Pearson wins Jive award for employee engagement

Pearson has been awarded a prize for engaging employees by Jive Software, a leading Social Business company. The award was announced at the Jive World conference in Las Vegas and recognizes the contribution that Neo, Pearson's employee collaboration tool, has made in enhancing communication and helping Pearson people work across geographies and business units.

Neo, which was launched earlier this year, is available to all 36,000 Pearson employees across more than 70 countries. On average, 18,000 users log on each day. In a recent survey of users, 64% said that Neo has improved their ability to find and connect with people across Pearson.

Karen Gettman, VP and Director, Community and Collaboration at Pearson said: "Since we set up Neo, we’ve already seen changes in the way we work across our different businesses, and this is just the beginning."
