About six months into the social intranet emplementation process, it was clear that lots of employees were reading but not contributing. Our team felt this was a legitimate way to for employees to use Jive but we still aimed to encourage them to start contributing content and participating.


In this episode we highlighted some of the other types of activities in our 'Global Village' intranet and were careful not to label the 'readers' as 'lurkers'. I'm pleased to say that many of our 'readers' are now becoming 'collaborators' and 'contributors'.


Enjoy this episode.
