Q: Is there anyone you’d like to recognize for their outstanding contribution to your intranet? For example, your executive team, champions, or contributors. If so, tell us about them.
A: We’d like to nominate Jane Appleseed because she’s been an extremely passionate advocate for the Jostle platform from day one. She’s been instrumental in the organization’s adoption of our new intranet, going above and beyond to ensure its success. Here’s how:
Jane was the one who realized we needed a communication platform. She did the research, found Jostle, and took it to our leadership team. She championed it from the start.
Our launch was a great success thanks to Jane. She put a great Events Team together and hashed out all the details. Her enthusiasm got the team pumped up and this had a domino effect at the launch.
Jane set up a Discussion group – “How can I help?” – which allowed everyone to post any questions they had about the platform.
Jane gives back to Jostle. When she notices small, achievable improvements, she will reach out to the Jostle Customer Success team and provide her feedback and ideas.
If there's additional content or supporting assets that you’d like to share to demonstrate a particular project, initiative, or aspect of your intranet, you can use the final question to attach up to 10 supporting assets. This could include additional written content, photographs, videos, screenshots, slidedecks, etc. to illustrate your story.
