To say that the past year was a challenging one would be an understatement (I’m sure you’ve heard that enough by now). Organizations faced challenge after challenge as the world was turned upside down by the pandemic.
Companies were scrambling for ways to ensure their employees’ safety, keep everyone connected, provide mental health resources, and stay productive in a socially distanced world. If we took away one lesson from 2020, it was how resilient we all truly are.
With everything that transpired in the past year, we were even more excited to open the Jostle Awards. Every Awards season, we hear amazing stories from customers describing how they’ve continued to create connected organizations with their Jostle intranet. This year was no different.
FINROCK used Jostle to keep everyone in the loop, including deskless employees and those on the field sites.
Thirty organizations from all over the world took the time to reflect and share stories, pictures, and even videos outlining the ways their intranet kept them connected when they needed it most. We drew so much inspiration from the submissions. Many organizations encouraged employees to share photos of their new (usually four-legged) office-mates and held virtual hangouts to keep everyone in touch. Some had to enhance the ways they collaborate and manage projects digitally. Let’s not forget the gratitude leaders shared with employees going above and beyond and how they celebrated those on the front lines of their organization.
“Over the past year, we witnessed our customers pivot and adapt to new ways of working. Organizations focused on engagement, inclusivity, and maintaining connections throughout the pandemic, and these stories certainly came through in the submissions we received this year.”, said Sally Smith, Director of Customer Success at Jostle.
