From collaboration to engagement

Stuart McRae / IBM

Have you noticed that the world is starting to talk about employee engagement more than collaboration? This comes from a shift of focus from IT to Line of Business, as what business leaders want to hear about is the impact of collaboration: the new insights it brings about their customers; the way it makes organisations more agile; the alignment it enables between organisational goals and employee activities; and the way it speeds up decision making. This session looks at how modern collaboration and social intranets enable employee engagement, and so can deliver the differentiated benefits that businesses need to compete in the digital world.
