ESN Adoption

Improve user engagement and
discover new business use cases


Contact us to discuss


Our ESN Adoption service starts with a platform health check, reviewing performance metrics, eliciting qualitative end-user insights, and recommending quick-win improvements.

We then look at group behaviours and use cases to ensure they are aligned with the flow of daily work, and based on this, we help implement the most effective techniques for enhanced collaboration and user engagement.


Our approach delivers tangible improvements, such as tracking time saved by creating more connected ways of implementing existing workflows, or entirely new use cases.

We can also benchmark against the experience of other companies, and provide actionable recommendations for demonstrating business value and deeper integration with key work processes.

The Power of Content

Ideally, people need a mixture of inspiration, information and entertainment from the content they experience on the ESN


Work Relevance

Clear, practical use cases that help people with their work are the key to the ESN becoming a place for work, not just a place for sharing
