One client quoted it as “Yammer on steroids”. People are worried about social media impacting the working lives of employees, and impacting productivity. This is not the case. When a business embraces social, employees feel more connected to other employees. The usual hierarchical gaps in an organisation become less apparent. Opinions are shared, non-work activities grow and people feel part of the organisation.
For a share workspace, it encourages business to work with other businesses within the vicinity. In encourages people to talk, arrange social activities, sell, advise and grow. For the workspace a community feel is encouraged, making it a better place to work, attracting new businesses.
