Why every company should embrace enterprise social networking- The Gluemodel way


With progressive companies increasingly looking for ways to collaborate in real-time and remain digitally responsive, Enterprise social networking platforms are increasing in importance. These benefits offered by enterprise social networks will certainly give the enterprises a level up compared to the rest.

  1. Streamlined communication: Enterprise social networking can significantly reduce inbox clutter, replacing time-consuming communications through e-mail threads through concise public or private discussions through internal social networks.


  1. Real time access to important content: This is one of the primary benefits an internal networking platform provides in a scenario where requirements and issues need fast attention. For example, if an employee needs some important document immediately, he can post the request in the network, just as quickly someone else can respond by posting a link to the location of the document


  1. A company knowledge repository: Enterprise social networks provide an all-access platform for important corporate happenings, be it process memos, training materials, or relevant industry news updates- these platforms can help keep all the employees on the same page. In the case of new recruits, becoming familiar with the company policies or the work culture is easier through such platforms.
