Ambea is one of the leading care companies in the Nordics, with approximately 26,000 employees in various sectors, such as elderly care, housing support and education. Most employees are without daily access to a work computer or intranet. Since 2019, Ambea has been using an employee platform from Benify to highlight its employee benefits. The platform also contains an integrated communication engine.
In the tailor-made platform called Ambea For Me, Ambea employees can log in and view their payslips, use their benefits allowance, and much more. Users with administrative rights in the portal can also create and send targeted communication to employees via email, portal messages and push notifications to their employees’ smartphones.
“We need more communication channels than the intranet because not everyone can access the content there. With Benify’s communication tool, we can reach our employees on their mobile phones – in a platform that they’re already used to using to log in and see their payslips and enroll in benefits”, says Filip Carlsson, Project Manager at Ambea’s communications and marketing department.
The platform is used to quickly reach out with important updates, as well as a complement to the company’s intranet to highlight positive messages:
“Ambea For Me is a channel where we can build the culture, increase engagement and create a sense of community”, shares Filip Carlsson.
