May 20, 2014 – Bersin by Deloitte, a leading research and advisory firm
empowering Human Resource (HR) organizations to drive bottom-line impact, today
launched Communities, a powerful new specialist-based network that connects
WhatWorks® members with professional peers who have relevant experience and
knowledge to solve specific HR, talent and learning challenges.
makes it easy for WhatWorks members to connect and tap the real-world knowledge
needed to address many of the challenges that are so common as the economy
recovers, such as attracting top-tier talent, increasing engagement, reducing
turnover and increasing productivity,” said Chris Howard, head of product
development, Bersin by Deloitte, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “What makes
Communities special and different from other social networks is that they are
supported by Bersin by Deloitte’s research and give participants access to
thousands of industry peers who are also WhatWorks members.”
who join Communities are asked to provide an online profile that is visible to
other Communities members. They may then join and participate in the
Communities that correspond to their areas of professional focus. Conversations
that members post will be distributed to other Community members via a
Communities Daily Digest. Community members who choose to follow a conversation
will receive alerts when other members post to the conversation. In this way,
participants may receive timely feedback on issues of current interest, and
stay in touch with what their peers are posting on the topic. Such networking
also enables participants to build their own personal “brand” within a network
of professionals with similar interests.
Jana Cook, talent
specialist, ATB Financial, said that she looks forward to drawing on the
capabilities of fellow WhatWorks members participating in Communities.
“When I'm faced
with trying to create a new program or have a large stumbling block I'll
certainly post to Communities,” said Cook. “The vast array of people and
experience on Communities is great.”
Deloitte Communities correspond to each of the five practice areas that
comprise the Bersin WhatWorks membership. They include:

those things that are keeping me up at night,” he said.
