Have you ever worked at a company that fit into one building or even just one room? Did you experience the energy that comes with working with people in person? It’s easy to connect with the expert you need at any time; you get things solved quickly; and you always feel on top of everything. If you have great news to share or some impactful changes to deal with, you just shout out and everyone gets together immediately to put all hands on deck.
Communications in a distributed work environment
The reality is most organizations are globally-distributed across multiple geographies and time zones – even the small ones. Sometimes you have to be very creative when sending out communications to every employee like newsletters, employee magazines, notices, etc. However, despite your efforts, the majority of employees – especially the desk-less workers – still feel disconnected from important information and not included as a result.
Leverage the power of mobility for communications
Nowadays enterprise social networks and targeted internal communications solutions do a great job to connect and engage more employees within an organization, yet desk-less workers still face the challenge of being part of the connected organization. Although desk-less workers often account for 60% or more of total employees, they have just partial access to a computer and are often not able to leverage digital self-services like the Intranet, enterprise social networks, or HR processes.
Reach your employees on their device of choice
More input from our customers, we heard loud and clear that reaching employees on their device of choice is the next evolution in corporate communications – primarily because the smartphone penetration is between 85-95% of their workforce. Leveraging personal mobile devices is the only option to reach almost all your employees. Ideally as a corp comms professional you would like to just upload the latest news to the usual place like SharePoint and it gets distributed automatically. This is exactly what Sitrion ONE does, it collects all relevant messages from SharePoint and automatically distributes it to the specified target audiences.
Empower corp comms with interaction, enhanced targeting, and analytics
Sending out messages like newsletters could just be the first step. Sitrion helps you boost the impact of those communications with more powerful capabilities specifically developed for corporate communications. Targeting messages gets very easy by defining target audiences, importance, and distribution times. Target audiences include PC users as well as mobile users. In order to give your employees a voice you can add a number of interaction capabilities – like, comment, share, and ask a question. Furthermore, within a corp comm dashboard you can see the impact of your messages with all relevant analytics next to each message.
Discover more mashups of communications with processes
Corporate communications is one of many capabilities that is specifically designed to help you boost internal communications and social adoption. Sitrion ONE helps you mobilize many social processes like internal communications broadcasts, asking questions, posting ideas, as well as hundreds of other mobile use cases. To aid in these critical processes, ONE includes pre-built, secure connectors to your systems like Salesforce.com, SAP, and SharePoint, all in a single, native app.
The huge advantage is that you can mashup processes, information, and activities in one space tailored to the context of each user – for example, corporate communications, time entry, paystub lookup, approvals from multiple systems, forecast alerts, and so on.
We are hosting a webinar next week if you'd like to see all of this in action for yourself.
