Large-scale changes create engagement challenges and companies like eBay experience them at full speed. With big organizational shifts, including a high-profile activist investor, a significant workforce reduction, a disruptive cyber attack, and the separation of the PayPal division into a stand-alone company – large-scale change was an understatement and informing and engaging employees was a hefty challenge.


Hear how the eBay communications team helped chart a path through the challenges and move forward successfully into the future. Gain practical tactics and solutions to keep your employees engaged and informed during times of organizational change, including how to:

  • Re-establish a focus on the business so employees connect their work to the company’s priorities
  • Use video to inspire and motivate a new way of thinking about the company
  • Re-build trust in leadership so employees feel confident in the future of the company
  • Activate employee social media and mobile access to bring teams and employees together
