Carrying on from Monday’s blog post, we continue the summary of the workshop event based on Social Media and the Ideas Scheme. Following Chris Bolton’s presentation, James Shewry of HSBC then gave an overview of their Ideas Scheme and highlighted the successes delivered since they moved to a social media platform in 2011. This highly informative presentation explained the benefits of allowing employees to collaborate and comment on ideas raised and demonstrated how implemented ideas had increased.

Following lunch, the group discussed how Social Media is used within organisations followed by group exercises on how you can link your own Social Media systems to your ideas programme.
Finally, to round the day off, the group developed an action plan to use when back within their organisations.
We would like to thank all the delegates who took part in the day, I am sure they will all agree it was fantastic session and everyone took part would have taken something informative and beneficial to their organisation away with them.
