Some team successes from 2013

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Capability

As a team, we put a lot of emphasis on sharing what goes wrong just as often as what goes right. But sometimes it's important to look back over a year and see just how far we've come.

These numbers can't convey all the things we've achieved nor can they quantify the positive changes we've seen in our colleagues and projects across BIS as we work to bring digital skills into the department and all our day-to-day work. Still, the numbers are pretty impressive and should give us all a reason to be proud of what we achieved in 2013 and excited by what is coming up in 2014.

The numbers:

  • reviewing, editing and publishing 1.1 million words on GOV.UK
  • moved 7 partner websites and 7,000 pages of information to GOV.UK
  • produced more than 2000 BIS publications on GOV.UK
  • brought 63 million visitors to BIS content online
  • ran a fortnight of digital learning activity for policy teams and delivered more than 100 digital surgeries
  • delivered 340 hours of digital training
  • brought in expertise and best practice in digital communications on topics as broad as community management, data visualisation, digital marketing from the FT, the Globe Theatre, Visa, Sunday Times, Canne Lion Advertising campaign and others
  • put Industrial Strategy teams in touch with farmers, motorists, engineers, architects and residents of Birmingham!
  • monitoring, connecting with, and nurturing thousands of different people, websites, communities to help amplify our messages
  • started building and writing a new intranet and managed more than 10,000 pages of content
  • blogged more than 80 times not only on our BIS Digital team blog but also at the invitation of other online media
  • came runner up for the BIS Permanent Secretary Awards in the category for Working Together (celebrating exceptional collaborative working across the Department, across government or with external stakeholders with the Consumer Bill of Rights work)
  • doubled the number of people following BIS corporate accounts on Twitter
  • delivered 12 policy projects involving digital engagement and outreach work

Well done everyone - keep up the good work 🙂
