  • Value of Business CommunitiesNow that we understand some of the challenges and trends around Enterprise Collaboration and Business Communities, let’s look at some of the Benefits you can derive from investing in a Community Platform.Engagement & Participation – Employee engagement and performance levels are critical factors in the long-term sustainability of any corporation. International research by Hewitt Associates indicates that companies with high levels of staff engagement have an average Total Shareholder Return of over 20%. For those with indifferent or destructive levels of employee engagement, average Total Shareholder Return is half that – less than 10%.Attracting, retaining & growing talent – Companies spend millions of dollars every year on recruiting the best candidates, keeping valuable employees, and grooming the their business leaders of tomorrow. An environment where employees feel engaged and valued is one that people want to join and stay at.Meeting challenges of diverse 21st century workforce – The 21st century workforce is the most diverse workforce ever. With globalization trends and demographic shifts, enterprises are facing increasing challenges catering to these diverse workstyles, disparate technology attitudes and different communication preferences. Communities help employees feel a sense of connectedness and belonging regardless of their age, race, or workstyle.Improved productivity – It’s a widely accepted corollary that happier employees  higher performing employees. Engaged employees tend to be more productive, profitable, reliable, and stay longer with their company than less engaged employees according to a Gallup study ( Agility – The average life expectancy of a Fortune 500 company is just 40 to 50 years—and shrinking. Only those institutions that can adapt and respond quickly to shifts in market dynamics are likely to survive in the long term.Faster, better business outcomes – Business communities empower people at all levels of the organization to make decisions quickly through efficient communication with the right people, and easy access to the right information in order to drive the best possible outcomes.Harness collective intelligence of entire organization – One of the greatest assets of any company are its people. Maximizing the value of this asset is critical to staying ahead of the competition and paving the way for future growth. Communities create an environment where people are encouraged share their knowledge, connect with others and contribute to the overall IP of the organization.Increased efficiencies – An agile organization is a lean organization. Creating an infrastructure that supports horizontal decision making (versus top-down processes) and transparent knowledge sharing is a good way to reduce bureaucracy and redundancy.Innovation – The collaborative exchange of ideas is the single most critical element of long-term, sustainable innovation.Sustainable framework for future growth – Chances are, your next big business success will be the result of an idea from your employee(s). A community platform helps to create a framework for this innovation pipeline where your people can post, share and rate ideas with each other.Maintaining/creating market leadership position – Establishing an environment that fosters innovation at all levels and groups in an organization is a key competitive differentiator.Increased speed to market – The more efficient your innovation pipeline is, the more you’ll be able to reap the rewards of first-mover advantage.
