We just published some excerpts and insights from our Social Collaboration Survey.
Here you can find more information about what we discovered

In a connected and digital society, expectations and behaviors individuals expose are everyday more influenced by the weight of the communities they belong to. Well beyond the personal dimension, this same social capital is now making its way into organizations, changing work practices, engagement mechanisms and even the drivers behind firms’ existence.

The Social Collaboration Survey 2013 analyses connection, communication, motivation and sharing dynamics among employees to surface the business potential, barriers and acceleration factors towards a new idea of firm. One that is able to address the huge economic challenges of the coming years.

To us, Social Collaboration is

A set of strategies, processes, behaviors and digital platforms that enable groups of individuals inside the organization to connect, interact, share information and work towards a common business goal
