Key stats and facts

10,000 employees participating in surveys
100’s of hours saved in repetitive admin time
GSK’s first challenge was to find a way to scale and standardise their onboarding processes, without draining their human resources and provide new starters with a comprehensive induction into their systems and procedures, using Workplace from Meta.
Their second challenge was to streamline a large-scale project, transitioning all sites and team members from the company’s old SharePoint platform to the new one. Ensuring that each site completed all the required tasks, at the right time, for a smooth transition.
GSK also needed to survey employees from various regions across the globe in six different languages. They were looking for a way to effectively reach out to users, present the report they were doing a survey on in a comprehensible manner, and encourage their staff participation and feedback sharing.
GSK have improved onboarding, project management and workforce engagement by using a suite of automation assistants that have standardised processes and improved accessibility.
