Corporate Social Strategy

The world of work is changing… Is your business changing with it?

Professional social networks are popping up in the most respected corporations across every major industry.

The difficulty is recognizing how to select and manage the right toolset to fit with your corporate culture in

a way that serves your organization’s unique business processes. Whether you're looking to expand your

SharePoint platform by integrating with Yammer or Sitrion's (formerly NewsGator) Social Workplace,

or are looking for an independent portal, like Jive, there are a range of different options available.

Ready to make the jump to social, but don't know where to start? Synergy can help your business understand which toolset suits your needs and work with you to build a launch and adoption strategy to meld seamlessly with the way your business works.

The goal is to improve collaboration and communication across teams, departments and geographical locations. Professional social networks allow disparate colleagues, even those they may not know personally, to share information with in new ways which may not be immediately clear to their managers and business leaders.

More rewarding outcomes happen through collaboration:

  • Better Intellectual capital use
  • Knowledge sharing and capture
  • Enhanced ability to locate subject matter experts
  • Innovation and idea generation
  • Increased transparency of information
  • Reduction in the use of email for corporate communications
  • Breakdown of information silos across the organization
  • Increased productivity
  • Improved job satisfaction and company loyalty

In addition to out of the box features available in SharePoint, Yammer, Sitrion, or Jive, Synergy can help your company leverage connections to publicly available social solutions like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, developing an all-encompassing social solution.

Synergy is proud to be partnered with the following leaders in the social and collaboration space:

  • Sitrion Gold Partner, certified in the Sitrion Engagement Scorecard and Adoption Framework
  • Jive Consulting Partner
