February 28 

Creating an Intranet Hub for Organisational Change – Part 1 & 2 

This workshop will focus on the role of intranets and internal communications in digital transformation.

The goal of the session will be to show how intranet and comms people can bring some important skills in networking, information management and storytelling that are needed if organisations are to engage their people in the transformation process.

This will look at how to develop both a passionate network of change agents to help drive change and also a much wider ‘human sensor network’ of people who can provide feedback on the goals and progress of transformation.

 It will also discuss how intranet managers can curate an internal ‘change’ hub to explain the organisation’s view of transformation, share new methods and ways of working and help bridge the gap between leaders’ vision and day-today-reality.

Building The Bridge from Traditional Business Targets to New Ways of Collaboration at Siemens

Engagement  surveys in companies today reveal that current classical management systems lack (amongst others) two important elements of employee satisfaction: Transparency and Participation. This is painful for companies because no need to say that performance suffers if the staff is not satisfied.  An Enterprise Social Network – amongst others –can perfectly address to those effects and increase  a feeling of  control and connection in working live – with positive implications on engagement and quality of output.

But – the sole availability of a ESN will not eliminate the employees  barriers to collaborate as a network all of the sudden. Especially in big Old Economy companies the management – and incentive system foster a tendency  to stay in your silo and focus on own targets first. (Whereas  sharing is not considered a value or success factor)

Siemens has introduced it’s ESN (“SSN”) in 2013 and started to actively enable it’s employees “technically” 2016 – after realizing, that there will be no activity otherwise and no progress to develop from a pure communication platform to a collaborative network.  We currently move into the next phase: Communication is possible – now who will enable the employees to collaborate? (Could this be the new challenge for HR?) Today we have a number of examples where the SSN is accepted as a working tool rather than “only” a communication tool – even in the blue collar area where not everybody owns a PC.

There is still a way to go – but we already see how the SSN changes the culture – from bottom up, with open communication and brave actions like culture hacks which would never have been possible without the SSN.



Changing to Yammer – Employee Engagement and Improved Collaboration and Leadership

While many organisations focus on digital channels for improved employee communication, Virgin Trains’ focus is on conversational leadership and face-to-face. Their internal communications and employee engagement strategy focuses on equipping leaders with the skills they need to collaborate effectively, primarily face-to-face with their teams. But with a dispersed workforce focussed on real life conversations, it’s vital to have a suite of channels to support and motivate conversations.

We’ll discuss how leaders at Virgin Trains are personally responsible for delivering the internal communications strategy in a business that believes the traditional intranet is irrelevant.
