re: Salesforce Acquires Rypple For Social Employee Performance Management
I thought of this yesterday, while speaking with IBM VP of social business Jeff Schick for an upcoming story. One of the things I asked him about was the cultural shift that the use of social applications will require in companies and in employee behavior.
The ability to collaborate effectively with colleagues has always been held up as a quality valued in employees, but now it can and likely will be quantitatively (and, hopefully, qualitatively) measured. It would be interesting to hear from companies about expectations for social behavior among employees.
