The Brief

In this challenge, Accenture saw an opportunity to transform the way it communicates across its organization. It asked itself, ’How can we engage with our employees in a way that helps them thrive in the work they do?’

The Idea

Introducing Good Morning Accenture: a solution that delivers the information that its people need in a single, daily communication.

To begin, it looked across the organization at the number of emails, newsletters and townhall invitations that landed in its employee’s inboxes on a daily basis. It also utilized its platform partners Workday and Microsoft to develop a highly crafted segmentation of its workforce (organizing by parameters like location, team, and so on).

To share the information that was most valued, it set out to understand what the leaders, corporate functions, business process teams and specialty groups at Accenture needed to communicate to its people. It also used data to determine which kinds of messages employees consider to be most important.

It also wanted to make Good Morning Accenture feel truly personal. To that end, it established a consistent, fresh communication tone, used a mobile-friendly design and incorporated photos taken by Accenture employees.
