IBM is providing Fluor Corp. with an enterprise social business intranet in an effort to connect Fluor’s 43,000 personnel worldwide and the company’s various business ventures.

“Social business has really changed the way organizations of all kinds interact with their clients and their employees,” Alistair Rennie, general manager of the social business at IBM, said Wednesday.

“Today, organizations are thinking entirely differently about how to activate employees to drive business outcome. Social business is driving a smarter workforce.”

More than half of Flour’s global workforce was integrated into the network within a few weeks of implementation including uploading profile pictures, detailing expertise and building new contacts.

IBM Connections and IBM WebSphere Portal support the intranet which provides 11 news and information portals and 1,200 collaboration spaces.

“In 2012, Fluor celebrated its centennial, prompting us to evaluate how to maintain an edge in an increasingly competitive global marketplace,” said Say Lim, vice president of IT.Fluor_logo

Fluor currently operates 60 offices in 6 continents and has projects in its portfolio including chemicals and petrochemicals, manufacturing, mining, oil and gas, infrastructure, power and renewable energy.

The company hopes that the intranet will assist them in attaining more effective communication and collaboration in order to produce creative innovations for their construction and engineering projects.

The solution will also empower their workforce to share real-time information across the entire Fluor organization.
