage their workforce.
In fact, becoming a social business might be one of the critical keys to staying in business. According to the 2010 IBM Chief Human Resource Officer Study, financially outperforming organizations are 57 percent more likely to allow their employees to use social and collaborative tools. However, fewer than 23 percent of employees use social networking or collaborative technologies to preserve critical knowledge, while just over a quarter use those tools to spread innovation throughout their organizations.
Many organizations are looking to get ahead of the curve. Lotusphere 2011 is one of the best ways to start. The 2011 conference breaks new ground delivering insight, tools and the foundation for organizations to become a social business -- and it’s attracting new types of professionals from across the organization.
