We’re counting down to Christmas with a stocking-filler tip every day.
When Frederik Zebitz talked to us about his digital workplace training programme, he also let slip a little gold comms nugget.
The IT and Comms teams found the new coffee machines that we’re being installed in break-out kitchens had video screens!
“Everyone talks about ‘water cooler’ conversations, but we literally have talking coffee machines.” ~ Frederik Zebitz
So, working with HR, the IT and Comms teams started delivering instructional and informational videos right from the coffee machines, as you can see below. Videos are saved on to USB sticks, and then the friendly coffee people actually deploy the video file to each machine. Wisely, videos rely on animation and subtitles – sound is not used, to save nearby colleagues from being driven mad by any looping narration.
