    Where is your organization in regards to your Web 20 evolution?
    No Activity at this Time (i.e.: banned Facebook, Twitter, MySpace for internal employee usage, not using solutions internally or externally)
    Early Stages of Experimentation (No Formal Strategy or ownership)
    Formal Owner visible, and pilots underway but inconsistencies between internal and external usages.
    Experienced (strategy well defined, over 2 years of innovation successes) ease of access to toolkits both internally and externally
    Expert (identified as a best practice, thought leadership, well funded etc).

    Social Computing Defined
    • Social computingis a social structure in which technology puts power in communities, not in institutions.
  • 11
    Social media tools are becoming widespread for Enterprise use.
    Emerging Capabilities / Usage Patterns
    Enterprise Adoption Trends
    About half of companies already have or will be implementing an online social network by this time next year [2009]1
    It likely that some form of wiki exists in all of the global Fortune 1,0002
    Almost four fifths of executives surveyed see sharing / collaboration as an opportunity to increase their companies revenue and/or margins3
    Source Helix Commerce International Inc.
    “Enterprise social software will be
    the biggest new workplace
    technology success story of this
    decade.”
    “Companies that don’t employ wikis or blogs, whether the CIO knows about them or not, are quickly becoming a rarity.”
    “Social computing is not a fad...
    [it] will impact almost every role, at every kind of company, in all parts of the world.”

    Young Adults and Web 2.0
    Not Investing in Web 2.0 Today Is Like Not Investing in the Internet in the Late ’90s.
    Social networking penetration today is at ~30%, similar to Internet penetration in the late ’90s.
    • From 1990 (“time zero” for the Internet) to 1995, US Internet penetration increased from <1% to 9%.
    • 12. From 2003 (“time zero” for social networking) to 2008, US social networking penetration increased from <1% to 28%.
    Internet Inception = 1990
    Soc NW Inception = 2003

    Innovating Management Practices is what Web 2.0 is really about.
    Management innovation is a significant source of future competitive advantage. 
    Information, technology and more importantly connectivity & collaboration are revolutionizing how a company develops its strategy,
    identifies its resources, mobilizes those resources and focuses them on results.
  • 14. 14
    Social Based Technologies are revolutionizing management practices.
    While there are cases of Web 2.0 technologies accelerating and extending current management practices, leaders are using them to innovate in the practice of management.
  • 15. 15

    Foster Innovation &
    Collaboration
    • Loosely coupled networks facilitate networking and knowledge sharing
    • 19. Real-time collaboration across organizational and geographical boundaries
    Enhance Partner/Customer Relationships
    • Open lines of communication Engaging partners throughout the development process
    • 20. Direct feedback from customers and partners
    Improve Employee Productivity
    • Enables unstructured, real-time information management and access
    • 21. Information rankings based on relevance and usability
    • 22. Informal knowledge networks
    Companies can realize significant benefits by adopting social media.
    Example: An airline flight reservation company implemented social networking, blogging, and Q&A functionality. Actively used by 65% of employees and direct measurable savings of $150,000 within 3 months.
    Example: A financial client tightened reporting cycle times from several weeks to &quot;about 30 seconds&quot; by enabling information submission directly into a team wiki and making that information instantly available to others.
    Example: A leading high-tech company instituted a “submit-and-vote-for-your-favorite-idea” social community, generating 300,000+ votes and over 5,000 ideas in its first three months and is using this to identify new
    product offerings.
    Value of Social Media to the Enterprise
  • 23. 19
    There are significant opportunity costs if social media is not properly addressed.
    Example: Senior executive of a semiconductor firm got an emergency call when an employee had set up a chat room outside the company firewall to discuss the company’s earning call.
    Loss of Control
    • Business units implement their own social media
    • 24. Quantity and variation of information distribution grows
    • 25. True ‘costs’ of social media are unmeasurable
    Example: A newly hired employee tweeted: “Company X just offered me a job! Now I have to weigh the utility of a fatty paycheck against the daily commute to San Jose and hating the work”.
    Example: A search giant faced talent drain as it lacked a formal process for senior executives to review innovative ideas generated by the employees.
    Competitive Disadvantages if Social Media is not Monitored or Managed
    Brand & Security Risk
    • Employees using public social media put IP and security at risk
    • 26. Unconstrained external sources influence company credibility and brand
    Talent Drain
    • Expectations of younger workforce to support transparency and ‘real-time’ accessibility
    • 27. Recruiting and retention of Gen Y talent is difficult without Social Media.

