Is your intranet:

  • A dump heap of news, documents and outdated org charts?
  • The last place employees look for company information?
  • Ignored or misunderstood by employees?

You can fix this.

But you don’t have to do it on your own.

Join this on-demand intranet tour and see how American Family Insurance created a private Facebook-like platform for their organization called Connections.

With more than 18,000 employees and the challenges every communicator faces, getting there was no small feat.

Now employees use blogs, discussion boards, collaboration tools and social media. Connections has become an extension of the employee workday.

Your presenters Pat Miller and David Soderna will show you how AmFam selected, approved and activated their social intranet.

She’ll tour the pages of their intranet and give you an up-close look at the internal social tools they use.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Get stakeholders on board—from executives to coders
  • Meet legal and regulatory requirements
  • Address roadblocks with reasonable solutions
  • Achieve a unified user experience without a tech overhaul
  • Give employees a voice online to spur company-wide change

You’ll understand:

  • Why American Family socialized its intranet
  • The business hurdles they faced– and how they beat them
  • How peer-to-peer “shout-outs” boost recognition and create an unshakeable internal community
  • Why putting positive and negative feedback on forums was a good choice—they even have a “dislike” button
  • Best practices for intranet adoption—how American Family got employees to engage after they invested
  • What the “mailroom blog post” means to American Family
  • The map of American Family’s intranet—the components they started with, what they waited to deploy and why
  • If you plan to use internal social tools at your organization and you must make your case to the people who matter, you don’t want to miss this event.
