Winner: CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield – Your Voice. Your Story. InsideCareFirst.com
An internal research study conducted by the associate communications team at CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield revealed that associates wanted to have a sense of partnership with the company’s Intranet content. “The biggest challenge we faced was to personalize how we covered employee news. We established a firm goal to share our co-workers’ stories and to capture their voices,” says project manager Kevin Kane. The team launched six internal communications campaigns that used video to allow associates to express how corporate initiatives affect their daily work lives. Add to that the incorporation of video and audio into internal news briefs, not to mention a forum where associates can tell stories, and the revitalized Intranet offering at CareFirst became a great source for driving employee involvement and discussion. —SP