    Web 2.0 for Employee Engagement
    Craig Brown, Senior Director, Digital Social Media, MTS Allstream. Craig.Brown@mtsallstream.com
  • 29. 22
    Agenda
  • 23
    Background
    • MTS Allstream formed in 2004 through the acquisition of Allstream by MTS
    • 42. MTS provides high-speed Internet and data, digital television and wireline voice services to consumers as an ILEC in the province of Manitoba, Canada
    • 43. Allstream provides Internet protocol-based communications, unified communications, voice and data connectivity services to medium and large enterprise customers as a CLEC across Canada
    • 44. 2008 revenue C$1.9B
    • 45. 6,000 employees across Canada, including a substantial contingent of teleworker
    • 46. Divisions are run autonomously although certain departments fall under the corporate parent umbrella: I/T, network services, H/R, finance, legal
  • 24
    Employee Engagement Defined
    When an employee understands his or her role and responsibilities, brings passion and energy to work, and performs well to provide excellent service, an employee is said to be engaged.
    When employees are engaged at work, everyone wins:
    Employees tend to enjoy their work, are passionate and enthusiastic about the culture, and take the necessary steps to help the company succeed.
    Customers are more loyal because they receive better service from employees who are committed to finding solutions that address their problems.
    The Company benefits because an engaged workforce contributes significantly to profitability and a positive corporate culture
  • 47. 25
    Employee Engagement Challenges
    • 2008 Employee survey included a new metric: the Employee Engagement Index
    • 48. While scoring higher than our industry peers, the result was below the benchmark for the highest performing organizations
    • 49. Survey areas driving the employee engagement index include Strategy & Direction, Values, and Learning & Development
    • 50. Employees’ views on these three areas are the most related to employee engagement at MTS Allstream: the more favorable their views, the more engaged they are
    • 51. Survey also suggested we could do better at displaying positive energy, engaging employees to achieve corporate objectives, and fostering an environment for innovation and focus on the customer
    • 52. Nearly one quarter of Allstream division employees now telework from home
    • 53. Senior execs need to stay close to employees but pressed for time
    • 54. Five years after the merger, some groups continued to operate in silos, even within the same division
    • 55. Workforce reductions as a result of the slumping economy impact morale of those left behind
  • 26
    Employee Engagement Objectives
    Promote a culture of innovation and customer focus
    Inspire employees to think, collaborate and share their expertise with others
    Break down silos and promote communication across functional areas
    Foster sense of community and common purpose, regardless of division, geographic location or position in the hierarchy
    Demonstrate to the generation just entering the workforce that MTS Allstream is a progressive place to work that “gets” how they communicate
    Examined best practices at a host of leading organizations for guidance on how to best apply Web 2.0 tools and concepts for employee engagement.
  • 56. 27
    Internal Web 2.0 Applications
    Governance
    Cross-functional, cross-divisional Social Media Working Group was formed to:
    • Establish legal terms and conditions for use of social media internally and externally
    • 57. Establish guidelines and best practices for the use of social media internally and externally
    • 58. Evaluate and select standardized set of social media applications and templates to be used
    • 59. Evangelize the use of social media & collaboration
    • 60. Ensure alignment of objectives and approach across MTS Allstream divisions
  • 28
    Internal Web 2.0 Applications
    Objectives
    Provide forums for employees to share ideas, ask questions and brainstorm on new approaches to working and improving the business
    Improve the quality and frequency of communication between employees and senior executives
