Kiwari X Telkom: Changing How Employees Connect and Communicate
Communication is a significant aspect of teamwork and healthy internal communication is critical for a good teamwork and positive atmosphere in the workplace. In recent years the rise of internal communication apps has allowed companies to communicate directly with employees and monitor their level of engagement.
You might be familiar with Slack, LINE, WhatsApp, or Telegram. All these chat platforms are often used to communicate with employees to discuss work matters such as asking permission for a leave and much more. Using these platforms for internal communication might be efficient for some companies and startups. But as a business grows, more people come on board and the company structure can get more complicated, potentially making those existing services irrelevant for some big enterprises.
But having an internal communication platform is still crucial. Telkom as the biggest telco company in Indonesia, with more than 23,000 employees spread all over the nation, has become aware of the urgency of having an internal communication platform. To effectively manage their employee engagement in real time, Telkom is now working with Qiscus to create their own collaborative communication platform, called Kiwari Messenger.
