Bringing the Mission to Life: Utilizing Multlmedia Employee Stories to Exceed Benchmarks
St. Louis Children's Hospital
People want to work for more than just a paycheck – they want meaning. Consequently, the power of purpose can enhance organizational performance.

St. Louis Children’s Hospital consistently achieves top 10 percent results nationally in employee engagement and patient satisfaction. A simple, compelling 5-word mission serves as the foundation for the hospital’s success.
 
In this session, you’ll:
  • See how multimedia employee stories with visual and emotional impact exceed audience engagement benchmarks
  • Understand how the employee voice is treated seriously, resulting in staff feeling more connected to the goals and mission
  • Explore why the context of change is more effective from the employee viewpoint vs. the organizational viewpoint
  • Discover how the hospital is serving as an internal communication “innovation lab” for the rest of the 13-hospitals within BJC HealthCare

You Can Build It, But Will They Come? How A Mobile First Strategy Can Transform Employee Engagement
Sitrion

Intranets continue to be a strategy for employee engagement, but now we know that building a destination does not necessarily promise success. So many organizations struggle with intranet adoption, and rather than address the real challenge, they set out to revamp or redesign the same intranet they had in place.

 

In this session, Stefanie will challenge the concept of a destination intranet, and share real-world examples of how companies are successfully pushing relevant, targeted content to their employees through a mobile employee app.

 

Through these real-world company examples, you’ll learn how a single employee app can deliver true employee engagement at all levels:

  • Improving internal awareness and employee advocacy
  • Understanding how the employee works to increase overall adoption
  • Building a business case to get others in your organization aligned with this way of thinking

I Belong: Turning Employee Apathy into Employee Engagement Through the Use of Social Tools
Cigna

The larger an organization gets, the harder it is to connect with your employees.  With nearly 40,000 employees around the globe, Cigna has faced its challenges in keeping coworkers connected, just like everyone else. Two tools Cigna has successfully used to connect coworkers with other colleagues and leadership are employee blogging and weekly video programming. By giving employees a voice and providing a reason to check-in, Cigna has created a culture of community and support that translates into taking better care of their external customers. 

 

Through Cigna’s examples you’ll learn how to effectively engage employees through social communication tools, including how to:

 

  • Utilize your internal social platform for more than corporate messaging
  • Jumpstart engagement when little-to-no interaction is going on
  • Manage the employees who “like it the way it was”

Day One Recap + Chairperson's Presentation: Corporate Training Goes Social
Rogue Solutions and Services

SharePoint is a document management and collaboration asset popular in many enterprises. It is well known as platform for intranet and automation solutions. Continued enhancements to SharePoint’s media-friendliness, including video files, present an opportunity to recast the stodgy reputation of corporate training as modern “social workplace” experiential learning.

 

In this general session, Michelle Esposito of Rogue Services and Solutions will share Corporate Learning Center model that encourages engagement in place of more passive, traditional training. The Corporate Learning Center model contains all training artifacts, including videos, presentations, documents, questions, and discussion—but brings in the social touchstones expected by the modern workforce.

 

If SharePoint is in place in your organization, you probably already know it allows a multi-level hierarchy for nested artifacts, user roles for permission configuration, and a consistent, familiar interface. In this session, learn how to use the SharePoint features familiar to you but also to stretch your SharePoint investment by allowing users to rate videos/training artifacts, submit their own courses and lessons, and track their own coursework. This Corporate Learning Center model enhances employee engagement and takes some of the pain out of train.