    Increase employee engagement and recognition
    Foster conversations and closer relationships between MTS Allstream divisions
    Build a sense of workplace community whether employees are based in the office or at home
  • 61. 29
    Internal Web 2.0 Applications
    Establishing Guidelines for Use
    • Internal guidelines are fairly standard—almost identical to our guidelines for use of Internet and e-mail, e.g.:
    • 62. Don’t spread confidential information.
    • 63. Don’t use information that is copyright protected by someone else.
    • 64. Don’t use abusive language in your blog postings or in your comments.
    • 65. Nothing on our intranet is anonymous, so employees will be held accountable if they violate these rules
    • 66. So that the conversation isn’t stifled forum posts are not moderated prior to going live
    • 67. Users can post in either English or French, however posts & comments are not translated
    • 68. For true “global collaboration”, multinationals will need to select a common language for communication, while ensuring that discussions confined to regional subsidiaries remain in the local language
  • 30
    Internal Web 2.0 Applications
    Social media ‘Terms of Use’ developed to govern employee forums and blogs also covers Facebook and other external sites
    Clear direction to employees about misuse of Internet
  • 69. 31
    Web 2.0 in Action
    The Employee Exchange is an internal site that houses the most up-to-date messages from the company’s top Executives, a library of webcasts and presentations of our quarterly & annual results, and discussion forums where employees can share their opinions and ideas on an ongoing basis.
    • facilitate greater understanding of MTS Allstream corporate direction
    • 70. provide a forum for employees to share ideas, ask questions and brainstorm on new approaches to working and improving the business
    • 71. derive “instant feedback” on all-employee calls and townhall meetings, strategic initiatives, quarterly results, etc.
    Since January 2009, employees have contributed nearly 400 posts generating hundreds of replies
    “Our executives use Web 2.0 tools to be more in touch with their employees and to make communication more transparent across units and hierarchies. Employees use the tools to submit ideas on how to increase performance. They appreciate being in touch with top management.”
    • Hardy Rehmann
    Web 2.0 Lead, T-Systems Business Services GmbH
  • 72. 32
    Web 2.0 in Action
    Executive Blogs
    Several executives have launched internal blogs in the past year, including Allstream president Dean Prevost. These are used to provide forums for our leadership team to share their ideas, knowledge of topics that are of interest to them with MTS Allstream employees.
    • improve the quality and frequency of communication with team members and employees
    • 73. raise awareness of the activities of different functional areas
    • 74. share expertise, opinion and guidance on topics of interest to the executive
    “Internal communications is going to have to redefine itself to be more about participation, about keeping a finger on the pulse of the organization and how it’s being perceived.”
    - Richard Dennison
    Internal Programme Manager, BT Group plc
  • 75. 33
    Web 2.0 in Action
    A SharePoint community of interest featuring discussion forums, document repositories and anchored by a site moderator/owner’s blog. Workplace 2.0 is a teleworking program through which over 700 participating employees are currently working remotely on a full-time basis.
    provide a space for the Workplace 2.0 program leaders to share information about the program with participating employees and those interesting in joining
    provide a forum for participating employees to share ideas, best practices, technical and moral support for issues that arise from working at home
    foster a similar sense of community & “togetherness” among teleworkers that onsite employees experience.
    “IBM is a company of nearly 400,000 employees residing in over 200 countries. One-third of them telecommute and social media has made it closer, more efficient and more agile.”
    - George Faulkner
    Editor-in-Chief, IBM Media Library

