The Enterprise Engagement Alliance (EEA) and PollStream, a leading social software firm, recently announced a partnership aimed at promoting and improving employee engagement best practices. Specifically, PollStream will lend its voice to the EEA as a frequent contributor to the coalition’s portal and blog, providing insight and proven best practices on how the intelligent use of social software can increase employee engagement and earn discretionary effort.
“Engagement is a going concern for any organization motivated to recruit and retain their best employees,” says Stephen Green, president and founder of PollStream. “The real value in an engaged, connected, collaborative organization is what we call social capital – an asset as rich as an organization’s investments in equipment or training and just as integral to productivity.” PollStream’s social software tools will be integrated into the EEA’s portal, a move that will naturally enrich and personalize the user experience for EEA members and those that are new to the coalition.
Allan Schweyer, chairman of the EEA, welcomes the opportunity to use Pollstream’s polling technology to help the business world better understand how to implement engagement strategies at the practical level. “We believe that Pollstream provides a unique opportunity for us to collect invaluable information from the front-lines of management who face the issue of engagement on a daily basis,” Schweyer says.
