Industry Canada - Blueprint 2020
On the heels of a successful team engagement initiative that relied on OPIN’s engagement and consultation platform Highpoint, Industry Canada decided to make greater use of digital technology to encourage even more employee collaboration and engagement on a much broader level.
Industry Canada had the ideas and the insight it needed within its corridors, it just needed to tap into a little more effectively and consistently. Industry Canada’s first introduction to Highpoint was limited to one branch but it was enough to give the Department a reason to be optimistic that the same exercise would have equally promising results on a much larger scale.
OPIN implemented its engagement and consultation platform, Highpoint, to support Industry Canada’s broader employee engagement objectives. The web implementation helped facilitate discussions outside the constraints of the boardroom. The Drupal powered platform increased the sharing of ideas with hundreds more contributing than anyone had expected. It also led to an easier search of relevant experts and research topics, ultimately resulting in more effective and informed decisions within the organization. The changes were in keeping with an overall Government of Canada objective to incorporate new technology to help innovate and become more effective leading to 2020.
Boardroom meetings have been around as long as the corporation; today’s technology is the perfect tool to build off this structure and adapt to the needs of the modern organization
