  9. 9. According to Harvard Business Review,“radical transparency”is the idea that everyone should know everything. When organizations use this concept, they have the potential to improve business performance dramatically. HBR outlines the following 3 primary areas radical transparency would affect: FOCUS: When individuals' progress and priorities are made evident at the beginning of each quarter, goals are clearer and employees can set visible objectives. ENGAGEMENT: Employee progress is better when it is obviously tied to their performance because it increases a commitment to the corporate mission. This is often achieved by setting benchmarks and rewards to strive for. GROWING TALENT: If high-performing employees are rewarded for their work and it is made transparent to newer members of a department or company, the recruits will be motivated to mirror a similar work ethic.

  11. 11. Achieving Company Goals with Socialcast
  12. 12. TECHNICAL EMPLOYEES 2,000 1 3M calls its Socialcast community “Spark.” “Socialcast supports technical collaboration in two important ways. First, it helps us share and discuss content available on our‘knowledge at rest’resources (3M’s wikis and massive stores of database-stored information). Second, it facilitates‘knowledge in motion’(those dynamic bits of data and information you find in the activity streams in Spark1 ).By capturing and sharing knowledge in motion, Spark helps 3M technical employees find a more direct path to information and expertise that can help solve problems in real time.” —John Woodworth Tech Forum Chair-Elect and Head of IT Lab Collaboration GOAL: KNOWLEDGE IN MOTION 10
  13. 13. HOW SOCIALCAST HELPS ACHIEVE THE GOAL 3M technical employees found that Spark allows them to ask questions and get responses in real time, saving employees hours of time locating resources across their global offices. Right out of the box, Socialcast satisfied one of Woodworth's main goals: to create a global laboratory environment. Because the company operates in 65 countries, with 35 labs, Spark also brings members closer together in a community. 11
  14. 14. NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES 40,000 “We chose Socialcast for its ability to integrate with other business systems through its Reach extensions and because of the robust privacy and security features that gave us the confidence our data would be protected. Ironically, what SharePoint misses is the ability to have easily discovered interactive discussions and organize around groups of common interest, and that’s where Socialcast really shines.” —Jeff Ross Community Manager for Enterprise Social Media GOAL: SECURE COLLABORATION 12
  15. 15. HOW SOCIALCAST HELPS ACHIEVE THE GOAL For security purposes, Humana elected to have its Social- cast deployment on-premise to keep its highly sensitive data secure, and to ensure that it stayed in compliance with the health care industry’s regulations. In addition, one of the most successful aspects of the Socialcast initiative at Humana has been the integration of social capabili- ties within other enterprise applications via Socialcast Reach extensions. Humana has created more than 20 different apps to help mea- sure and monitor employee engagement on its Socialcast com- munity, called "Buzz." 13
  16. 16. GOAL: BETTER COMMUNICATION SAVES LIVES NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES 8,000 “We needed a tool that allowed our employees based in the field to connect and help each other in time-sensitive circumstances... Socialcast allows PSI staff to form groups based on their focus area but also their interests and expertise...A colleague working on malaria might also have expertise in HIV prevention. This colleague, as a member of the HIV group, might be able to lend valuable insight and assistance to HIV staff workers even though his/her offi- cial focus is in malaria treatment. Without Socialcast, these connections would never have existed.” —Marie-Laure Curie Deputy Director of Learning and Performance 14
  17. 17. HOW SOCIALCAST HELPS ACHIEVE THE GOAL Socialcast exposes detailed individual profile information, helping each member understand the expertise of everyone in the com- munity and allowing PSI to maximize the use of everyone’s skills and expe- rience. 15
  18. 18. GOAL: PRODUCTIVITY GAINS 2 SAS calls its Socialcast community “Hub.” NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES 13,349 “The immediate return on investment is realized in the time it would have taken that employee to scour internal databases for the information. Undeniably, the Hub2 saves time and effort and increases customer and employee satisfaction.” —Karen Lee Sr. Director of Internal Communications 16
  19. 19. Percentage who agree/strongly agree that they feel adequately informed about the company from direct inter- nal sources 2007 2009 2010 A 2010 SAS employee survey revealed that, after implementing Socialcast, the company saw an increase of positive reactions from employees. Employee Susan Rainsberry had a Dataflux question that she couldn’t find an answer to; when she asked the question on the Hub, she had the information she needed in 45 minutes. 100% 80% 60% 40% 20% 0% 66 91 93 HOW SOCIALCAST HELPS ACHIEVE THE GOAL 17

  21. 21. GOAL: INCREASING REVENUE THROUGH INCREASED TRANSPARENCY NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES 1,850 “By sharing profits, strategies, and successes publicly through Connect3 , it has ultimately generated more revenue for Archant...When one sales group posts wins, other sales teams respond with their numbers, each trying to exceed results of other teams.” —Chris Thompson Head of Development 3 Archant calls its Socialcast community “Connect.” 19
  22. 22. HOW SOCIALCAST HELPS ACHIEVE THE GOAL Connect users get the word out as soon as technical issues are resolved, so everyone can be alerted without having to individually contact the help desk for updates—ultimately saving Archant time while adding capacity to handle more issues in a timely manner. The Human Resources team shares new policy changes and important corporate information on the Connect community. Now, they have a way to reach those employees who weren't opening emails. 20
  23. 23. NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES 5,500 “FactSet has very smart people—always has. The greatest value lies in taking advantage of the collective knowledge of our entire company. With Socialcast, we have a social connection tool we can’t function without. Not only do you get a wider and more global perspective when you ask a question and get an answer, but that single conversation benefits everyone.” —Meredith Binder Vice President, Director of Global Marketing GOAL: SOCIALLY CONNECTING PEOPLE 21
  24. 24. After launching its Socialcast community, FactSet employees began to use the platform instead of mass emails to share knowledge. Socialcast Groups were established around business functions, office activities, and personal interests and are now a must-check resource to find informa- tion and answers to questions. The result is that Socialcast has become a one-to-many global knowledge-sharing expe- rience. HOW SOCIALCAST HELPS ACHIEVE THE GOAL 22
  25. 25. NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES 120,000 “We were driven to connect the organization with itself and realized enterprise social networking was the solution. I can truly say after more than 2 years that we have achieved an official internal communications channel. We connect daily with people from the U.S., India, China, and Brazil. Without Social- cast, it would not be possible." —Dennis Agusi Global Internal Communications GOAL: UNITE EMPLOYEES AROUND A MISSION AND VISION 23
  26. 26. HOW SOCIALCAST HELPS ACHIEVE THE GOAL Set up as a group, Philips' All Employee Jam4 was a project that launched on May 28, 2012, and ran through June 15, 2012, to encourage employees to share how they personally interpreted the company's mis- sion and vision and how it's being brought to life in their daily lives. With Socialcast, Philips has created a new way to work and ultimately advanced its corporate culture so that it could continue to innovate and grow as a company. 4 Philips called an internal crowdsourcing project launched in Socialcast "All Employee Jam." 24
