High employee engagement gives a home entertainment company the competitive edge

Following a 2008 employee survey, our client identified a need to improve employee engagement in a key territory. We were retained to improve engagement in this critically important country. Our first step was to deploy an updated and enhanced survey that provided a deeper and more accurate understanding of the issues and challenges that needed to be addressed to improve the organizational dynamic. Based on these findings we implemented a formal communication program, built a leadership development program and developed Work Streams (employee-led teams empowered to identify issues and lead change) that overcame many traditional and bureaucratic obstacles while involving all staff in the solution. We also created Personal Action Plans for key managers that reshaped thinking and ensured accountability. Find out how our work impacted engagement.

Building employee communications into the world’s largest gaming company

The merger between two of the biggest players in the gaming industry resulted in the world’s largest gaming company and needed a strategic, integrated and consistent approach to employee communications. Engagement Strategies was retained to plan and implement a series of integration communications to support the efforts of the organization.  This included specialized messages, newsletters and employee meetings in order to ensure that employees understood the unified direction of the company.  The merger also led to various department consolidations which resulted in reductions of the workforce in various areas of the company.  Engagement Strategies provided strategic counsel to executives on the most effective approach to communicating these changes to those affected as well as the employees who remained on staff.  Learn more about what we did at this company.
