Microsoft Study: Employees More Productive With Social Tools Yet Companies Still Block Them (Infographic)

Microsoft Study: Employees More Productive With Social Tools Yet Companies Still Block Them (Infographic) | International Schools | Scoop.it
II’ve been thinking lately of corporate America’s social lobotomy. Its disconnect between the wants and the want-nots. According to a recentMicrosoft survey conducted by research firm Ipsos, nearly 50% of employees believe social tools make them more productive while more than 30% of companies restrict the use or undervalue them. For me, this is a form of social malpractice perpetuated by the cold, hard but secure hand of command and control management..

We have the challenge of how to use social media productively with our students and teachers and limit the distraction part of their use

Billy R Bennett's curator insight, June 9, 2013 4:27 PM

Social technology must become an integral part of aligning people - Yes, I understand the argument and fear - however, this is one fear we must learn to conquer as we learn how to allow social tools to become a part of our work process not an evil to be avoided.  The winners of the future will win by mastering a social tools as a part of the workplace

Max Swisher makes a good point about "lolspeak", and his mom shows that his point is valid. To me, it shows that due to technology, we may be going through another evolutionary stage of language, in a manner of speaking, so it should be interesting to see how this resolves itself so that "lolspeak" is actually understood clearly by all. Interesting article.
