Today marks an exciting milestone as we welcome our ARO colleagues to Bridge, our innovative AFS intranet platform. For team members at the corporate office and distribution center, Bridge has revolutionized how we access information and communicate. Now, with ARO joining, we have a unique opportunity to unite as One Associated in ways that were once impossible.

Bridge: Bringing Us Together

Bridge has been a game-changer, providing streamlined access to essential information like benefits, payroll, and company updates. With ARO now on board, Bridge will further enhance our collective productivity and connectivity. Key features include:

  • Streamlined Access: A centralized hub that simplifies our workday.
  • Content: Stories, news, and company updates on any connected device.
  • Intuitive Navigation: Easy access to a variety of resources directly from the home page.

Engage: Fostering Community

ARO team members will also gain access to Engage, our Microsoft-powered community platform. (Think a safe, private social media platform.) Engage has already helped team members at the corporate office and distribution center to collaborate and build relationships. By joining “communities” based on shared interests, we can connect and support each other across different teams and locations company wide.

Accessing Bridge and Engage

ARO team members can access both platforms through the Microsoft Teams app on cellphones, desktop computers, and facility kiosks. Instructions are available to help everyone get started.

One AFS: Stronger Together

By welcoming ARO to Bridge and Engage, we are taking a significant step towards uniting our company. Let us embrace this opportunity to work together more closely, share knowledge, and support one another, truly embodying the spirit of One AFS.

Welcome to Bridge and Engage, ARO! We are thrilled to have you join us and look forward to a future of enhanced connectivity and unity.
