Connecting people in flexible ways was what drove this Danish company in the direction of Microsoft 365, where a host of tools could be fully integrated to drive successful engagement amongst their employees. As multinational company with people from all different countries, cultures, and languages – corporate communications had to be inclusive and balanced.

Backstory

Let the light shine in

Connecting nature to people helps to create a healthier environment. VELUX strives each day to provide a workplace with daylight and fresh air with products that create bright, energy-efficient places to live, work, learn and play. Based in Denmark, VELUX develops functional, high-quality roof windows. A solution that truly connects people to the outside.

Goal

A bright idea

VELUX had the goal to create a company where great ideas and contributions could not only be shared, but nurtured. They wanted an easy solution that was flexible and allowed them to share content, boost engagement capabilities, and deliver more effective digital experiences for their employees.

Solution

Keep company culture at the center

VELUX was ready to embrace Microsoft 365 and all its solutions to help pave the way toward a more engaging employee work environment. Having the tools available that can expand to their changing needs was vital.

Starting with leadership connection

Each day, the CEO of VELUX takes time from his day to post updates, pictures from his day – whatever it takes to create a connection between him and all his employees. Keeping those communication lines open help them to share their vision, while maintaining approachable.

Keeping their culture of inclusion at the forefront

VELUX takes all employees seriously – empowering them to work with an innovative mindset that helps to drive the culture. They work with their employees to understand what content is important to them and can better each person, to embrace their different cultures and needs.

Embracing workplace communication

News stories are more readily consumed when employees have the ability to translate them– it’s important that their people can navigate in their own language to find the tools and services they need.

The result was content available how and when employees wanted it through a more modern intranet in ways that matter to them in the languages they needed. It was communication that integrated how their people expressed they wanted to consume it – mobile-first, desktop – their news, their way.
