Business Knowledge Within Your Company

Creating Business Value Through Corporate Social Networking

One of the most valuable properties of an organization is the knowledge, each and every employee comes with. Sharing and exchanging knowledge within the company helps everyone to work more efficiently and to increase business success in the end.

Knowledge sharing gets more important, but also more challenging, the more people are working for a company. Especially, in larger and international working companies it is difficult to bring people and information together, so they can get their work done more easily.

How would you find out, which of your colleagues can answer you a specific question or is able to support you with a project? You probably wouldn’t write an e-mail to the whole company, would you?

The business social networking platform Microsoft Yammer is the answer to this challenge. It offers a convenient way to start conversations and exchange information with the entire company. Here are three common challenges Yammer helps you easily to solve.
