We're All Celebrities Now: Can Micro-Endorsements Become The New Klout Perk?

We're All Celebrities Now: Can Micro-Endorsements Become The New Klout Perk? | Employee Engagement Made Easy! | Scoop.it
A startup called SocialRank has a new idea about how brands can find and reward the social media users who are most important to them.
Kudos's insight:

This is very interesting. We also believe that people should have a way to manage their careers and reputation. The old way, up to now, has been all about the employer holding the strings to your reviews and reputation.

 

We see it as a win win if they employee can receive  social recognition at work that can be promoted into their other social media - LinkedIn, Google +, Twitter, etc...

 

Then the employees  recognition and reputation can help benefit the employer by signalling the company is a great place to work and the employe gets to promote their individual contributions and skills. 

 

This is still a bit of an uphill battle for some firms who do not want anyone to know their people are great. 

 

What is interesting is if you do promote a great culture, treat you people well, engage  and recognize your team - they will be inclined to not just stay but to evangelize your company as a great place to work. 

 

Beats hiding them from the world and hoping they will stay.

Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast

Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast | Employee Engagement Made Easy! | Scoop.it

Culture eats strategy for breakfast, technology for lunch, and products for dinner, and soon thereafter everything else too.Why? Because company culture, a concept pioneered by Edgar Schein, is the operationalizing of an organization’s values. Culture guides employee decisions about both technical business decisions and how they interact with others. Good culture creates an internal coherence in actions taken by a very diverse group of employees.

Kudos's insight:

This is a great article, it gets to the heart of the matter of the  what , how and why we are developing Kudos.

 

“Culture eats strategy for breakfast, technology for lunch, and product for dinner" - this quote describes how a great culture holds a team together and guides them.

 

It is easy to have a engagement success when everything is going right. It also can make a company lazy, wasteful and forget what made them successful in the first place.

 

What separates the good from the great companies is how everyone reacts when the going gets tough, the unexpected happens or great challenges are ahead.

 

If you focus on your culture, define your mission, vision and values and live it everyday - the company with a good culture will persevere and overcome challenges because their people want to be there, want to succeed, and care.

 

So in the end you create engagement by focusing on your culture and you have  a better chance of being successful if you have highly engaged team members.

 

Kudos purpose is to help companies create the  culture  they want by adding a healthy does of appreciation with enhanced communication. 

 

You market to your clients and try to get them to believe in your product - market to your team and try to get them, to believe in your company.

J'aime beaucoup ces propos :

"“You can’t complain here,” Tamara explained. “If you see something wrong, you must fix it. We say it is a great opportunity to come up with a solution, and this is where many of our best programs have come from. Anything can be changed. We aren’t victim to anyone. We own the culture.”"

Culture matters and it matters immensely!

Tobias Beckwith's curator insight, July 14, 2014 11:27 AM

This seems to be a theme for my day... this is the third place I"ve encountered the idea, and it's not even 9am yet. When we seek to create change in the world, all too often we ignore the most powerful thing working against us - the culture in which we're working. So how can you work with that? Make your change "fit" the culture? Find ways to change the culture itself?
