The Coca-Cola Company employs more than 100,000 people and operates in more than 200 countries. At a time of rapid change both in the marketplace and the company’s structure, there was a pressing need to communicate with the company’s global workforce about strategic decisions, leadership changes, global marketing campaigns, efforts to improve the day-to-day employee experience, and a host of other challenges.


Coca-Cola Connect launched in June 2015 to serve as the company’s internal hub for news. Offering “real talk for real people” and “news you can use,” a network of editors producing stories designed to inform and engage employees.


Discuss the lessons learned from the first year of Connect and learn how to utilize your intranet to empower employees, including how to:


  • Focus on priorities to best deliver news to employees 

  • Ignite interest company-wide with important topics 

  • Make internal communications more relatable, casual and authentic 

  • Overcome challenges to prioritize and develop a consistent editorial voice across multiple geographies and business units 

  • Create engaging, personal and non-intimidating town halls with executives
