How Do You Become a Social Business?


Technology has facilitated more efficient ways of communicating. Social tools aid decision making; they are the new operating systems of the 21st century. In the past, knowledge was managed in organisational silos. However, there is a move towards flatter hierarchies with cross functional teamwork, promoting greater collaboration, sharing knowledge and jointly editing documents.  

Technology facilitates new ways of working. However, it is central to the Globocol's philosophy that technology alone won't make you a social business. A social business is one that embraces the structural and behavioural changes which the application of social tools implies.

It's not what you Know, it's what you Share

Empower Your People. Understand the dynamics of your business, the relationships between people and departments. Identify your leaders and best performers. Give these people a voice and make them accessible to others. Your culture and how you communicate with each other is at the core of becoming a successful social business.

Drive Greater Collaboration. Thriving in today's fast changing world means encouraging practices which help your people discover expertise quickly and easily. Innovation and creativity can come from unlikely sources. Building a more collaborative culture facilitates a greater sharing of knowledge and a faster problem resolution

Social Business Means Open Business. Becoming a successful social business isn't about what you know, it's about what you share. The same rules need to apply at every level of the organisation. That means senior management must be committed to new ways of working and are seen to embrace it.

Globocol can help you to evaluate your progress in becoming a social business and design a bespoke programme to deal with issues unique to your organisation. Connect with Globocol.
