The Social Organisation

Today, organisations succeed or fail - not because of individual performance, but because of overall group performance. While the war for talent might bring great people into a company, victory only comes from the right organisation of this talent and its networks.

In a hyper-connected world where the workforce is ‘always-on’, organisations should aim to create value from the connections, relationships and conversations between their employees to drive higher performance and achieve greater results.

Leaders and HR departments therefore need to shift their focus from individuals to the teams and networks in their organisations, from knowledge workers to relationship workers, therefore enabling their organisation to compete through employee relationships.

Join this insightful session with Jon Ingham to find out how you can make your organisation greater than the sum of all its parts.

Based on his book The Social Organisation (which boasts a foreword from Prof. Dave Ulrich), Jon - one of the UK’s top HR Thinkers - will outline how you too can create a more socially connected and allied workforce to help drive collaboration, teamwork, sharing of ideas and increased organisational performance.

Through this session, you will learn: 

  • How and why HR and others responsible for talent management need to foster and develop social capabilities
  • Practical guidance for developing higher quality connections and social capital by improving the alignment and effectiveness of organisational architectures, including through workplace design
  • How HR and related professionals can identify and implement appropriate changes throughout the whole employee life cycle: including initial recruitment and job design, social learning, performance management, employee retention, talent management, organisation development and the role of social media and other technology as well as social analytics
  • A process for identifying which of your group types are the highest priority and how to choose the activities that will best suit your organisation’s required relationships
