Blue Consultancy has produced a number of Discussion Forums which can be a powerful tool when you want to raise awareness of products and get feedback from your customers.
This medium is also great for getting people talking about subjects and posing questions. Blue Consultancy is engaged with the Ministry of Defence on a project which it started eight years ago supporting diversity and inclusion in the workplace called Proud2Serve.net. Part of the success of Proud2Serve.net is the P2SForum, a discussion board for military personnel which provides a place for them to come together, discuss their needs and get support. The project has been recognised by the European Diversity Awards, culminating in it winning the Google sponsored award for Outstanding Employee Network in 2011 and being highlighted in the Global Networking Guide produced by Stonewall.
If you feel your business could benefit from this type of discussion platform or you are seeking to create an employee network please contact us to discuss your requirements.
