Community - Take 2
Thanks to lots of great thinkers sharing ideas last week on Talent Talk Cafe we had a rich conversation around community and came up with several guiding thoughts. Community is: a group with a common interest; a place to gain wisdom and knowledge; where those with different experiences and knowledge come together for a common good; giving back; where members get back more than they put in; creating and furthering relationships; respect; being; a web of inclusiveness; trust; and, they must be intentional.
This week we'll frame the community discussion around building a social networking strategy that begins by first establishing a deliberate community focus.
So, given the guiding thoughts listed above on community, what steps would you take to design a talent community for recruitment in your business/industry? What are the most important actions a company needs to take to establish community? And, what should the expectations be relative to time to see a return on investing in building talent communities?
