Tyco’s products and solutions protect nearly 3 million commercial, government, and residential customers, including 300 airports and more than 1,000,000 firefighters around the world. The Princeton, N.J.-based company has been going through a massive restructuring, moving from a conglomerate of holding companies to a united global enterprise with more than 69,000 employees in 1,000 locations and nearly 50 countries. What Tyco terms Day One of the new company came in September 2012, when it went public as the world’s largest fire and security company.
“Our metamorphosis requires us to educate employees about the difference between the old Tyco and the new one,” says Ira Gottlieb, Vice President of Global Communications. “We need to update them on everything from restructuring to branding. But we don’t want that process to be passive. We want employees involved. So instead of using our traditional intranet and email, we tell our people to go to Yammer to find out everything they need to know about the new Tyco.”
Tyco turned to Yammer to support a workforce that is vast, global, and on different devices. Tyco leads the way in its strategic adoption of Yammer, driving results and impact by marrying key business initiatives to its network. Its network serves as a better social intranet, while helping Tyco streamline workflows, improve project management, and increase employee engagement across the company.
