    Enterprise Social Networks and E-learning: The Combination of Success to Improve Company Performance 

    Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

    Enterprise Social Networks are an essential part of communication and collaboration within any company. But its quantity of benefits are not limited to the two previous matters. Luckily, technology allows us to increasingly extend its radius of action to any individual in an organization, whether it be administrative staff, or to those who  perform their work in the field.

    What would be the benefits that an employee could find within a communication network within their company?

    Training: The growth of knowledge, including skills, will directly affect the results that we look for with each team member, without neglecting the fact that it can enlarge your résumé professionally.

    Recognition: The achievements that an individual attains at work are not always celebrated and this can work against any employer. It is of great importance to establish strategies that insure an accurate evaluation of an employee’s’ activities and generate acknowledgments.

    Incentives or alternate earnings:  Counting with variable schemes that encourage individual workers to overcome the objectives sought at a general level, it converts into a tool that will give you that extra push, allowing to put aside conformity to seek results.

    From the three pillars defined above, we will detail the magical combination that will allow us to align all these efforts in only one channel so as to not divert any action and to harness the energy of a single solution: (More …)

    The Strategic Route of DirCom 

    Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

    Today in businesses, communication is an indispensable practical strategy to create synergies, align knowledge, comprehension, attitudes and behavior. The societies and organizations are complex human groups organized in networks with multiple connections within and outside of their environments where people’s experiences imply the change of time and space territories.

    Therefore the work of Dircom requires a high level of sofistication technically and with tools that allow planning, operating, measuring and evaluating with the necessary indicators that give certainty and efficiency to their strategies and, above all, to obtain verifiable impacted business results.

    Overcoming Three Roadblocks to High Performance with Enterprise Social Networks 

    Estimated reading time: 6 minutes

    My research is leading me to some interesting perspectives on how enterprise social networks (ESN) can improve performance in organizations. Etienne Wenger’s work on Communities of Practice suggest several business problems that can be overcome through the effective use of ESNs. These problems are roadblocks to high performance, and developing communities of practice on ESNs can remove some of these roadblocks.

    Roadblock 1: Speed of Knowledge Economy

    Things (economy, competition, customer needs, innovation, etc.) are moving way too fast for the manner in which most organizations are structured. Moreover, the collective knowledge of any field is changing at an accelerating rate. Centralized communications, knowledge management, and training functions cannot keep up with the ever-changing need for information. Wenger (Cultivating Communities of Practice, 2002) says it best: “Without communities focused on critical areas, it is difficult to keep up with the rapid pace of change”. Active communities of practice can keep up, especially if much of the community’s participation is on a enterprise social network. Conversations on ESNs occur at the very speed at which the business (and its participants) are running. They are naturally in sync.

    One of the biggest fears when implementing an Enterprise Social Network is how to convince employees to use it. How do I get users to participate?

    The success of your Enterprise Social Network depends on a strategy for definition, rollout and consolidation that you should have designed beforehand, but there are factors that can help you hook your employees. Why not do it by introducing game dynamics?

    Enterprise Social Networks and ‘presentialism’ in our organizations 

    Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

    One of the major criticisms of organizations, together with ‘degreeitis’, is ‘presentialitis’. Our bosses have always had greater esteem for employees who spend hours at work regardless of their productivity and have mistakenly associated it with their commitment to the company.

    Today I want to talk about Enterprise Social Networks and how they can achieve real commitment from employees.

    Efficient use of the Enterprise Social Network is based on a collaborative spirit among members, their desire to improve through conversation and contributions. And these elements are not determined by the clock.

    When a member hears something that benefits the company, they can communicate it through the Network at any moment (imagine multinational enterprises with offices in different time zones. Whether they spend 15 hours a day is not valued, rather that when they connect, they provide real value to their group and organization.

    A look at Zyncro: the first European Enterprise Social Network 

    Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

    Editor’s note: Simply Communicate, a community of internal communication professionals based in London and New York, has shown interest in Zyncro as the leading Enterprise Social Network in Europe. Following an interview with Patricia Fernández, VP Marketing at Zyncro, they have performed a case study in which they examine our tool and analyze some of the features that make Zyncro the most flexible Social Business platform on the market. Check out what they said about us :-)

    Companies like Cetelem and Telefonica Latin America are turning to the Spanish enterprise social solution. One of the reasons is Zyncro’s ‘white labeling’ feature which offers seamless branding and customization.

    Launched in Spain in 2009, Zyncro has already reached 250,000 users in 28 nations across Europe, America and Asia, where China is a growing market. Zyncro is used by a big variety of customers in banking and financial services, insurance, retail, hospitality, IT, HR, Public Administration and Healthcare, Engineering and Automotive, and NGO sectors.

    We caught up with Patricia Fernández (pictured right), VP Marketing at Zyncro, to find out more about this innovative ESN, winner of the 2012 EuroCloud award for the best European startup.

    What is different in Zyncro from other ESNs?

    “We consider Zyncro as the most flexible platform in the market. For us it’s really important to adapt to the real needs of the customers so what we offer is a large range of integrations with our competitors, e.g. SharePoint, ERP systems, and with different corporate software solutions. In fact, we are about to launch an integration with Chatter.”
