Every time you create a company announcement your people receive an email that stating that there is a new company announcement and a link to your company’s MyEKC.

Here’s A Real Life Example:
Joe Cerino just had his company Christmas Party this past Friday. He always tries to take the opportunity to thread Vision and Culture into his remarks every chance he gets. Here is part of what he said…
“You often hear me mention vision and culture. Well, you are going to hear about them again today and most likely, many more times in the future. Why? Because nothing is more important to our success than each of you buying into our culture and my vision.”
Recognizing that some people had to miss the luncheon, he then included his remarks into a company announcement and sent it out to all employees. He wanted his remarks reinforced by being shared on MyEKC. Here is a reply he received from an office employee, less than 10 minutes after he sent the announcement…
“Thank you for sending me the copy of your Christmas Message. I was planning to ask you for a copy before receiving this. I really enjoy working here. I love what I do and I love the customer’s I deal with. It is because of your vision and the culture of the company that I feel this way!”
The take-a-way: MyEKC is a tool and its effectiveness will depend on how you use it in your business.
