The Challenge

How does an organization with over 37,000 employees keep its workforce excited, informed, and engaged for large -scale events?

For this customer, the answer was clear: embrace the latest technology to give employees an easy way to share their excitement. The solution needed to be accessible on mobile, integrate with familiar social networks and provide a content-rich experience for employees. Implementing a program of this kind would be an innovative way to unite employees around a global sporting event, and would be the first program of this scale for a Canadian bank.

The Solution

The PostBeyond platform allowed employees across the country to access content related to the upcoming event at any time, and share with their Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter networks.

The company engaged its staff by curating engaging content, adding interactive games, and offering exciting prizes. In addition to sharing content individually, employees were grouped into teams to play against one another for a chance to win NHL tickets.

We saw this program as an innovative way to integrate new technologies into how we communicate with our employees across the country. The enthusiasm we saw from our team reinforced our decision to embrace technology and social media in this way.


The Results

The customer was the most mentioned brand online during the large-scale event they used PostBeyond to prepare for.

Employees embraced the program with enthusiasm, with over 2,000 employees joining the platform in just two weeks. The PostBeyond content library quickly became the preferred way to distribute content to employees. Over 45 days, employees shared over 24,500 pieces of branded content with their friends and family.

Since the content library was so intuitive for employees, this customer plans to scale PostBeyond to engage more employees and share exciting news about the company and their upcoming community initiatives.
