It’s nearly been a year of having our corporate blog up and I would like to pause momentarily and share some thoughts on this initiative with you.
When we started out we were pretty clear on what we wanted to achieve. We wanted to enable you to have a clearer and deeper insight into our world. We wanted you to see how we worked, celebrated, met challenges and innovated. And most of all we wanted you to talk to us, to engage us in dialogue, bringing forth newer insights and thoughts.
How successful have we been? I think we have got off to a good start. As expected, members of our Instructional Design group were first off the mark in posting their thoughts and engaging others within the broader worldwide ID and eLearning community. We have also received some very positive feedback for our photo albums capturing life@TIS, from people considering TIS as a potential employer. I think this is because from the outside, an organization often appears impregnable and this is one of the boundaries that we have been successful in lowering.
We are constantly working to involve more folks here at TIS and digging deeper into our various groups and departments to try and bring new perspectives, opinions and thoughts to the surface using the blog as a common platform. It’s fantastic to see people post and have responses come in from around the world and see a dialogue start to take shape.
A big thank you to everybody who have sent in comments, emails and helpful tips from time to time. Stay plugged in!
