Internal social media networks can boost productivity

Many companies have adopted social media policies, fearing the networks will distract staff members and reduce productivity.

Many companies have adopted social media policies, fearing the networks will distract staff members and reduce productivity.

However, creating online communities as part of their employee rewards programs can demonstrate trust to workers and boost output. The Financial Post asserts social media can improve communication and collaboration as well as enhance data management and engagement.

Internal social networks offer a variety of benefits to firms. For one, they are quicker and easier than using traditional email, which can be limited to a few people and disallow for group chats. This is particularly helpful for business management.

"Middle managers are important, expensive and skilled individuals who spend an inordinate amount of their time communicating in email, looking for data and attending meetings," the news source explains. "Improving their effectiveness can significantly enhance organizational productivity and decision-making."

Companies can seek help from consultants as well as IT professionals to create a network that streamlines communication and boosts productivity among workers.
