Network-Oriented Workplace – Unconnected Employees Hurt Business Growth

Network-Oriented Workplace – Unconnected Employees Hurt Business Growth

by February 5, 2018

Why a Network-Oriented Workplace? Unconnected employees hurt your business when they fail to see the big picture, don’t’ know how to uncork bureaucratic bottlenecks, and don’t contribute to enterprise-wide results.

Event Date: 02/07/2018 (2:00 pm EST – 3:00 pm EST)

In a survey of 2000 employees from many different organizations, only 20% said, “Yes, I have the network I need to get the job done.”

In this webinar, you’ll explore The 8 Networking Competencies that are needed by almost everyone, in almost every job type, at almost every level and are survival skills for The Network-Oriented Workplace (The NOW).  These skills are learned over time, not overnight.  And we’ll look at how to design an enterprise-wide strategy that supports the growth of employee social acumen to build the organization’s social capital and fuel future growth.
