Challenge

The customer recognized the need to help its employees and volunteers adapt to new challenges brought on by the coronavirus pandemic. Their intention was to help boost morale, comradery, and a feeling of connectedness amongst its staff spanning over 50 affiliate locations by presenting a series of interviews from fellow coworkers sharing their own personal stories and experiences. Upon completion, the customer would realize the following main benefits:

  • Helping staff feel more connected through shared experiences 
  • Quick turnaround of the solution

Solution

Due to their support agreement with IncWorx, the customer was able to leverage support hours to produce the desired solution. Our familiarity with the customer’s SharePoint environment and internal business policies and procedures allowed IncWorx to help take the project from concept to full production deployment in just a few days. Some highlights of the solution include:

  • Leveraged the customer’s existing SharePoint 2013 environment in Azure
  • Custom SharePoint pages and navigation for easy access by all staff members
  • Custom SharePoint web part for cycling interview content
  • Extensive promotion via site banners, Slack channels, newsletters, and distribution lists

Result

Upon completion of the SharePoint solution, the customer was able to take important measures towards reducing potential negative effects caused by COVID-19 through successfully giving its entire staff easy access to the stories and experiences shared by colleagues.

Conclusion

Left unchecked, social distancing and self-quarantines had the potential to wreak havoc on an organization’s communication, productivity, and employee morale to name a few. It had become more important than ever for employees to feel connected, not isolated. Our customer wanted to use the sharing of personal experiences to help combat feelings of isolation and was looking for a quick turnaround of the solution.

Unlike other support programs, IncWorx provides its customers with the unique ability to leverage support hours for delivering quick wins like this one. We are thrilled to have assisted our customer with successfully delivering such an important solution to its entire staff of employees and volunteers.
