Connecting shop floors workers in an industry where information security is key

We have developed a mobile app to supplement our intranet and have been rolling it out to our shop floor employees. As security is paramount in our industry, we have focused our attention on making sure that employees can leverage Microsoft Azure Active Directory on their BYOD devices by helping them every step of the way.
In this presentation you will learn:

  • Why we needed a mobile app and how we started the development
  • How we identified and planned to overcome rollout challenges
  • How IT, communications and HR teamed up to make sure our shop floor employees adopted the app
  • How our mobile app drives employee engagement
  • How word of mouth boosts adoption
  • How we will use our lessons learned to plan to expand the app beyond the United States
