Hong Kong-based airline Cathay Pacific has rolled out Unily's digital workplace communications software as part of its latest digital transformation efforts.
The new digital employee portal will connect employees based across the world including 26,000 Cathay Pacific employees as well as a further 10,000 business partners.
Mirroring well-known social media tools, Cathay Pacific employees will be able to like, share and comment on relevant company news feeds and share work projects in real time.
Additionally, the platform will also aid communication across borders and business functions.
“The Unily platform has provided us with a canvas from which to transform the way we organise and curate content,” Carly Nankin, Head of Internal Communications and Engagement.
“In turn it means our employees can access relevant content more quickly, choose how and when they stay informed, and take advantage of opportunities to collaborate more effectively with colleagues.
“The new portal is the centrepiece of Cathay’s wider commitment to its digital employee experience programme”
Cathay Pacific’s new digital employee platform is expected to roll out in the second quarter of 2019.
Anthony Woo, Unily CEO APAC added: “Working with Cathay Pacific is a huge opportunity for us as we expand rapidly in the APAC region and the aviation sector.
“Airlines are complex, customer focused organisations that require robust and user-friendly technology to enable their employees to stay connected despite being highly agile.
“We’re very proud that Unily was chosen to deliver this experience for Cathay Pacific.”
