Winnebago eliminates board reporting fire drills

Winnebago eliminates board reporting fire drills
March 3, 2015

Winnebago Industries, Inc., like many other companies, was no stranger to the occasional fire drill when preparing and delivering its materials to the board. It was a stressful and time-consuming process with several people working on the materials. The team struggled with information accuracy and how it was presented.

Faced with a less than ideal process, Beth Gilbertson, Executive Assistant, and Sarah Nielsen, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, decided that things had to change.

So they adopted Wdesk Binders.

Wdesk Binders look exactly like the manual book that our board gets. It’s tabbed, and you find everything just as you would in a hard copy package.

— Sarah Nielsen, Chief Financial Officer, Winnebago Industries, Inc.

Winnebago has seen many benefits since making the switch—eliminating stress and streamlining board member communications. Now, a job that used to take three people to complete, only takes one.

It is confidential. It's quick. It's easy.

— Beth Gilbertson, Executive Assistant, Winnebago Industries, Inc.
