In collaboration with Rockit, the centre for fintech and sustainable innovation, as part of Rockit Impact Accelerator
As part of Rockit Impact Accelerator, Swedbank Lithuania worked with an Estonian startup CompAct. Swedbank Lithuania pointed out a challenge of finding a tool to be used for internal employee engagement on the topic of sustainability. The tool had to be easy to use, easy to integrate and provide knowledge not only on general business sustainability topics but also on Swedbank's internal sustainability strategy. CompAct excelled in ticking all the boxes. CompAct adapted their solution to work in the Microsoft Teams environment and provided personalised content feature that was non-existent before the pilot. After 2 months of running the pilot, all KPIs were outperformed. As a result, Swedbank Lithuania tested multiple hypothesis on employee engagement, internal communication and sustainability awareness while CompAct team tested a new product extention, a new platform and is currently fundraising to scale the solution.

"The chatbot operates on Teams, which is the platform that we use every day in Swedbank. I’m starting a relationship with this chatbot, to be honest. It's there whenever I need it, asking questions, making me curious and wanting to know more. I love it"
