Engage, Collaborate, Innovate - Connect More with Infosys

As organizations, with increasingly diverse, multi-cultural workforces manage and engage a globalized millennial workforce, old school methods like emails and town hall meetings are proving inadequate. Organizations are finding methods for effective employee management as unengaged employees are less happy at work, less productive and at higher risk of attrition.

 

It is critical to create continuous engagement to allow leaders, managers and employees to communicate and collaborate freely. This allows organizations to harness collective knowledge and expertise of a diverse workforce. Social media tools like Yammer, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Facebook and SAP Jam offer platforms to actively engage, recruit and harness the right talent.

 

In this rapidly digitizing world, organizations have to be perceived as promoting open communication, collaboration and free exchange of ideas.

 

Social media-enabled platforms can be effectively leveraged by organizations for:

  • Brand building

  • Attracting talent

  • Recruiting people with the right expertise

  • Finding people with relevant skills(within the workforce)

  • Collaborating on projects outside the organization

  • Innovating and crowdsourcing new ideas

  • Promoting social learning

  • Motivating employees with recognition on social media

 

With SAP Jam as a social collaboration platform - a core product offering from the SAP SuccessFactors HCM suite - Infosys can help you improve communication and collaboration among employees or cross-company external groups. Key goals can be announced, tasks assigned, priorities set and deadlines and auto reminders enabled with ease. Employees can post blogs or upload videos, files and more, which over time will add to a database that can be leveraged for future assignments.

 

We can further integrate learning solutions to collaborate around LMS courses with quick access to instructor-provided course recommendations and schedules to promote social learning. Another key challenge faced by organizations with a globally diversified workforce, is finding the right people with the relevant skill sets and expertise, from both within and outside the workforce. Infosys can help integrate LinkedIn profiles with your HCM solution to leverage existing employees or post job requisitions to prospective talent outside your organization.

 

We, at Infosys, have had remarkable success leveraging social media for our own HCM. Institutionalizing Yammer as the primary social media platform for connecting and collaborating with our employees resulted in significantly improved employee engagement, innovation and sharing of ideas; and in turn, better employee satisfaction and productivity.

 

Updating HCM to deal with the complexities of the evolving workforce is the need of the hour and the edge that organizations currently need in dealing with the changing business environment. From providing the flexibility to recruit, manage and engage the modern workforce to delivering strategic value, Infosys SAP SuccessFactors offerings can significantly help HR be #MoreTogether and contribute to organizational growth.

Infosys is a Gold-level sponsor at SuccessConnect 2017 event to be hosted in Las Vegas. I look forward to meeting you at our booth no. 26, showcase our solutions and share how we can Connect More.
