Individual employees can reap a clear benefit from participating in online social networks. The companies for which they work also benefit from smarter employees who can reach out for help that can speed up the completion of projects. New research suggests that the company’s advantage goes deeper depending on how many employees participate robustly in these networks. In this short midweek episode, Neville and Shel share the research and discuss what businesses need to do to tap into that benefit.
