Now in its fifth year, Jive received a record number of award nominations
across seven different categories in 2013.

The Engage Employees award recognizes a social intranet solution that helps
foster cross-departmental collaboration, efficiency improvements, problem
solving and innovative approaches to drive adoption.

  oWinner: Thomson Reuters
  oThomson Reuters selected its enterprise social network to break down
    traditional barriers of org charts, geographies and politics among the
    company's 60,000 employees in 100 countries. In implementing Jive, Thomson
    Reuters consolidated 14 intranet sites into one central hub that became
    the gateway for how virtually every employee finds resources, starts
    conversations and develops communities within the company.

The New Way to Business award recognizes an organization that has demonstrated
a strategic organizational change in the way work gets done, for the better.

  oWinner: Schneider Electric
  oSchneider Electric's Jive implementation fundamentally shifted and
    streamlined nearly every internal process and system in the organization's
    Smart Infrastructure division – from agile product development and
    professional services to sales and event planning. A global specialist in
    energy management, Schneider Electric was able to reduce a siloed
    landscape of more than 25 disparate corporate systems down to eight
    mission critical components – with Jive's social enterprise platform
    placed firmly in the center.

The Engage Customers award showcases an organization that has built a customer
service solution that has improved customer satisfaction, increased loyalty
and boosted engagement.

  oWinner: Oracle Eloqua
  oEloqua, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Oracle and a leader in marketing
    automation technology, created a thriving Jive community for customers to
    connect, share experiences, improve their expertise and knowledge. By
    engaging in features like gamification, polling and blogging, Eloqua
    increased the engagement of its loyal and active community by as much as
    55 percent, helping drive sales and renewals while at the same time
    reducing support costs.

The Teaming award recognizes acompany that has used Jive to improve team
collaboration and positively impact business outcomes.

  oWinner: Fidelity
  oRecently, Fidelity upgraded and rebranded its internal social network,
    which has included Jive for a number of years. The company saw immediate
    success with its more than 40,000 associates around the world working
    together across business units and collaborating as a truly social
    business.

The New Way to Lead award recognizes a company that demonstrated a shift in
the way work gets done, from a top-down management style to a more
collaborative and open leadership approach using Jive.

  oWinner: Mylan
  oMylan, a global pharmaceutical company, deployed Jive to accelerate the
    pace of change and innovation across the company. Driven by strong
    executive support and involvement, the company launched its Jive community
    to more than 20,000 employees on the same day. And in just two short
    months, the company achieved its initial goals of employee engagement -
    with more than 70 percent of employees registered and 58 percent active on
    a daily basis.

The Engage Partners award recognizes an organization that drives business
results by engaging their customer network in a collaborative community
environment.

  oWinner: Steelcase
  oSteelcase, a leader in the office furniture market, launched its Jive
    community a year ago to link and engage its dealers, customers and
    partners. Serving as the global workplace hub for information sharing and
    collaboration, the Village helped Steelcase increase dealer loyalty and
    satisfaction and strengthen its brand value and marketing effectiveness.

The Extend Jive award, a new category this year,  recognizes an organization
that developed a solution which leverages Jive APIs and integration
frameworks.

  oWinner: Pokeshot/SMZ
  oPokeshot/SMZ, based in Berlin, Germany, offers products and services for
    Jive. Most recently, the company developed a full-featured learning
    management system, SmarterPath, built on the Jive API. By leveraging the
    power of the Jive platform, Pokeshot was able to accelerate time to market
