As many communicators are aware, one of the key issues in today’s workplace is a lack of employee engagement. As the Gallup Organization frequently reminds us, only about 1/3 of the workforce is engaged, leaving the other 2/3 either “neutral” or completely disengaged.  Disengaged employees can negatively affect their business units, colleagues and overall organization productivity. This session will highlight a mobile communications strategy that can serve as a case study to help reach both the engaged and disengaged segments of your workforce.


Given the prevalence of the mobile device, every company should be considering how to incorporate mobile into their communications strategy, and this session will help establish some key criteria for incorporating mobile. As a result of this session, attendees will learn how to:


  • Keep your employees engaged through a mobile communications strategy thus increasing productivity and satisfaction levels
  • Ensure that every employee, especially the frontline worker typically does not access the company intranet, can easily and efficiently access relevant and important information
  • Create and launch an internal communications strategy that utilizes a company’s own branded app to communicate, inform and engage with their employees
