Standard Chartered to provide Jive collaboration tool to 90,000 employees

The bank wanted a modern tool for its young staff, who are spread out over 70 countries

Standard Chartered is set to roll out Jive to 90,000 employees as it tries to help staff work more collaboratively.

The bank wanted a modern collaboration solution for its workforce, half of which is aged under 30, and which is spread across 70 countries.

It adopted the Jive-n internal community solution because it thought it would help staff work more productively and retain more staff and customers.

Our international network is one of Standard Chartered's key differentiators, which is why we've made collaboration a top strategic priority for the company," said Mark Devadason, accountable executive for the project at Standard Chartered.

"Jive will further our competitive advantage by breaking down silos across locations, languages and business divisions so we can all work better together."

The Jive-n solution combines collaboration, internal communications and an HR help desk into one "digital workplace" built on Jive.

Standard Chartered hopes branch managers, business and talent development teams, and even the company's senior executives, will use it to share best practice, ideas and strategies.

The idea is to enable staff to share their expertise across the bank's entire infrastructure, overcoming country divisions and time differences.

For instance, anyone working on a sales deal could use a successful deal's documentation as the basis for their own.

David Macmillan, general manager of EMEA at Jive Software, said: "By allowing employees to work with whatever devices or office productivity tools they prefer, Jive will help the bank foster a wide variety of different workstyles and garner real business value from the best collaboration and communications solution on the market."
