    Success & Struggles:
    UBM's Global Online Employee Community
    Deployment Lessons

    Duration: 45 Minutes

    United Business Media Limited is a leading global business media company that has successfully grown through numerous acquisitions. The company currently operates more than a dozen distinct and autonomous business lines, primarily in Europe, Asia and the United States. However, this incremental growth led to a federated model that required a new approach for leveraging the strengths and wisdom of 6,500 employees in 38 countries.

    In order to get the various divisions feeling more like one global company, and to streamline an IT structure across independently run businesses, UBM had to make it easier for employees to connect and share intelligence with their peers located in different locations and business units.

    UBM turned to Jive Social Business Software to revolutionize how its employees find, connect and collaborate with each other both within and across its various business units. In less than a year since deploying Jive technology, UBM has seen both successes and challenges. This webcast will explain how UBM came to have sustained growth in communities and creation of content, increases in collaboration across geography and organizational divisions, and high levels of adoption, as well as frank analysis of the cultural challenges that all companies must face in order to achieve universal adoption of new social technologies.

    Join us for an informative discussion on what community adoption efforts have worked and what efforts remain, and how this is shaping UBM's strategy for moving forward.

    You will learn strategies to:

    • Engage your employees and promote collaboration with rich online communities
    • Instill a culture of sharing and cooperation across divisional silos
    • Promote, manage, grow and measure employee communities and productivity
