https://www.yammer.com/customers/customer/nationwide/?autoplay=1Nearly all 36,000 employees are on Yammer. When Mark Pizzi, Nationwide’s president and chief operating ofﬁcer, posted a request for employee suggesions on innovations that would improve operations, roughly 400 responses poured in from across the company. “It was compelling for everyone to see the president asking employees how they’d run the company if they were in his shoes,” Schumann says. “People provided outstanding feedback, and some of those ideas are already being implemented.”
Tyco is a leader in Global Fire Safety and Security solutions. We are dedicated to finding innovative ways to save lives, improve businesses and protect people where they live and work. As you can see here, we have 69,000 employees worldwide and protect more than 3 million industrial, commercial and residential customers worldwide.Our journey to social began with a need to connect employees and provide better access to information, particularly as we went through a massive reorganization. Our goals were to:Sunset our existing intranet technology for a more robust, cost-efficient web 2.0 technology.Give corporate functions a vehicle for connecting and collaborating with employees and global teams.Respond to employee feedback.Launch Yammer as the official intranet for Fire & Security at Tyco.
Why were we looking for new solutions? Because there were limitations to existing technology:Accessibility is impacted by location and device, with limited integration with other platforms and sitesRequires dedicated IT support and resourcesPublishing content can be complex, time-consumingNo employee directory / contact informationOne-way communication
2010 employee survey surfaced areas below the norm that needed improvement.We wanted to create an environment where employees were able to voice their opinions without fear of retribution and break down silos within Business Units, creating a more positive workplace fostering openness and trust amongst leadership and employees.
Why did we choose Yammer? A few employees were already using Yammer within the company with great success and we felt that if we could take a more tactical approach to planning and rolling out a social network that it would positively impact the company and enable us to achieve our goals. What specifically attracted us to Yammer?Anytime, anywhere access to information and resources for employees from more than 50 countries, via work/home computers and mobile apps.Doesn’t require dedicated IT support and resourcesReal-time content publishingCost savings over traditional intranet platformsRobust integrations with other platforms and sitesSupport for multiple languagesTwo-way and group communication
Yammer has added tremendous value to our business, in a number of ways and I believe as we move ahead we will find even more areas where we can use Yammer and increase value.
Cloud-based network – Yammer broke down geographical and departmental silos resulting in greater collaboration across boundaries, including language divides.Teams can now easily work together, share information and knowledge regardless of location.External Networks – Worked with different communication agencies as part of the reorganization via External Networks.Examples: Working within geographic and business unit boundaries, employees were segmented and unaware of what their counterparts were doing in other countries and divisions.Yammer helped break down barriers, connecting employees across the globe. Now discussion can easily take place allowing for teams to share information, suggestions and innovations instantly creating more value for the business.Huge opportunity for Tyco with the upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil. However, construction company was not familiar with Tyco, a query on Yammer gathered a list of reference stadiums in a short time.
Improved on-boarding process – New hires are invited to the network weeks before they start so they can review documents, join in team conversations and contribute prior to their first day.Unified culture – Brings together employees across divisions and fosters a sense of connectedness. Not only does everyone stay more aligned, but they are more aware of how their work is contributing to the company’s success.Nurture Talent– Yammer enables employees to recognize each other for great performance and stay in the know with what other teams are accomplishing around the world. Career development – The Careers at Tyco group brings employees together to learn from each other and achieve their career goals.
Tyco’s Yammer Network keeps employees in nearly 50 countries and over 1000 location worldwide, connected and aligned on important company goals. Examples: Senior leadership and global Business Units use Yammer make official announcements, post letters, news and updates, so employees can not only read them but also post questions and opinions. On October 1, 2012, Tyco became a new company – and “Day One” celebrations were held at Tyco business locations worldwide. Employees used the TYN to upload photos and updates from their Day One events – tagging them with the topic #DayOne so they could be easily accessed with just a click. As a result, every user on the Tyco Yammer Network was able to be part of every Day One celebration held worldwide.
Yammer helped transform disparate business units into a single, cohesive company.Patchwork of systems and intranets as a result of the massive reorganization – As companies were acquired, the original infrastructures were maintained. Tyco needed to connect the organization with a common, central portal for everyone to use.How we consume data and interact with content has ultimately changed. With Yammer we’re able to:Access from anywhereDistribute tacit knowledge and find expertsDynamic discoveryCollaborate on documents in real-timeAnd it doesn’t require IT support
Worked with the Yammer Customer Success team each step of the way.Yambassadors – Power-users help support migration, reinvigorated the network and showed how essential it was for business.Yammerazzi – Helped promote internally at Tyco, the significance of moving to an ESN.Promotional Materials – Distributed how-to guides and other promotional materials worldwide to drive excitement and engagement.

Results Cont. Overcoming skepticism Moving the Intranet to the Tyco Yammer Network helped legitimize the network in the eyes of our more skeptical employees, and as a result drove significant additional enrollment. We gained almost 4,000 additional users since the launch of the Intranet on the TYN. Central access point for resources Employee resources now could only be accessed via Yammer. This aligned with our other Yammer-centric communications strategies, including making our weekly newsletter feature excerpts from articles, with links to the whole article on Yammer. As a result, we passively forced employees to become part of Yammer to access our content. Continued migration Looking forward, we intend to migrate more content into the Yammer platform, including Intranets from different business units, and more and more SharePoint sites.#yamvalue
