Spire has been serving homes and businesses across Alabama, Mississippi, and Missouri for more than 160 years. Spire may be the NYSE’s eighth-oldest stock, but the company is on a mission to redefine what it means to serve its customers — and employees — for the next 100 years.

With that in mind, the communications team set a goal of improving culture and ensuring that employees — two-thirds of which are in field-related positions — stay informed and connected. They started by reimagining the tools needed for effective employee communications, then using data to help determine the next steps.

In this FREE webinar on Dec. 7, Justin Lopinot, Spire’s employee communications director, will share the strategy behind the company’s transformation to develop better informed employees. You will discover:

  • How to set the stage for a digital transformation in your organization.
  • The power of research to determine how employees want to be kept informed.
  • An omnichannel platform that brings the news right to the frontline.
  • The extended use of comms in employee development, training and more.
Don't miss this unique opportunity!
