Bringing Reckitt’s R&D community together

Reckitt
The Science Inside Symposium

The Brief

Reckitt’s R&D function spans the globe to find scientific solutions to problems brought by the world’s best loved hygiene and health brands. Naturally, they have a lot of people working to tackle these challenges – over 3000 colleagues across 6 countries, in fact.

 

They wanted to run an event to connect this global community on a deeper level, encouraging greater collaborative working across the business while providing plenty of opportunities to share knowledge and innovative thinking to demonstrate the power to tackling things together.

The Solution

The solution

Given how distributed Reckitt’s colleagues are worldwide, we took a hybrid approach to this event to enable maximum participation – connecting 150 live attendees at their Innovation Pathway in Hull with a further 3000 via an interactive digital platform.

 

Everyone had the opportunity to watch live presentations from our main stage in Hull and explore an exhibition showcasing different R&D teams work to bring everyone closer to the work delivered across the world.

 

The platform replicated all live content and on-demand elements so nothing was missed out, regardless of timezone or participation type. Q&A functionality allowed virtual attendees to interact with the live elements and in-person attendees themselves, driving further engagement between audiences.

The Results

A hybrid expo that had everyone coming back for more. 98% of attendees rated it 4 or 5 stars, with 70% stating that they found the content extremely beneficial to them.

 

As the platform was packed with additional content and features, many people dipped back in to learn even more over the 6 months it remained live which kept engagement high.

 

The success of the event means it is now established on Reckitt’s calendar and planning for the next event is already underway.

It was an amazing event to recognise the incredible scientists across the organization and to connect with colleagues from around company. The organizers and presenters both did an amazing job.

What a fabulous event. I absolutely loved the entire experience! It felt good to share out the science we are working on with others and witness what other colleagues are working on as well.
