To align employees with the Sasol One Identity Pledge, they were looking for a digital solution for their internal event that would provide employees with all the event info, enable networking with each other and gain real-time feedback by engaging with a live Q&A session.
Flock provided the event app for the internal Sasol One Identity event so employees were able to access the schedule and take part in the PLEDGE which then rewarded employees with a gift at the end of the event.
The social timeline came alive with photos, messages, likes, and comments from Sasol members before the event started. Attendees introduced themselves on the timeline, posted photos of their event experiences, and started interacting with likes and comments.Once the event started, people shared content with insights into session materials, started discussions, and continued to interact throughout the event.The speakers engaged with the attendees with a live Q&A session, this feature exceeded the clients expectations.
I was completely unaware of the capabilities an app could bring to an event. It certainly does make for a smoother, more efficiently run event and the audience response to the technology was fantastic!The possibilities are endless and we congratulate the team at Flock for their expertise in digitally applying our event requirements.
Once the event came to a close, the Flock team were able to provide Sasol with the event break down and analytics.
The reports helped them to better understand their employees questions intentions and provided an analysis across various segments and territories.
