Think Different Inside the Hive
Engage the connection between social media and a living social beehive.
Today between 9 and 10 CDT, I will be putting a computer live inside a beehive. The hive is located near Starbuck Manitoba and belongs to an extraordinary beekeeper, Phil Veldhuis. The computer screen will be turned on to a Twitter page set for #orgbee. I would appreciate if you would send a tweet between 9 and 10 with the hashtag #orgbee. Your tweet will show up live in the hive, not sure the bees will read it but each tweet will result in a donation to honey bee health.
I believe we can learn much about engagement, work, and community from honeybees and it would be good to also give back to them for what they can teach us. During the next 12 months this blog will have a series of articles exploring the connections and learning between employee engagement, work, organizations, community, and social media.
Please take one small action. If you use twitter, tweet the bees between 9 and 10 CDT with the hashtag: #orgbee
If you don’t have a twitter account you can also leave a comment here.
