We have a role to play in a team. But when it comes down to it, we all have a healthy curiosity about the role we play in the team, whether we’re seen as leaders, someone who mixes with other members in the organization…
From the company’s point of view, it is interesting to be able to assess an employee’s contribution of knowledge, participation, involvement and active management in the company, but often it is a complex task that is difficult to quantity.
The evolution of technology 2.0 and its adaptation to the business world through Enterprise Social Networks, like Zyncro, now gives companies a central location where all company knowledge is stored.
Now we can measure this participation thanks to a new feature in Zyncro we’re proud to present today: the Personal Statistics Dashboard. This new ZyncroApp allows companies discover and determine the contribution of each employee according to specific indicators.
From today, in your Zyncro you can access a Personal Statistics Dashboard in beta phase from the Administration Panel > ZyncroApps.
Once the administrator activates it, as a user you will see a quantitative evaluation in the right column in Zyncro. Each user will receive a qualification based on their participation in the network in the last 30 or 15 days, divided into three sections:
- Leadership: measures the contributions you make and receive within your network of contacts and establishes which role you play within your organization
- Knowledge: values the information you contribute to your organization and the use made of it by your network contacts
- Your active network: the number of contacts with whom you interact within the selected time period.
For those users who have just joined the organization and still don’t have any data to define their leadership level, their score will be Beginner. The remainder will have one of 5 leadership levels, following the model of the main indexes of influence in social networks like Klout, PeerIndex or TwitterGrader.
These indexes can be used as indicators for determining your involvement and contribution to the company. If your activity increases over the last 15/30 days, your score will go up, however if in this period your participation in the network has been lower, you will lose the points you have achieved.
Each user can see more information on the parameters taken into account for calculating each index, by clicking on More details in the bottom right.
We hope that you find the Zyncro Personal Statistics Dashboard really useful and that it encourages both internal participation and communication in the same way as we’ve already seen in our own organization. We must say that there is a clear before and after at Zyncro with the new dashboard.
How do I start to use it?
Your organization’s Zyncro administrator must activate the ZyncroApp from the Administration Panel > ZyncroApp > Personal Statistics.
From that moment, the dashboard will appear on the right for all users.
Everyone’s contribution is important. Bring out the leader in you!
