Interesting study of social media in the workplace in the UK & US
I came across this interesting graphic while catching up on my RSS reading from my holiday. It was a survey (link below) of 300 managers and employees from companies across the US and the UK, looking at attitudes and views on social media in the workplace.
Interestingly the employees of larger companies seems to appreciate the power of social media for employee engagement and attraction, more than the smaller companies. [As I don't know the breakdown on the survey it makes it difficult to drill that down more]. Not sure I have seen that, but I am sure others will tell me different!
The other surprise for me is the UK vs US figures. Again a small sample I know, but is there really that much difference between the US and the UK regarding social media in the workplace? That is something I would really like to explore further at some stage in the future.
Anyway, the graphic makes for some interesting observations about social media and workplace perceptions.
