The Hershey Company's Digital Workplace. With Unily and Office 365.

The Hershey Company was founded in 1894 and is now located in more than 70 countries and employs over 21,000 remarkable people.  With 80+ iconic favorites that include Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars, Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, the company is globally famous for bringing goodness to the world. The Hershey Company also wanted to bring goodness to their employees with a high-end, consumer grade intranet experience that would empower them to connect and collaborate.

Beyond the need for increased collaboration, key drivers included having a scalable, evergreen platform that would reduce infrastructure costs and fully utilize their Microsoft Office 365 licenses. Our Unily Hub intranet was the perfect ingredient.

Story Summary. Painting A Picture of Essential Information.

A Single Productivity Hub

Unily Hub provides a single source digital platform, capable of pulling in external information from a variety of sources. Of specifically high value to The Hershey Company is the ability to pull extranet news and social media content into the platform for easy consumption. The key is to provide a single hub to access everything an employee needs.

No Language Barriers

As a global company, it was essential to The Hershey Company to provide user experiences in an employee’s native tongue, which naturally provides the most efficient way to acquire and share knowledge. Unily’s ability to auto translate with the click of a button is invaluable to achieving that goal, helping to engage employees across the globe.

Completely Mobile

A major part of the digital transformation is formed by the Hershey concept that “Work is what you do, not where you are.” The appreciation for a device agnostic, any-where, any-time intranet experience was a key driver. Unily Hub provides native mobile apps that make the experience intrinsically dynamic and valuable.
