While many organizations aspire to have strong communication channels across departments, divisions or locations, the reality of today’s workplace is that most people communicate with their direct location peers only. Typical communication patterns reinforce the ‘corporate silo’ effect as staff communicate most often with people within their pay scale and department, and very infrequently with those across other geographic or business unit locations.
Aside from corporate ‘mass emails,’ few businesses have the tools in place to encourage meaningful communication across departments or divisions. That is, until Peersite. Our Peersite application serves to not only support learning and corporate knowledge base building, but also to create connected communities within organizations. Head office personnel have open channels to gain insight from staff and gain feedback into their marketplace while location staff has opportunities to connect with one another across divisions, departments and dealerships. This ‘connected culture of collaboration’ links staff while breaking down the ‘corporate silos’ that are all too common in today’s workforce.
