Com08. How to drive and prove the value of Employee Engagement using IBM Connections and workplaceON on-boarding

Monday, May 8 | 14:45 - 15:30 | C. Gorilla 3

In this session we will explore how the Opus Neo solution "workplaceON" has provided clients with an intuitive interface to IBM Connections that targets content for all users. We will also show a IBM Connections on-boarding process (available for Cloud or On-premises) and that is available on any device. Using actual case studies, we will show some insights from the journey our clients are on. In one case we will show how they increased the usage of IBM Connections Cloud by > 1100% in just 4 short weeks,
You will also learn how an intuitive interface can make the difference in adoption and how the usual content from IBM Connections can be styled in a appealing and modernized design.
With the 'workplaceON SocialStudent Edition' students are provided with a real-world collaborative environment similar to the ones they’re likely to experience once they’ve graduated and entered the workforce

Str05. Employee Engagement using IBM Connections

Tuesday, May 9 | 11:30 - 12:30 | B. Okapi 2

Mears Group today employs over 20,000 people in every region of the UK. A long standing Notes Domino, Quickr and Sametime user, in 2015 Mears embarked on a journey to roll out IBM Connections cloud to all its employees in order to facilitate a new way to engage with its employee base. The biggest challenge we faced was how to engage 16,000 employees who had no access to any information systems. Their interaction with the new environment had to be intuitive (from their first interaction) and provide them with relevant information that ensured they use the system on a consistent basis. The aim of this session is to explain the vision, the challenges and the current status of the implementation and we will demo our new environment.
