The presentation focuses on the business value highlighted by the members of the 140+ Communities of Practice of Schneider Electric (called “Communities@Work”), their sponsors and the engagement of their leaders.
It presents the framework of the 140+ communities It will detail the results of the 2013 and 2014 surveys on 15,000 community members, one focused on employee engagement, the other one focused on the perceived value, represented by the voting for the coveted "Active Community Labels".
It presents the business value expressed by the sponsors of the labelled "active communities" during interviews.
It presents a research made on the relationship between the engagement of the members on the communities, the perceived value of the community by the members, the activity of the community on the enterprise social collaboration platform, the physical and hierarchical distance between its members, the diversity of the members (working entity, job code, country…), the profile of the community leader (age, seniority, gender, manager status…).
The Research demonstrates how transverse and independent the communities are from the organization. The activity of the communities is decoupled from the distance and from the profile of the community leader. It shows the factors that influence the recommendations of the communities by their members.
