    4. 4. 4 Content & Communications Business Objective Streamline operational communications, simplify messaging and increase compliance and comprehension
    5. 5. 5 Business Problem Four issues compromising frontline readiness and flexibility to sell/support services: Volume of messaging – employees expected to read over 170K words/month delivered via email and KM articles No time to understand and act on information – over seven hours required to read 90K words Difficult to cut through volume and identify information central to job function – only 30-40% of messages sent are role-critical Email is not an ideal vehicle to deliver critical/time sensitive messages – 56% of employees read critical information in first five hours
    6. 6. 6 How Much Information are employee reading?

    8. 8. 8 Impacts Description Higher AHT Looking through e-mail, asking peers, waiting for information from team managers Increased Repeat Calls Customers who receive incorrect information call back - Issue not resolved on first call Higher Operating Costs Knowledge gaps reduce compliance and drive higher costs to Rogers Lower CSat Customers who receive inconsistent responses are less willing to recommend Rogers Lower ESat /Lower Productivity Without the right tools to do their jobs and timely messaging, employees are unable to resolve customers issues Opportunity /Size & Scope: What if the Messages are not Read?
