Seaboard Foods is a connected food system in the U.S. that handles everything before the farm and beyond the plate. Their 5,000 employees are spread over six states, including more than 500 pig farms, a pork processing plant, two biodiesel plants, feed mills, and a full logistics infrastructure.
Less than 12% of employees had access to email or the corporate intranet, making disseminating information efficiently to production workers the biggest challenge. It was also hard to maintain a transparent corporate culture. Beekeeper solved these problems by creating a custom employee communication app called SBF Connect.
This case study will tell you how Beekeeper helped Seaboard Foods to:
Communicate critical information to field employees
Maintain a tight-knit culture during expansion
Educate teams and improve operations
"For production workers, a lot of things were simply not communicated because we lacked a communication flow that could effectively reach our teams in the field. We needed another avenue where we could reach employees whom we couldn't reach before."
