Social media can inspire employees and generate new ideas when it is used as a collaboration tool.  Communication is no longer limited to a one-way delivery of information; organisations are participating in two-way dialogues and using social media to engage employees in innovative ways. How do you engage employees, create a shared vision, increase productivity and derive benefits from increased employee engagement? Many companies are increasingly concerned about the risks of social media and are reluctunt to introduce it into their organisations.  How do you introduce and embrace the utilization of social media with proper planning and guidelines to ensure success and employee advocates?

1:30PM – 2:40PM – How Social Media is Redefining Activism
Social media has heightened awareness and promoted causes that might not otherwise receive attention. ‘Digital Activism’ means communities can take collective action using social media tools and help campaigns go viral. Due to its scope, digital activism can influence consumer and marketing trends and companies are facing increasing pressure from individuals, communities, NGOs, and activists on a range of sustainability and responsibility issues. How are non-profits using social media to support and promote their cause and engage communities? Can social media create social change? Or does it only reinforce action in the real world? Is digital media a good platform for generating awareness and organizing people?
