The employee photo video wall in the St. Cloud, Minnesota headquarters of Marco, Inc., a leading technology services provider, uses the X2O platform to provide a powerful visual employee experience. The video wall has become a key element in supporting Marco’s culture as the company continues to experience rapid growth.
When Marco had less than 100 employees, it began the tradition of hanging printed pictures of every employee — sorted by hire date — on a 30 foot by 10 foot wall. As the company grew to over 900 employees, however, the wall wasn’t large enough and the process of sorting printed photos became cumbersome and time-consuming. For its tradition to live on, Marco required a solution that would accommodate the company’s growth and automate the sorting process. The answer was an employee photo video wall.
Featuring 55-inch displays in a 5×2 configuration, Marco’s video wall cycles through pictures of all employees — sorted by hire date — in stunning 1920×1080 pixel resolution. If an employee joins or leaves the company, the photos are automatically resorted. Marco displays additional employee content, such as recognizing winners of the company’s C.A.R.E. (Customers Are Really Everything) award, in a scrolling ticker below their photo. In addition, Marco can easily update and display its office locations as the company continues to expand geographically.
“Our employee photo video wall is an important part of Marco and has become a symbol of our culture that resonates with our employees, customers, and vendors,” said Jeff Gau, Marco CEO. “On tours of our corporate headquarters, it is always a highlight. With the X2O platform, it couldn’t be easier to update content on the displays and keep employee photos sorted.”
