We’ve been discussing the people management implications of social media and technology today – how does it impact in your workplace & are you using it to your advantage?
What will the “workplace” be like in the next 3, 5 or even 10 years and how do we as people managers, and developers of staff teams need to adapt to keep ahead of the requirements?
In a world of immediacy and instant communication how do we keep apace with new staff entering the workforce? How do we engage and communicate in the most effective ways?
How do we ensure that social media and technology is used to the business advantage and is not acting as a distraction or hindrance to effective work?
How do we ensure that our workforce are enhancing a strong positive company reputation through their communication with the wider online community?
What do we do (perhaps also what can we do?) if people are misusing the technology and / or social media?
How much will the conventional models of management need to change as those new employees progress in their careers and become managers? What will their expectations be in terms of employee response times, employee availability, multi-tasking and work-life balance?
We have lots of interesting ideas – we’d love to hear your thoughts.
