Real-time, two-way, digital communication is necessary to driving change, fostering innovation and improving employee engagement. You will gain insight on starting your Workplace launch off on the right foot by putting together a diverse team of “superuser” ambassadors, working through issues and barriers well ahead of the launch, creating customized collateral and content, generating pre-launch excitement, and bringing executives and leaders on to the team.

Learn how to seamlessly launch Workplace, including how to:


  • Orchestrate an “Innovation Session” as your first step when planning your Workplace launch
  • Utilize the right resources - learn which branded resources, collateral, and documents really matter
  • Introduce a targeted “soft launch”, which can better identify and resolve issues before go-live
  • Coordinate launch day tactics that can provide more impact
