Actionable Results to Complex Challenges

Your organisation faces challenges every day. Some of these challenges need to be solved rapidly and depend on a high level of knowledge and collaboration from your team across functions and geographies, which is a difficult undertaking in itself. So what if you could facilitate a thoughtful, extended dialogue during which people build upon each other's ideas to reach a solution? Better still, imagine you could achieve all this rapidly, without having to fly anybody in avoiding the costs and time constraints of meetings. Jams deliver this experience, giving you access to the wisdom of the great people you have within your company, wherever they are, to produce a clear plan of action and address your challenges.

We provide a guided online conversation that harnesses the collaborative intelligence of your employees, apply cutting edge analytics software to this conversation and then present you with a report containing actionable results. Creating a blueprint for change has never been so quick or easy.

The PwC NextGenLive Jam brought together 1,000 Millennial employees to discuss how they could improve retention. Among the 4,000 comments generated were a number of unexpected themes which have since fed into recruitment and retention strategies, including the desire for global exposure and an emphasis on health and wellbeing.

"Running a Jam allowed us to bring together 1,000 Millenials from across the firm. The global conversation that took place was not only inspiring in its sense of community, but was also rich with insights that we could take back into the organisation. Hot Spots Movement was great at delivering unexpected insights that a survey would never have touched on. At the same time, advanced analytics revealed common opinions based on how people talked about particular topics.

The post-Jam report distilled this vast conversation into four emerging themes, each of which has helped us rethink our approach to attracting and retaining world-class talent. Overall, the Jam has allowed us to very quickly create deep insight into a complex issue, while creating engagement and a lasting sense of community among Jam participants."

The Novartis Pharma HR Jam was a global conversation focused on strategy. Jammers co-created a range of solutions around the challenge of collaboration, many at low or no cost to the business.

"The function of Human Resources has never needed to be more connected as a global community than today. The intensity, energy and quality of the conversation was so contagious that I found myself being hooked to this instant and genuine conversation with no boundaries. And I was not alone. Many of the senior HR leaders ranked to as Jam contributors! With the professional advice and expertise of the Hot Spots Movement team, not only did we engage our HR function before and during the Jam session, but some of our top business leaders were also able to connect with HR associates over this exciting platform in order to gain immediate feedback on critical issues. It has really shown us a new way to build an inclusive and open community."
