Port of Los Angeles (Calif.) – LAtitude Video eNewsmagazine

The result of creative brainstorming between the Port of Los Angeles’ communications and its business and trade development teams, LAtitude was designed as a communication tool which would allow the port to connect with its current and prospective business clients in a unique and engaging format.

LAtitude is packaged in a website format, which is e-mailed directly to between 12,000 and 15,000 port and maritime industry stakeholders. In addition, a special TPM Edition of LAtitude is distributed each March to the nearly 2,000 attendees of the 2014 Trans Pacific Maritime Conference held in Southern California. LAtitude is also available directly on our website at www.portoflosangeles.org/latitude and the videos are available on the LAtitude YouTube channel as well.

Port of Los Angeles (Calif.) – ‘All Hands on Deck’

In 2012, as a result of an employee survey given to all Port of Los Angeles employees, a significant communication gap was identified between senior executives and all other port employees. In an effort to bridge this gap and strengthen communication relations on all levels, All Hands On Deck was launched. The creation of Cynthia Ruiz, deputy executive director of External Relations, All Hands On Deck is a series of three to five minute video interviews of port employees by senior executives. Each week, a new employee video interview is emailed to all Port of Los Angeles employees. This interview format has created the opportunity for senior executives to get to know port employees on both a professional and personal level. Additionally, it provides an opportunity for all port employees to get to know the personal side of the senior executives. Finally, the All Hands On Deck interviews offered all senior executives and staff glimpses into a day-in-the-life of port employees, both at work and outside of work, that they would otherwise have known.
