The rich social profiles available in tibbr enables employees to customize the information they want to share with their co-workers and highlight their contributions and expertise to foster better employee connections.
- Driving productivity and efficiency: Deliver relevant information and give employees more input into their daily tasks through contextual activity stream updates. Make the most of the collective intelligence within an organization to build consensus, share best practices, rapidly onboard new employees and solve problems faster.
- Improving visibility, communication and consistency: Break down barriers inherent in today's forms of communication, including email, and create a social network that maps the relationships and roles across a complex and widely dispersed workforce. Managers can now quickly tap available resources to address potential and costly workforce disruptions and operations.
