  • As We Travel Down The Path  How we got started  What we’ve learned during the first miles of our internal social journey  How we’re evolving our communities and social eco-system through strategic community management ©2013 Walgreen Co. All rights reserved. 2 View slide
  • Our Challenge  Analyze, understand and organize the current Walgreens internal social eco-system  Develop and manage the existing employee communities while preparing for a social intranet rollout  Begin demonstrating the business value of employee communities  Live out the Walgreens Corporate Communications charter: “Connect people to the business and each other” ©2013 Walgreen Co.

  • Keys To Overcoming The Challenge Raising The Bar: Measure with Data and Get Smarter with Strategy “Without mastering data, you’re simply working in the dark. Without data, you’re not a professional. Without data, you will never become better than you are right now. You can’t optimize your activities. You can’t proactively develop your community.” “Strategy is, by far, the most important and most high-value work. People who strategize well combine profound understanding of community development with advanced project management skills...” - Rich Millington, Buzzing Communities ©2013 Walgreen Co.

  • Our Vision: Communities With A Purpose  To produce tangible examples, stories and business use cases that achieve the goals and objectives of our Social Playbook.  To develop, test and evolve the social intranet user experience and community management strategy  To continually demonstrate how our Social Playbook and community management strategy supports the Walgreens Growth Objectives. ©2013 Walgreen Co.

  • How We Got Started Executing Our Community Management Strategy  Started small: created a “1-9-90” pilot community to test and experiment with social strategy  Listened and then engaged with the “1-9-90” within current community ecosystem  Asked for their “3 interests”  Hosted one-on-one meetings and offline community meetups  Modeled desired community behaviors within internal social ecosystem  Connected members within the community and during mini-meetups  Conducted internal divisional and department road tours ©2013 Walgreen Co.

  • Other Important Stuff We Did Along The Way  Continued to refine our Social Playbook, and align it with our external social media policy  Created community editorial content calendar and connected each piece of content to company strategy  Focused on champions, built on wins  Regular reporting and meeting with executive sponsors  Engaged business units and created cross-functional work stream teams  Began creating framework for Center of Excellence and Social Media Council ©2013 Walgreen Co.

  • Success Stories
  • Connecting Team Members To The Business Our communities are helping team members to feel more connected to the company “This experience has shown me how our community gives us the opportunity to be more engaged and motivated while at work. Contributing to discussions about product ideas and customer experience has made me think more about how what I do every day is connected to and impacts company strategy.” - Help Center team member, shared during community Meetup ©2013 Walgreen Co.

  • Solving Problems & Saving Resources Our communities are helping team members save resources and quickly find subject matter experts “This year, I was able to post my macro problem and leverage the community to solve our annual macro problem. Had I not had access to the community, it would have had cost implications for our division as well as the company. Our community allowed me to connect with an expert community, allowing my problem to be solved much more quickly and cost effectively.” - Finance Team Member ©2013 Walgreen Co.
