The way we communicate and share information has changed dramatically — both in our personal and professional lives — as a result of innovation, technology and globalization. Our expectations for how we receive and share information has significantly changed due to the ability to connect with one another through multiple channels – from texts and emails to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Vimeo, Flickr, Instagram, LinkedIn and more.
There is a lot of benefit from connecting with one another and to quickly find information. How this translates to your workplace, however, can be complex. What tools should be used, what processes should be established, what policies are needed, and how is it measured and then refined?
In Brandon Hall Group’s latest episode of HCMx Radio, co-host Mike Cooke and I had an enlightening conversation with our guest, Robert Burnside, Partner, Chief Learning Officer at Ketchum. We discussed with Robert his team’s design and implementation of a highly effective Social Collaborative Learning Program, which won a Gold Award in the 2015 Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards.
In the past six months Robert has overseen 1,700 client-facing employees from around the world participating in a social engagement online program named “Ketchum 2016: The Race to Make It Real.” The program provides background and information on new company strategies aimed at creating PR and communication programs that deploy across all web channels. Selected participants then get to provide input through peer commentary and discussions, debates, and idea submissions. Participants rate each other’s ideas to create a leaderboard of the best ideas.
