The new internet generation : the Web 2.0 From the letter to the telegram, then from the fax to the email, and now from the email to the chat and the virtual worlds so much ground has been covered in less than hundred years! It is becoming easier to communicate, to get informed and to share everything, everywhere, with everyone and at any time. The world may become unexciting again. In France for example, 60% of the households own a personal computer Facebook Users with an internet access and most often a high speed connection. Most visited websites are web 2.0 sites.

He brings his tools, his accessories and his new habits on his workplace. Do you think he wouldn’t like to find and use 2.0 at work? “Enterprise 2.0 is When the company is impacted by the Web 2.0 the use of emergent social software platforms In opposition of the first internet generation, the Web 2.0 comes from the within companies, users themselves and not from IT specialist or enterprise. That’s why it is not or between very surprising that users develop little by litle the 2.0 uses in their companies and their partners or companies. customers.” That is why, it is important to anticipate impacts and that they would not be Andrew McAfee, overtaken or miss a new trend. May 2008 Our work habits are changing: the work 2.0 Working means share information, expressing opinions, discussing and building documents. New working tools such as Wiki, flows, RSS or collaborative work platforms enable to facilitate and to push forward the interaction between the talents. Being 2.0 at work means collaborating and co-producing : steadily, multitasking, at any time, from anywhere and with everyone into the enterprise. Workplaces are becoming mobile, personalized, adapted to the 2.0 workers’ generation. Our organizations are evolving: the Organization 2.0 The ways to work with the Web 2.0 intensify informal and collaborative “When the relationships between members of the organization, bearing the wirearchy. hierarchical organization from The standard of management must evolve to come up expectations and Taylor merges with maintain the organizational efficiency. today’s wired This redistributing the strengths and supporting the transparency belong to world, it becomes wirearchy” the new deal that the managers have to take into consideration. Jon Husband At last, the ecosystem of the enterprise changed. This new ecosystem is based on a network with its customers, suppliers, and partners. Each person becomes stronger, teams and projects become more nimble, but the organization also become more confused and complicated. Talentys © 2009 / 2
  3. 3. Now is the time to embrace the 2.0 use The Web 2.0 is therefore a colossal exogenous phenomenon that mostly comes in the enterprise as an imposed must. It would be far comfortable and efficient for the companies to take the initiative and to supervise the movement, especially because ROI of 2.0 uses are really important: The enterprise • Very high costs killing 2.0 is more a • Development of internal and external collaboration frame of mind • Increase of innovation and creativity than product. • Capitalization of competencies and knowledge Dion Hinchcliffe More than an uniform culture, The development of 2.0’s uses in the enterprise is based on a dynamic the 2.0 is a way progress method. It is possible to profit more from the new technologies of acting based than the competitors, to carry out successfully integration of the Y on real values: generation (friendly 2.0 users), and also to get out sooner and not too badly Confidence Recognition placed of the current crisis. For all these reasons, it is not surprising that a Transparence lot of enterprises are now testing and deploying 2.0’s uses. The HR Direction as leading role for 2.0 transformation Goals of a 2.0 transformation are not only based on the diffusion of 2.0 tools, HR leaders have to help the enterprise to reach his targets by innovating and caring out better and more cheaply strategy and key processes of the enterprise. How important these targets may be? They must be completed by two other objectives to assess properly targeted change: Entreprise 2.0 and high • Develop the Talent Capital in the organization. numbers • Develop the enterprise culture SupportCentral is the collaborating environment of In conclusion goals of a 2.0 transformation are very significant for HR General Electric: Department.

