More firms expected to explore social software as part of worker engagement

While many companies are already using employee reward and recognition programs to boost motivation and increase productivity, the new year is expected to introduce a new wave of engagement tools and strategies.

While many companies are already using employee reward and recognition programs to boost motivation and increase productivity, the new year is expected to introduce a new wave of engagement tools and strategies.

Worker engagement and recognition is expected to become more embedded in technology in 2013, according to Forbes. Using applications, widgets, mobile and other devices, companies are believed to be enhancing their behavior management tactics.

Social software is one increasingly popular option among firms, especially as a younger workforce uses more networks to stay in touch with family and friends. The challenge then for businesses will be figuring out how to integrate social networks into business practices, the news source explains.

"Enterprise social software will no doubt continue to create a more engaged workforce that is actually getting work done instead of just talking about it," Forbes explains. "Social has become the one-stop shop for communications, learning, feedback, documentation and more… expect this trend to grow as we continue to change the culture of business from compliance to collaboration."

One way businesses can begin the process of implementing social reward structures is by working with staff members to identify the ways in which they use networks and how this could be translated to operations.
