AWO Saarland uses PIIPE, including the appropriate app, as an intranet solution and for internal communication. Employees are informed about the latest news of the association and are able to exchange information with all employees in the social stream, the so-called AWO dialog. Group logic is used to ensure that information and communication is targeted to specific groups. For example, employees in the executives group have exclusive access to information relevant to them in the form of an access-restricted area in “AWO – Gut zu wissen”. Assignment to the groups takes place via a user attribute from the central Active Directory, but can also be maintained manually via PIIPE. The executive group also has its own social stream for exchanging information with each other.
All employees are able to search for colleagues via the employee directory and then contact them via various channels. Filters by service area make it possible to quickly find a substitute for onsite services in case of acute need. In addition to company news and events, internal job offers are also integrated.
The intranet solution is used by AWO Saarland both in form of a responsive web service and a mobile app for Android and iPhone devices. More and More AWO employees are working in various external facilities and less in the office at the computer. It is therefore important to purposefully reach this large target group within the company.
AWO Saarland uses PIIPE Workplace not only for more efficient topdown communication, but also to better network employees and to enable them to share knowledge with each other. Through that, they are able to develop new ideas together.”AWO – Gut zu wissen” is the starting point for a new communication in the company.
After a successful pilot phase with the delegation levels 1 and 2 of the AWO, the use of the portal was extended to delegation level 3 as well as the district and local associations and has been in productive oeration since the beginning of 2018. The mobile app was introduced in 2019 and is now a daily used component of staff information and retention. It is regularly extended to include more and more employee services for non-desk staff.
