Sitrion ONE is an award-winning employee app for directly reaching and engaging with all your employees on their mobile devices, no matter where they are.
 
This interactive demo will demonstrate how Sitrion can enhance your existing internal communications strategy, by:
  • Reach and communicate effectively with all employees, even if those employees do not have a company issued computer, phone or email address
  • Involve your people in decision making, organizational changes, strategic initiatives, and innovation
  • Increase engagement and receive immediate feedback from your workforce; employees feel valued and informed
  • Target messages to specific groups increases the quality and relevancy of your communications
  • Analyze and optimize the effectiveness of your communications
  • Secure environment ensures your company data is safe

Size Matters: What Big Companies Can Learn About Communications From the Little Guys
ADT

When ADT was purchased by a Private Equity firm and merged with a smaller security firm, Protection 1 (P1), it was a massive change for their employees on both sides of the business. When it came to Communications, there were challenges and opportunities. While ADT has the tools and the scale, P1 had way more personal touch to their communications. In many ways, ADT’s size was the biggest barrier to creating meaningful communications that connected each employee to the leadership team.

 

Learn how ADT's combined Communications Team became “Better Together” (their integration mantra) and how to guide your employees through change, including:


  • Utlizing face-to-face leadership engagement - still the most effective way to engage employees
  • Recognizing the importance of multiple communications channels in times of change (reach people where they are, versus making them fish)
  • Engaging non-desk workforce using tools and technologies – on a shoestring budget

BroadSign & ICology
The speed at which technology changes and improves increases exponentially. While every piece of new technology may not be relevant to every company, it’s important for communicators to have a basic understanding of new technology and its capabilities. Internal communicators tend to be more on the bleeding edge (than cutting edge) of technology, providing a safer and more risk-free approach.  

This session will provide you with an overview of a number of new technologies, including how to:

  • Gain an understanding of each’s strength to see what would work best in your organization
  • Secure organizational buy-in into technology investments
  • Introduce new technologies into the workplace and boost user adoption
