It’s a thorny issue, as unless your intranet is adopted, it will have little chance of adding much value to your business. But getting your adoption strategy right is equally challenging since it's a balancing act of so many internal and external factors.
Our Masterclass will provide a wealth of practical advice to help you, whether you’re at the start of your intranet journey or you’re just about to launch a new one.
And there’s no better way to learn these lessons for your own projects than to hear from those who have succeeded. We’re thrilled to announce an expert panel of digital workplace managers for Thursday’s session:
Majbritt Rohde Murmann, Intranet Manager at Velux
On Thursday, Intranet Manager Majbritt will be sharing Velux’s story of launching a new solution to a global organization made up of thousands of widely spread employees. With built in Yammer capabilities, translation functions and targeted content, we’ll learn exactly how successful the new digital workplace has been since launch and how they’re managing to maintain superb adoption rates.
If you haven’t already seen the animated video that the world’s leading manufacturer of window and skylights, Velux, produced to launch their digital workplace to their employees, take a look now. It is a humorous explanation of the benefits of their brand new Office 365 based intranet and is a shining example of the passion it takes to successfully launch a new technology solution.
Tereza Urbankova, Head of Communications at Amec Foster Wheeler
Also joining the agenda is Tereza, intranet manager at Amec Foster Wheeler, a global engineering company focusing on oil and gas. Having led the project in 2015 to launch Yammer into the newly merged Amec Foster Wheeler, Tereza knows what it takes to turn painfully low adoption rates into a glowing example of technologies ability to connect employees. Amec Foster Wheeler’s Yammer platform now has over 25,000 users, including senior leaders, and 12,000 are actively engaged.
In our seminar, Tereza will be talking through their Yammer story, explaining how Amec Foster Wheeler managed to turn the platform around to be a key collaboration tool. We’ll also be discussing how Amec Foster Wheeler intend to use their new intranet solution Unily, to take them on the next step of their journey to improved collaboration.
Toby Jones, Internal Communications Manager at the RFU
The governing body of rugby in the England, the RFU, came to us in 2013 to work on a new intranet portal to help connect employees and drive collaboration. At the time, implementing a social intranet with Yammer integration hadn’t been done before and was new to the RFU’s 700 employees. This meant it was essential that the launch of the platform was done right in order to drive maximum usage.
Two years on, how are they maintaining steady adoption of their platform and what plans do they have to insure these statistics stay high? Toby will be joining our intranet adoption panel on Thursday to answer these questions and more. Giving his advice on how to manage content, the intranet team and governance for the best results.
As well as our guest speakers, our top consultants will be sharing their top tops for technology adoption throughout the day. If you haven’t already booked you place, here’s a reminder of our full agenda:
