McKesson Corporation (USA)

Building a mobile channel for employees

About my talk

In an effort to engage and support hard-to-reach employee audiences, including distribution centre workers and folks in the field, McKesson decided to launch its first-ever mobile channel for internal use. Although initially lacking standards, best practices or processes for creating and launching employee apps, two years later the company boasts a mobile centre of excellence, a growing inventory of apps, a repeatable awareness campaign and metrics showing steady progress. Andy will show how he and a small group of colleagues overcame the obstacles that other companies have not.

This session will discuss:

  • a rationale for going mobile
  • why to tackle governance first
  • app priorities, promotion and success measurement.
