About the Communication Need
Electric Boat is one of the nation’s oldest and most respected shipbuilding companies responsible for the design, construction and support of nuclear submarines for the U.S. Navy. In 2014, a contract to construct new submarines meant doubling their workforce, engaging new employees and increasing production each quarter while meeting cost, quality and schedule commitments – an unprecedented demand.
