How Pearson Connects 30,000 Employees Across 70 Countries
Pearson is the world’s learning company, with expertise in educational courseware and assessment, and a range of teaching and learning services powered by technology. Pearson’s mission is to help people make progress through access to better learning.
With more than 30,000 people across 70 countries, Pearson needed a way to provide employees with tools that would foster collaboration, improve productivity and drive success – in short, a digital workplace. To that end, in 2011 the company launched Neo, an interactive intranet powered by Jive. Neo quickly attracted thousands of users and helped Pearson create a unified culture, including improved dialogue between execs and employees, an easier way to find and share content, and a hub for employee engagement and experience.
Seven years later, Neo is still going strong. The team recently released a video designed to introduce new employees to the platform, which includes some quotes from Neo users. According to Pearson employees, Neo is…
- The place to go for important business announcements that affect me
- Essential in getting updates on projects I’m involved with
- A great tool for internal Pearson networking – helps me put a face to the name
- Tremendous for onboarding new employees
