SOS is just one of the collaborative initiatives used by WorkGob, to engage employees both on and off the clock. Tapping into social media, in a familiar thread style where colleagues can communicate on shared work interests and information, while receiving and responding to posts from all levels of the organization. WorkGob has created a platform where staff, managers and leaders can all communicate at different or shared levels across a company, or just send an SOS to their colleagues. Additionally, the CEO could send out an important strategic company message which can be picked up instantly, can receive feedback, or create conversations. To help WorkGob’s platform expand, these facilities are being provided free for life for users who use the code FREE2016 when registering before the end of March 2016.
PMI states in their report “The Essential Role of Communications” that “Ineffective communications is the primary contributor to project failure one third of the time, and had a negative impact on project success more than half the time.”
The workplace has changed in the modern world. It has become more intense where employers expect a larger pound of flesh for their money, and this is further impeded by a skill base and knowledge base that is greatly reduced as a result of a higher turnover of employees that the modern workplace creates. When adding the complications of more products, faster changing technology, and information overload from all directions, the task of effective communication becomes daunting. But it needn’t be. Inclusive communication trumps uni-directional communication because it creates buy in and involvement. Staff at all levels will always be more engaged when they are involved in the process. By using social media message threads that ask for responses including votes and comments, effective multi-directional communication is achieved. The foundation for genuine employee engagement begins with extensive and effective communication but vertically and horizontally through the organization writes Mahan Tavakoli, regional vice president and chief diversity officer at Dale Carnegie training.
Whereas mobile communications and Internet will never be the be all and end all of communication, with every adult you know owning a smartphone, it is a form of communication that should not be avoided. WorkGob taps into social media on internet and mobile web, where colleagues can be fed company data such as product and promotion information, interact with colleagues at all levels, ask for help and support and even vote on matters posted by the company. SOS will remain the top post until dismissed. And during social discussions with work associates, staff can share vital product information or strategic plans that can be stuck to the top of their posts until acknowledged.
