Social Media and Workforce Collaboration: A Checkpoint
Posted on November 22nd, 2011 by
It's been a few years now since Enterprise 2.0 first arrived on the scene as a concept, back in 2006. At the time -- and even now -- the premise was compelling: As social media became a primary means of communication in the consumer world, a similar transformation would inevitably happen in the workforce… Interestingly, despite the challenges, organizations like the Department of Veterans Affairs and the prestigious Mayo Clinic have begun using cross-border Enterprise 2.0 to collaborate with patients in areas like treatment and clinical trials. This underscores the point that the most useful and effective collaborate often takes place between all relevant participants, rather than just workers alone.
