PALO ALTO, Calif., Dec. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In a perfect world, strategic alignment would be a given. All employees would know what their company is doing, the direction it wants to go, how it plans to get there and how each person can play their part. This Wednesday, Jive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: JIVE) and American Express Global Business Travel (GBT) will host a webinar to address how companies can achieve these goals by improving internal communications with new technology.
Corporate communications professionals are doing their best to bring their companies together, but they're often held back by aging, inadequate tools and solutions. During next week's webinar, Sarah Brubaker will explain how GBT aligned its employees throughout a period of cultural transformation with the launch of UConnect, GBT's Jive-powered interactive intranet. She'll be joined by Jive's Gili Guri-Mill who will share tips on how companies can use collaborative solutions to empower employees to become their company's next "communications hero."
"Fostering an environment of collaboration, communication and engagement is mission critical to the success of any organization," said Brubaker. "Implementing an interactive intranet solution can help companies do that. With UConnect, our employees have a central place to access news and information. They can also engage and collaborate in new ways by publishing their own blogs, participating in groups, and using Jive's social functionality – likes, comments and discussions – to share feedback and ask questions. Providing this easy-to-use social platform has helped us improve employee productivity and alignment across all of GBT."
Register here to attend the free 60-minute session, "How to Strategically Align Your Organization."
