Building connected organisations

Building connected organisations

All around us, people's expectations are changing.

By 2020, 35% of the workforce will be millennials. They've grown up in a world that is more open and connected than ever before.

And they don't see why the workplace should be any different. In fact, 53% of gen Yers say that they'd be more likely to accept a job if they could use the same technologies at work as they do in their personal lives.

If expectations are changing, organisations must change with them. It starts with becoming connected

At the same time, customers are no longer just looking at our products and services. They're looking at our values, our processes, even our supply chains, to make sure that our actions speak every bit as loud as our words.

And if they don't like what they see, they'll go somewhere else – 83% of shoppers will choose a brand they trust over one they don't.

And if expectations are changing, organisations must change with them. It starts with becoming connected.

Sheryl, Joanne and John will share insights from their experiences with connecting tens of thousands of employees and millions of volunteers through technology and a shared sense of purpose.
