Jive is Aurea’s enterprise collaboration offering and social intranet solution. Often considered an Enterprise Social Network (ESN), Jive has become a stronghold in many large enterprise organisations as part of their digital workplace efforts.
More than 30,000 businesses across the world are enjoying the benefits of using Workplace by Facebook to engage their employees, partners and suppliers. Many of them have been successful by working with Workplace partners that specialise in designing and building communities. They understand early on that the idea of ‘build it and they will come’ doesn’t create active, vibrant communities.
ESNs are designed to connect people within an organisation. The focus is very much on people and how they interact with each other. ESNs provide a digital location for people to connect with each other, have conversations, and share content in open forums. When they are well-adopted, they give rise to lively employee communities, and a host of benefits that arise from network effects.
