Times are changing. Businesses are transforming. Employees are engaging. Welcome to The Social Workplace. The Social Workplace is a thought leadership blog for organizations who understand that having a high performance organization and an engaged workforce are complementary goals, and that both are necessary for maximizing success. Employee engagement is multi-faceted: there is no one magical solution for every employee. The drivers of engagement differ from company to company, department to department, and employee to employee. That’s why The Social Workplace believes there are two key areas of transformation: 1) implement high performing systems that streamline business and people processes to enable productivity; and, 2) leverage the employee lifecycle to create a sustaining and engaging experience that drives relevancy and adoption.
