In larger organisations, where employees don’t know all their colleagues, communication across professional groups can be challenging. This obstacle was also the case at the Municipality of Ringkøbing-Skjern, where they experienced employees interacting with a limited group of people in their daily work, resulting in inefficient use of collective competencies and know-how.
The largest Municipality in Denmark
The district employs approximately 4,300 people across eight administrative buildings and an extensive list of institutions. The large size of the municipality gives their citizens the benefit of some of the most beautiful and untouched nature, which is a great asset for the Municipality of Ringkøbing-Skjern. However, the size also creates vast distances between the employees at the municipality, making internal communications challenging. Project manager Jette Rask was asked to find a digital solution that could bring the employees closer together.