  4. 4. How to make it happen ? The HR Direction’s have a very important role to play to define guidelines, processes, actors, cultures and systems... Moreover, HR Direction can increase 2.0 organization’s appropriation, to increase the probability of reaping benefits of it. To become 2.0, a company needs the whole enterprise to be more dynamic in terms of change management, with specificities linked to the practices themselves and to their impacts. To proceed successfully, Talentys has already identified four main components, based on the SI2C method. Firstly, the Sense gives an orientation to the transfer into an enterprise 2.0 and motivates the actors. Secondly, the Interactions put the 2.0 use in action. Thirdly, the Confidence creates favourable conditions and lastly, the Contents feed them until they turn into tangible results. The solution is in the specific way to do in each enterprise, and in the actions completed - particularly but not only - by the HR Direction to orientate / stimulate, promote / give values, coordinate/capitalize. The HR Direction will also have to support the transformation of the management and the creation of new jobs like the community management. Finally, managing the transfer into a 2.0 enterprise corresponds to expand the appropriation of 2.0 uses acting on these four considerations and producing a Return on Investment for the enterprise and the activists.

  5. 5. The HR processes mutations 2.0 uses are particularly useful to modernize talent management processes in the enterprise. The most important is to reach positive impacts on the Talent capital in order to give to the talent management a new wind, because a new HR generation is on the market.

  6. 6. In a 2.0 enterprise employee completes and updates his profile, joins communities, and builds step by step his own network, working on his e- reputation and internal employability. He wants to be recognized, to have flexible working hours and an individual development plan which is corresponding to him and makes him feel able to come to grips with. “The enterprise 2.0 is a talented organization. It reveals, mobilizes, develops and recognizes its talents, thanks and through the 2.0 tools and practices, making it possible to innovate more, By this way, personal experiences of the Talents with HR function are carry out better changing and it is a really good deal for both of them. HR processes change, the processes and the strategy... and work change, the organization is growing up. The relationship between the to increase the employee and the employer is changing. It is an opportunity to fulfil the willing to work expectation of talents belonging to the Generation Y. together.” David Guillocheau Growing up to a HR Direction 2.0 The HR processes won’t be adaptable to the Web 2.0 without any action, and people in charge of the HR management are very important in this transformation. It is essential for the HR function to consider with attention its own future, all the more so as the Web 2.0 is a unique opportunity to improve its position and its values’ scheme in the enterprise. Appropriating the 2.0 use In this organizational transformation, HR Directors and their teams play an important and “risky” role. Even if it is not mandatory to be an expert at using the Web 2.0, it is a must to discover its use and to discuss about the linked consequences, in order to give an orientation and to steer the deployment of the 2.0 use. Collective and individual workshops will help to give a sense, to promote the interactions and confidence and to stimulate the content’s production within the HR Direction. Initialize HR practice communities A HR community is an excellent way to deploy the 2.0 use within a bigger round of HR actors. And there are many subjects: recruitment, diversity, HR 2.0, annual appraisal, high potential management… Many themes will enable to associate other HR processes’ actors, as the managers for example.

  7. 7. Put some 2.0 in the HR processes We mapped out a lot of HR processes that can be improved through the 2.0 use. You can identify the most interesting progress’ opportunities and go quickly ahead to a test phase bringing together a team of internal HRIS clients. In a first step, it is possible to make a dummy run of HR processes 2.0 that meet the needs and the scope defined. In a second step, the attempt can be tested in well-chosen pilot projects and finally applied globally. Evolve the HRIS The HRIS will evolve with Wikis, Blogs, social networks and other technologies 2.0, so to meet the requirement of the HR services. By establishing a unique and customized HR portal, the HRIS will become perceptively more efficient and user-friendly. There are a lot of possible technological solutions. In fact, further than the solutions created for the enterprise 2.0 (E.g. BlueKiwi, Confluence …), the solutions adapted to the talent management are evolving through new 2.0 functionalities like Taleo and the coming Oracle PeopleSoft 9.1. To begin, we advise to realize a participative 2.0 HR diagnostic. A workshop with all key actors will enable to improve the existing knowledge level of the 2.0 use. During this workshop, the goals and appropriated 2.0 processes will be defined, and an action plan will be built, based on the SI2C method. In brief, everything will be done to make it possible as it should be, and to begin quickly in good conditions. You are waiting for the White Book and want to be aware in the meantime?
