Elis: A Communication Platform That Builds Company Pride

Many companies dream about having employees who are proud of their workplace. You know, employees who have a smile on their face while they talk about 'their’ company, act as positive ambassadors, and are top-loyal.

To Elis Denmark, it was a dream coming true.

After launching the Relesys Communication Platform, Elis Denmark experienced a community feeling coming up to the surface – along with higher employee engagement and satisfaction.

FROM ‘WAY BACK’ COMMUNICATION TO TWO-WAY COMMUNICATION

When we first met Elis, they were limited in the way they could reach, inform, and involve their employees: Via their intranet, a few office screens, and printed sheets. 

This caused a lot of damage to the internal communication flow since 2 out of 3 employees didn’t have access to a computer or an email account.

Therefore, HR Partner in Elis, Christina Voss, was not in doubt: 

We saw a great demand for internal communication improvements."

 

A one-point-of-contact communication platform became an eyeopener - and a miracle maker - to Elis. They could structure and target their information flows to ensure that the employees only received relevant information. The platform also made everything accessible and updated 24/7 for everyone in the company.

 

To Amalie Ussing, Communications Manager in Elis, it was crucial to find a platform that could bridge the gap between the HQ and the employees. Elis experienced a closer dialogue since the platform made it possible both for the HQ and the employees to have a voice:  

Our internal communication has been much better after introducing the app since we can easily share information with everyone within the company."

 

HITTING THE GOAL FOR EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT WITH TURBO SPEED

The all-in-one-communication platform has engaged all of Elis' employees – from HQ to production. The management’s hard work with getting all their employees onboarded paid off – and within the first month, they reached their goal of how many employees they wanted to engage with the app.

 

Mia Sivertsen is a Production Manager at Elis and to her, the app has become a loyal companion throughout her daily work routines:

I use it for everything. To say when everything's going great. But also if there's a problem and we need to make sure that everybody understands that this is something we need to handle and how we need to handle it."

 

Mia adds that she doesn’t only use the platform for work-related purposes, but also in social, informal contexts to celebrate birthdays or share success stories with the rest of the organization.

 

ELIS: A WORKPLACE Filled with PRIDE 

Elis has experienced ‘above expectations’-success with their social modules in the app. The platform has created space where a community feeling among the employees has come out from its hideout – and flourished. The community feeling is the result of a shared pride of working in Elis, especially when it comes to their sustainability values and efforts. 

 

The platform module Join Me at Work has created excitement and a high level of engagement among the employees. Amalie Ussing explains how the module connects the employees in different positions across the organization. Here, they tell and show what kind of tasks they fulfill in Elis – and therefore how they contribute to the company’s green purpose:  

We saw that it was a help to break down the barriers between production, service, and sales, among others. They got a better understanding of what each other were doing."

 

The employees at Elis inspire each other every day by sharing their daily work and the value that they add to the company’s success. The employees are cheering for each other by liking and commenting on posts on the social wall, which has created a positive and acknowledging work culture on all levels in the organization.
