Inside The Social Workplace
The Social Workplace is a thought leadership blog that has become an essential resource 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.
Is The Social Workplace a person, place or thing?

Well… its complicated. Elizabeth is a PERSON who has a THING for engaging employees through technology to get to a social workPLACE. Does that count?
Elizabeth is a globally recognized thought leader and key note speaker on employee engagement, social intranets, employee / employer branding, and the holistic social transformation of business processes and HR functions to simultaneously drive employee productivity and business results. She is an extroverted geek (yes, this is an oxymoron) who likes to get elbows deep in the back-end technology but also understands the front-end emotional engagement it takes to support and inspire employees. On a completely unrelated topic, she also loves shoes.
Elizabeth is a board member of the Social Media and Employee Communications Advisory for the Institute for Human Resources, and is a member of SHRM, the ANA Marketing Social Media committee, and Intranet Benchmarking Forum (IBF). She is listed in HR Examiner’s Top 25 Online Influencers in Talent Management, Top 10 Influencers in Enterprise 2.0, and Traackr.com’s A-list for influencers in enterprise social media.
At Verizon, Elizabeth helps drive the vision and employee experience of an HR intranet that serves 130K employees globally. She also executes employee communications and engagement programs that grow and sustain a values-driven culture, engage and inform employees, and drive a high-performing workforce — basically executing on anything that makes employees more informed and inspired.
