As more companies implement cross functional teams, using social media as a communication platform is an obvious choice. However, is it a distraction or a tool for better productivity? In December 2015, Nicola Strong ran a workshop that took a closer look at some of the considerations for engaging staff, developing social media policies and maintaining momentum within an enterprise social network (ESN). For example:

  • How has social media grown over time and what’s the psychology behind it all?
  • What are some of the choices of enterprise social network in the workplace?
  • What success stories and lessons can we share in making ESNs work?
  • Building your social media communications strategy
  • Developing a social media policy for your organisation
  • How can we utilise this engagement in an employment context?
  • What is the projected future for social media in the workplace?


The participants at the workshop developed a imindmap to include the many aspects of developing an effective generic social media guideline.

This workshop was delivered in partnership with the Association for Business Psychology.
