Choosing the right platform is a good start, but at Plek we will help you turn it into a success. Our approach depends on your objectives and the development phase your organization is in. We distinguish three levels, which we discuss below. Wherever we start, we are eager to get you to the next level. We can also do this in several steps over a longer period of time.Our vision
1. Implementing the employee journey
Every rollout of Plek starts with proper embedding and design. We work in five workflows: access and security, structure and content, and activation and community. We organise platform onboarding, news channels, profiles, team and project groups. And we make sure that important content (manuals, regulations, contact information) is easy to find. Employee ambassador groups play an important role in defining and choosing all workflows.
For our work sessions with ambassadors, we use a proven methodology. One of the tools we use is the Plek board game. Participants quickly get a good idea of the possibilities of Plek. You get to keep the game, so you can re-use or play it with new groups of colleagues.
2. Social communication
The next level in the use of Plek is stimulating social communication. For many customers, this is part of the implementation but sometimes it's a separate step to take after the basic functions of Plek are well-established. This involves embedding social communication in work processes, facilitating self-organisation, and creating a platform for discussion, participation and social learning. It goes without saying that employees are the driving force here.
3. Facilitating communities
Finally, we are happy to help you build internal communities and networks. In our view, this must come from the employees themselves. We show them how they can make the connections themselves to help others by sharing knowledge, creating social connections or coaching. A well-known methodology is working out loud. In addition to job satisfaction and self-development, this also leads to greater engagement and effectiveness.
