[Webinar] Business and Society: A Time of Transition.

HRVLZ_Webinar_Header-01

 

Theme: Business and Society: A Time of Transition

The ‘and’ in the title indicates a hitherto conventional notion that business and society are separate…and that the relationship between them is one of social contract that is legislative and punitive in spirit. However, the global trends and patterns of the last couple of decades indicate that a fundamental transition is happening – a transition where the ‘And’ is progressively moving towards ‘In and For’. The notion of a ‘Responsible Business’ today is much more widespread and well established. The talk will examine the various facets of what a ‘responsible business’ means and the fine dividing line between business and social responsibility. The central role of people in ushering in deep rooted change of this kind and in steering this crucial transition is also discussed.

About the session:

In-house social platforms can help build new approaches to collaboration, co-creation, and act as a crucial tacit-knowledge attractor & collector. Organizations are increasingly using the secret sauce called “Social Media” in different ways to influence employee engagement and dramatically accelerate problem solving, productivity, and innovation.

Businesses bank on “good ideas” and it’s now within every business’s grasp to dramatically accelerate this process using social media. Good ideas will still originate from talented individuals, but now these ideas can be amplified and expanded with remarkable efficiency. Social Media should become a part of your “business as usual” – by employees becoming the voice of your brands – and that’s when you will say you have achieved optimum employee engagement!