    Web 2.0 in Action
    Competitive Intelligence Wiki
    A knowledge management system for the Allstream Sales & Marketing Team, utilizing a collaborative wiki environment and practices to collect & collate competitive intelligence data.
    • share the latest information & analysis of competitors’ products, offers and activities
    • 77. improve Sales’ awareness of competitive threats & opportunities
    • 78. raise Marketing’s awareness of the capabilities of our competitors so that Marcom, Product Management and Channel Marketing can formulate effective responses
    “The advantage … is that the information can be uploaded easily and those who are interested or need the information can access it at any time. I think it is a very effective tool for preventing information loss.”
    - YohNosaka
    Leader, Marketing & Promotion, NEC Soft

    In Development
    MyStarbucksidea.com
    The concept of our internal idea sharing site is heavily influenced by Starbucks’ approach. By actively soliciting customers for their ideas on improving Starbucks, mystarbucksidea.com serves as a vehicle for the rapid market testing and implementation of those ideas at Starbucks coffee houses:
    “What’s your Starbucks Idea? Revolutionary or simple—we want to hear it. Share your ideas, tell us what you think of other people’s ideas and join the discussion. We’re here, and we’re ready to make ideas happen. Let’s get started.”
    Idea Sharing & Collaboration Space
    Following the success of the Employee Exchange, this site is the next step in the use of social media at MTS Allstream to encourage collaboration, generate great ideas, put them into action and report on their success.
    • keep the concept of continuous employee feedback alive
    • 80. improve the quality of ideas through moderated, collaborative peer review: turn good ideas into great ideas
    • 81. provide a blog space where the executive responsible for tackling the top ideas will make a blog post/report about the status of the item
    • 82. increase employee engagement, recognition and retention
    Since its launch in March 2008:
    • 3 million unique visitors
    • 83. 60,000 ideas submitted
    • 84. 100,000s of comments
    • 85. 460,000 votes

    Lessons Learned
    • To lay the groundwork for successful adoption of social media technologies, organizations must start with a culture that emphasizes knowledge sharing, discussion, and openness.
    • 92. HR, IT and legal departments need to strike a careful balance between protecting the company's interests and ensuring that social media's greatest potential can be realized
    • 93. Businesses must be flexible and open to alternative ways of using technology, and they must be careful not to underestimate the creativity and technical know-how of Generation Y.
    • 94. Strict control of social media is out of the question—instead, companies should focus on creating guidelines and establishing mechanisms for community self-regulation.
    • 95. Because traditional cost-savings calculations don’t always apply in social media scenarios, enterprises need to consider new ways to measure return on investment.
  • 38
    Lessons Learned
    A wiki probably isn’t the right tool to use with attention-deficit sales reps
    Execs need to make the time to blog, a least once a week
    Need to show that the “folks in charge” are paying attention to what employees are saying and are putting their ideas into action
    Execs need to check the forums on a regular basis and dive into the conversation as often as possible (and definitely don’t order subordinates to post on your behalf!)
    Make sure you involve Legal from the beginning, while making it clear that you will be proceeding with your plans

    Web 2.0 and Soft Security Guidelines
    There are six soft security policy principles that Helix recommends to its clients for consideration:
    Principle One: Assume good Faith: People are always trying to be helpful: to apply the principle of first trust, confident that the occasional misuse will be overwhelmed by the good
    Principle Two: Peer Review: Your peers can ensure that you don’t damage the system as wikis are strong feedback mechanisms for peer dialogue.
    Principle Three: Forgive and Forget: Even well – intentioned people make mistakes. They don’t need to be permanent.
    Principle Four: Limit Damage. When unpreventable mistakes are made, keep the damage within tolerate limits.
    Principle Five: Fair process. Theory that being transparent and giving everyone a voice are essential management skills.
    Principle Six: Non Violence.Do not violence lest violence seek you.

    Web 2.0 - Sample Blog Policy
    Preface to Sun Blog Policy:
    “Many of us at Sun are doing work that could change the world. We need to do a better job of telling the world. As of now, you are encouraged to tell the world about your work, without asking permission first (but please do read and follow the advice in this note). Blogging is a good way to do this.”
    It’s a Two-Way Street - become part of industry conversations
    Don’t Tell Secrets - common sense at work here
    Be Interesting – about work and about yourself
    Write What You Know - best way to be interesting
    Follow Financial Rules - about what we can and can’t say
    Quality Matters - “complete” and “concise”
    Think About Consequences · it’s all about judgment
    Use Disclaimers · but don’t count them to avoid trouble
