In recent years, numerous online tools for internal communication have been made available to employees. These include social intranet, digital workplaces, and Microsoft 365 apps such as Teams. However, when implementing these tools, technology is often the focus instead of people. This conference focuses on an alternative approach, focusing on putting employees first. The goal is to get them back on the same page, so that they enjoy doing their work and feel a strong connection with the organization.

On behalf of Embrace, Esmée Burger-Coors from legal assistance insurer ARAG talks about how the social intranet is used to increase connection and engagement within the organization.

“Colleagues feel connected to each other,” emphasizes Esmée, “but they also know what other departments stand for and are doing. When colleagues know an organization's strategy and know where the company wants to go, you contribute to more loyalty and engagement.”

In this presentation, Esmée will explain how to involve colleagues in an organization's strategy in a structured, inspiring, yet light-hearted way. She will support this approach with relevant data from analytics and thorough research.
