To connect the physical world with the digital world by digitizing any everyday object. Today, the company employs 400 people worldwide. To create a link between all its employees, Sigfox regularly organizes internal events. Discover how they bring interactivity and practicality thanks to Eventdrive!
The problem: a lack of interactivity at internal events
In addition to the many external events they organize, Sigfox makes it a priority to organize many internal events for their employees:
- GENERAL MEETINGS (1 PAR TRIMESTRE)
- SEMINARS (1 PAR AN)
All these events are designed with one vision in mind: interactivity. However, it is difficult to bring 400 people together, especially since many participants participate remotely. The lack of anonymity of the guests' publications also makes for a delicate situation.
The solution: a mobile application
To remedy this and make each internal event an exemplary model of participation, Sigfox chose Eventdrive for its engagement features. Debbie Ewens, Head of Internal Communications at Sigfox, said it best. "Eventdrive was a no-brainer for us. Plus, it’s a great story: two people who encountered this problem event after event finally invent the solution to their own problem!"
The results: an audience engaged at internal events
So, what happened? Sigfox found much more committed people at their internal events, an increase in participation, more involved employees, and measurable results.
IN ESSENCE, SIGFOX SUCCEEDED IN ENGAGING 400 EMPLOYEES WORLDWIDE AT THEIR INTERNAL EVENTS.
