It's not what you know but who you know that counts. On the job learning as knowledge is needed is the state of today's workplace. So how does talent find answers quickly from people with experience to add impact to their efforts? When your talent uses networks to tap the central connectors, information brokers, peripheral specialists, boundary spanners and network facilitators, their ability to get knowledge quickly ratchets up considerably. Yet, only sixty-five percent of government workplaces use more than one social networking (SN) tool, such as blogs, wikis, RSS feeds and social networking sites. These SN tools help with the current challenges facing today's government agencies such as the brain drain from a retiring workforce, the need to create inter-agency knowledge sharing, and an increased need to imbed talent tools where the work is getting done. The Human Capital Institute (HCI) and Saba partnered in a research initiative to better understand the use and potential of SN tools in the government workplace.
