The connected workplace is the future. By implementing social technology and processes, people are able to share information, communicate and be overall more flexible when it comes to performing their daily duties. In regards to the latter, a connected workplace allows for telecommuting, which would also save companies a ton of money in terms of equipment, rent and more.
In addition to these points, a connected workplace improves collaboration, work-of-mouth marketing and productivity in ways that some will find surprising. For instance, the infographic detailing the benefits of a connected workplace ends by stating that "implementing social technologies to improve productivity could creates $1.7 - $2.2 trillion in value." Those are some very impressive figures, to say the least.
