Creating a sense of community among employees can be a challenge for companies of all sizes. The Home Depot met this challenge head-on by leveraging social media technology and principles to construct a forum for employee discussion, and took home the 2015 Best of Phoenix Award for their internal social media platform, called Warehouse. Warehouse brings associates together across stores, departments, and time zones. Employees can discuss everything from customer questions to community service projects – and even life off-the-clock.

A panel from The Home Depot will join us at the January luncheon to share how they built Warehouse from the ground up – from the initial process of gaining leadership and employee support, through implementation, to how the platform is delivering business benefits today. Our panelists will share key insights into how you can maximize the potential of internal social media to enable employees to collaborate, solve business problems in real time, share best practices, recognize exceptional performance, and build relationships.

Panelists:

   

Katrina Blauvelt, APR, Senior Director, Associate Communications, The Home Depot

   

Yama Sharifi, Senior Manager, Associate Communications, The Home Depot

  Michael Rambus, Manager, Associate Communications, The Home Depot
