Shannex leadership builds employee trust during a crisis – one video receives almost 4000 views.

President Jason Shannon use iTacit for leadership communication during COVID-19

Leadership visibility is important on any day of the week at Shannex, particularly for President and COO Jason Shannon. When COVID-19 closed the physical doors to non-essential visits, the senior management team went virtual with iTacit for leadership communication.


When sites closed to non-essential workers, Shannex leadership needed another way to maintain visibility and trust with front-line teams.

Leadership visibility is a priority at Shannex, with each member of the senior leadership team typically spending time each week at the site-level with senior managers and front line team members. While sites were closed to visitors and non-essential workers, the leadership team needed an alternative channel to maintain visibility and trust with front-line teams.

Daily communication

Organization-wide video messages and daily messages keep channels open.

Videos to replace in-person visits by our leadership team are an example of how the Shannex leadership team flexed to maintain transparency and trust. Shannex president Jason Shannon sent organization-wide video messages to keep channels open and let front-line teams know leadership was standing behind them.


Clear, honest and timely communication keeps Shannex’s 4,500-plus team members informed and engaged as they work on the front lines to protect more than 4,300 residents in retirement and long-term care communities across Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Ontario in response to COVID-19.  Shannex credits the use of iTacit’s employee software with its ability to stay connected with its teams during such challenging times.

Transparency and trust

iTacit was never intended to replace site-level communication from front-line managers. The platform ensures every single employee is reached with clear, honest and timely communication and a direct line back to a leader with decision-making authority.


iTacit is a fundamental part of our organization and the use of the platform elevated our team’s ability to effectively limit the spread of COVID-19. We remain vigilant and continue to work to protect residents and employees. iTacit will remain essential to those efforts.
