PANDORA was recognised by CIPR Inside, the chartered body of Chartered Institute of Public Relations dedicated to internal communication and employee engagement, for its outstanding efforts to introduce and train global users on the new intranet solution, named INFORA. This involved the core intranet team travelling to meet and train employees from PANDORA's key locations including USA, Canada, Brazil, Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, Shanghai, Australia, Thailand, Dubai, France, Germany and Italy.
International training sessions were supported by a comprehensive internal marketing campaign which included on-site go-live celebrations and intranet 'troops' present at many offices promoting INFORA by handing out gift bags and merchandise.
In addition, life-size standees of three intranet cartoon characters representing communication, collaboration, and sharing were arranged in every office globally, with their iconography consistently represented across the entire campaign, reminding users of the core benefits of the new intranet.
"We're really proud to receive the CIPR Award for Best International Campaign in London, in recognition of our high-paced but thorough worldwide roll-out and adoption of our new intranet and global digital workplace." said Morten Dal, Global Intranet Manager, PANDORA. "Creative marketing and sustained training and adoption efforts are really key to a successful implementation and business value."
This award marks a momentous time for PANDORA, as the intranet team prepares to conclude its international on-boarding campaign in the UK on February 28th. The positive business impact of the campaign is already clear, with a 90% increase in global users with over 57 countries active on the new intranet. With over 8,000 unique monthly visitors, and an 85% increase in visits to local and global news pages, INFORA has achieved its goal of enabling global connectivity.
"We're thrilled to see one of our clients receive recognition for the outstanding work it has achieved with its digital workplace" said Paul Jackson, Managing Director, BrightStarr. "We look forward to our continuing relationship with PANDORA, working with the team to grow and adapt the solution to ensure continued adoption."
