Ryanair has launched a new employee engagement app to keep its 19,000-strong workforce informed, engaged and connected.
The Workvivo platform will allow the airline group to boost collaboration among its staff in Europe, who are spread across 90 locations in 37 countries.
Employees will use the app as their communication and employee experience hub. The service will offer them access to the company’s latest news, operational resources and posts.
Ryanair DAC CEO Eddie Wilson said: “Quick communication with all of our people is essential, not only for disseminating information in a highly regulated environment, but it also brings informality through a social media format that our people are more familiar with. This allows all of our people to communicate with one another, share experiences and understand better what we are trying to achieve here at Ryanair.”
He explained that the business is pleased to partner with Workvivo and has branded the product in-house as Fleethub, which is now “the fulcrum of all communications within Ryanair”.
Wilson added: “This partnership comes as Ryanair plans to grow from our current 168 million passengers to 225 million per annum by 2026, which will see Ryanair hire thousands of new staff across the business to support that growth, whilst keeping them informed and engaged in a simple way through Workvivo.”
All workers – including those at airports, on aircrafts and behind the scenes – will be able to access the app on desktops and mobiles, and it will also be utilised for internal recruitment.
Workvivo CEO John Goulding said: “We’re excited for Workvivo to take off at Ryanair. In organisations all over the world, Workvivo becomes the digital heart and I’m excited to see how Ryanair put their stamp on it. We’re on a mission to elevate the employee experience no matter whether you’re working in the cockpit or in the check-in hall. We’re delighted to welcome Ryanair on board with our mission.”
