How to keep the dedicated staff of Goodflex Rubber Co. abreast of all the new and exciting developments at the business has finally been solved with the help of a dedicated Facebook page for internal communications.
As one of the UK’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of rubber hoses, mouldings and assemblies, it was decided that social media was the best way to update the various teams on progress of the new factory capacity, CRM system implementation and key projects with customers.
And with one of the widest range of polymers including Silicone, EPDM, FKM, Nitrile (NBR), HT-ACM, ECO, AEM, and EA AU, it was paramount that the busy staff could access the information at their own convenience but in an easily accessible way.
Commenting on the new approach to internal communications, Mollie Dawe, resources coordinator said: “It’s very exciting to see all the things that are happening across the business and what other members of the team are working on.”
She continued: “Within two seconds I can be sitting on my phone looking at images of new customer projects or reading the latest update on new products that R&D are working on.”
She added: “What’s really amazing is that it’s almost instantaneous and that things can be posted straight up without the need to create an internal email or newsletter.”
