The Architect of the Capitol, AOC,  is the federal agency responsible for the maintenance, operation, development, and preservation of the United States Capitol Complex. Go behind the scenes at the U.S. Capitol and learn how the stewards of the U.S. Capitol, Library of Congress and Supreme Court stay connected when employees aren’t always able to access a computer.


At the AOC, 80% of employees are more likely to carry a hammer, rake, or paintbrush than to click a mouse during the workday. Their work locations are spread over 460 acres of land and reach hundreds of feet into the air and below ground into a warren of passageways and utility tunnels. Communicating your message to a dispersed workforce that does not have technology at their fingertips called for non-traditional communication strategies.


Discover strategies and techniques to deliver your message to employees wherever they may be, including:


  • Investigating the use of digital signage
  • Deploying digital signs in place of bulletin boards in order to keep information relevant and timely
  • Automating the delivery of content to the signs from your intranet
  • Empowering employees to post content to the digital signs with just a few easy steps
