Ellie Mae is the leading cloud-based platform provider for the mortgage finance industry. To stay innovative in a competitive climate, and maintain the employee engagement, they chose to invest in smarter digital workplace technology. Their Unily intranet combines Ellie Mae’s high tech nature with their strong core values; perfectly reflecting their brand, while providing a powerful solution to fuel employee passion and experience. The platform keeps communication front and center, with clever widgets such as ‘Cheers for Peers’ to drive engagement and conversation. The new intranet consolidates four different previous technologies, making essential tools more accessible to employees. The result is a 100% active workforce, driven through an intelligent launch and governance campaign that keeps employees on-board.

To make an impact, the intranet was launched via an all-hands meeting with a License-to-Succeed spy theme. The CEO was featured in an engaging video that launched a scavenger hunt through the site with a $500 prize. The site is constantly updated to keep content fresh and users coming back, with monthly contests and weekly Hot Topics emails delivered to push people back to the site. Ellie Mae’s success can be measured through analytics; highlighting 100% of users are active on the intranet, 60% regularly respond to surveys and forms and 40% regularly attend online events. Executive buy-in has remained high and the overall response from employees has been extremely positive. Their previous intranet solutions had much lower engagement rates, highlighting the benefits of providing a centralized gateway to the digital workplace.

Informa is an international business intelligence, publishing and events company, and a constituent of the FTSE 100. With 7,500 colleagues working in one of five business divisions - Academic Publishing, Business Intelligence, Global Exhibitions, Knowledge & Networking and Global Support – in locations from Sydney to São Paulo, the goal was to create a new digital workspace that would increase collaboration and the use of technology, improve the two-way-flow of communication and bring people together.
