How can you tell your boss that your organisation is lagging behind in the adoption of internal social media? Or how do you know how well you are succeeding compared to other organisations in your sector?
The SMiLE Index (Social Media in the Large Enterprise) is the most comprehensive and accurate analysis available – and it’s free for all to use.
Engage for Success, a movement committed to the idea that there is a better way to work has launched a Social Media and Digital Engagement Network dedicated to applying new social enterprise tools in the quest for building employee engagement.
The first part of their work is to support the SMiLE Index as the diagnostics tool for you to use to benchmark your own organisation against others on the digital index.
The Index helps you assess where your organisation is on its journey towards a collaborative internal social network.
Are your colleagues co-creating across the silos or are they stifled by the hierarchy? How do you show your boss that you are behind the curve and losing the competitive advantage that an employee social network can give you?
So far 120 organisations have completed the Index Questionnaire, which takes about 10 minutes.
The experts at SMiLE will then translate your scores into a place on the Index so you can see how you are doing against your peers.
See whether yours is in the AGILE Zone – the area where organisations are truly collaborative, helping themselves to adapt to new market conditions through rapid and constant innovation – because they talk to each other more and share ideas more readily.
Perhaps you have the technology but are not exploiting them or your staff want to collaborate but do not have technology to do so.
How the Index works
The Index measures the extent to which your organisation has the technology in place to collaborate against your tendency to collaborate.
We estimate that around 55% of large enterprises are still dabbling with a social network but have not seriously put any resources or effort into getting people onboard.
Or maybe you have a spirit and history of collaboration but you are yet to turbocharge it through collaborative technologies.
Or perhaps you have a network – either Yammer, Chatter, Socialcast, Jive or similar, but people are not very active on it?
Find out where you stand by answering the 6 questions in the SMiLE Index; we will work out where you sit on the Index and publish the results.
