Delphi Automotive, which operates in 30 countries and has more than 120,000 employees, uses Microsoft products such as Office 365 and Yammer for its Connected Worker program. That has led to lower costs, time efficiency and better problem-solving.
With this solution, companies can work like a network to track the progress of accounts, opportunities, leads and campaigns within Salesforce and collaborate with coworkers from any department using Yammer.
The Hong Kong-based Esquel Group – which has a core business of making cotton tops for companies such as Ralph Lauren, Nike and Lacoste – has embraced Yammer to connect far-flung operations and lines of business. It’s also helped build the company’s culture.
Thomas Asger Hansen, head of Grundfos’ global working culture and social business teams, has put together a “social business cookbook.” Hansen’s recipe for problem-solving through crowdsourcing includes posting questions and creating private working groups in Yammer.
Yammer’s second Give Day sent more than 150 employee volunteers to nine different San Francisco organizations, where they served and prepped food, tutored students, tended to community gardens and gave essentials to the homeless. They also taught lessons on technology.

On The Yammer Blog, Li goes through three steps to build your strategy.
