CSC is awarded JiveWorld’s Inaugural Community Adoption Award
October 29, 2009 1 Comment
I received, along with a colleague of mine, John Chambers, Jive’s Community Adoption award at the inaugural JiveWorld conference earlier today. This award went to CSC for the launch of its internal community “C3: Connect. Communicate. Collaborate.”
Through the tenacity, credibility and trustworthiness of those involved, the CSC team secured a phenomenal level of executive endorsement from the onset and established a clear linkage between its “enterprise 2.0” initiatives to the company’s core business strategic objectives. Through enabling a strong global advocate network and allowing collaboration patterns to emerge, C3 enjoyed viral success in only 20 weeks, achieving 25,000 registered users, over 2000 new groups and generating over 1 million page views a month.
The Community Adoption Award was set up by Jive with the following in mind:
Building a useful and engaging community is one thing, getting people to join the community and participate is another.
The successful launch of a community is a complex process involving multiple company groups to build buzz, educate users and encourage involvement. Many of Jive’s customers launch large marketing campaigns to promote a new community where others leverage word of mouth and other social media tools to drive people to their community.
We are honored to accept the award on behalf of many of our CSC team members and global advocates who worked so hard with us over the months to make the adoption of this program a success and beneficial to our employees.
Six customers in total, United Business Media (UBM), NIKE Inc., National Journal Group, CSC, Kaiser Permanente, and Swiss Re were recognized for outstanding achievements in their social business strategies. Read Jive’s Press Release for more details.
