Digital message boards create community in a fusion process
Interview with Dorthe Christensen, Internal Communication & Office Manager at Saint-Gobain Danmark A/S, Gyproc.
Saint-Gobain Denmark is one of the world's leading producers of materials for the construction industry. Saint-Gobain has utilised dnp Visiosign's information screens for more than 10 years. The screens are central for their internal communication, for the display of their safety regulations as well as for strengthening the sense of community between the many departments across the country.
"We think that the screens help engage our employees, because it creates a feeling of being an important part of something bigger."
Saint-Gobain has installed information screens in production areas, canteens, warehouses and receptions. Among other things, the screens are used to tell good stories. For example, when Saint-Gobain has delivered materials to large construction projects. In this way, the screens can be used to involve employees in the process of large-scale projects and remind them that their work is part of something bigger.
Through the collaboration with dnp Visiosign, Saint-Gobain has changed the way they communicate with their employees. It has been a difficult task to reach all employees, since 60% of Saint-Gobain’s employees do not spend their working day in front of a computer.
"dnp Visiosign listens to us and has customised the product according to our needs. This makes it easy and fast for us to work with internal communication".
According to Dorthe, the information screens are crucial for their internal communication, as the intranet and emails are insufficient in providing important information quickly enough to all employees.
“If a problem occurs once in a while, you call dnp Visiosign Support and it's very quickly fixed."
dnp Visiosign has developed a solution for Saint-Gobain that is customised to their design, profile and specific needs. Dorthe says that there are 2 aspects worth highlighting, that makes the collaboration with dnp Visiosign especially great. Firstly, that dnp Visiosign does a great job at listening to and developing solutions that match Saint-Gobain’s wishes. Secondly, the quick response and troubleshooting from dnp Visiosign Support.
"dnp Visiosign's system is incredibly easy to work with and saves us time in relation to communication work.”
