In the manufacturing industry, plant employees are the heart of a company. Connecting employees to what matters most to the company and plant is vital, and communicating with employees in a plant environment comes with many challenges and poses some of the toughest work for communications teams and plant leaders.


For Tenneco, improving communication in their plants became top priority with more than 80 plants around the world, important business and operations changes being introduced, and a commitment to improve employee engagement.


In this session, you’ll learn first-hand how the company’s Global Internal Communications team, together with The Grossman Group, was able to successfully engage their offline employees, including how to:


  • Assess the health of your organization’s communication strategies
  • Measure the effectiveness of your employees leaders
  • “Triage” work spaces with the most direct communications and business needs
  • Use “self-service” tools, templates and resources for your network of leaders, HR and communications teams around the world
