Real Tales of Transformation: Collaboration in the Digital Age
Jive’s current CEO Elisa Steele (pending the completion of the Aurea acquisition), has posted an enjoyable wrap-up of the recent JiveWorld event:
We’ve wrapped up another fantastic JiveWorld with business leaders from 21 countries including Morocco, Romania, Thailand, New Zealand and more. The world is collaborating on Jive and these great companies are combining technology with human connection to drive outstanding business results. Thanks to everyone who helped make 2017 the best JiveWorld ever!
Elisa goes on to highlight some of the key customer stories that were shared at the event, including this one from the UK:
Grant Thornton, one of the largest consulting firms in the world, has thousands of employees in the UK who deliver know-how and services to hundreds of the top companies in the market. Connecting them, sharing knowledge across the enterprise, and training and retaining talent are at the heart of the business. To transform Grant Thornton UK and better leverage its talent base, Greg Swift, CIO, deployed a single digital solution with Jive that supports one collaborative, united, high-performing organization. As a result, Greg and his team helped significantly accelerate employee recruitment and reduced employee attrition by 10%, delivering real impact to the bottom line. Human connection!
I’m a big fan of the Jive-n community that Grant Thornton launched, known as Jam:
It’s easy to pay too much attention to the stereotype of financial services firms as being either staid and conservative in approach, or else too tied up in compliance legislation to be able to innovate. Grant Thornton definitely break this mould in many different ways, as demonstrated in their use of Jive to streamline and enhance their business.
