When should a Firm Engage in Social Business?
Anneke Zwart, Student (University), Netherlands, Member
Businesses are increasingly attempting to participate in social business. In order to create value by using social approaches, Koster, Lesser and Cortada argue that 2 crucial questions should be asked before engaging in such social business. These two questions are the following:
  1. Customers: Does social media enable your company to find the right consumers, enhance their online experiences and to get to know customers’ ideas and desires?
  2. Employees: Does your social business strategy enables your representatives to search the world for new experiences, knowledge and skills and to learn and apply what is learned?
