Everyone now is using their smartphone for finding information and keeping in touch. In our 2015 Engagement Survey people asked for improved communication within the business, so we have launched a new App for iPhone and Android called CXME. It is simple to use, provides two-way information exchange and is available for all employees to download to their phones. The App was piloted with more than 90 employees across the business in recent months, and was well-received.
There are nine simple buttons on the menu which take you to a wealth of information and links about CEMEX in the UK, including the following –
- Health and safety alerts and recording Near Miss Hazard Alerts
- A directory of all employees and site locations in our business
- Link to our online weekly news feed UKNEWS
- Links to CEMEX Lifestyle, our website and our Twitter feed
- Information about CEMEX – products and services, policies, values, background
- Tools, calendar and calculators to help with daily activities, and message boards to post ideas or suggestions
There is also a web version available for anyone who prefers that format. Instructions for obtaining the App were sent to all employees by UKNEWS, by email and by SMS at the end of March, but if you need a reminder of how to access the App, please go to www.cemexuknews.co.uk and search for CXME. All you have to do is go to: www.employeeapp.co.uk/cemex/gettheapp on your phone, choose either Apple (IOS) or Android, enter your employee number, and then create a password. Or you can scan the QR Code shown here. Only CEMEX UK employees are able use the App.
This initiative is another example of our Voices Into Actions. Your “Voices” feedback in the last Engagement Survey was to improve internal communication continuously, so one of the “Actions” is this new CXME innovation.

CXME – Questions and Answers
What is the CXME app?
CXME app is a smartphone-based one-stop-shop for information about CEMEX UK, benefits, news, contact information, and all aspects of your employment at CEMEX. The app is user-friendly and has been created with you in mind.
Can I download the app to my personal and work phones?
Yes. It can be downloaded to your personal and work mobile (if you have one), so you can access information about your job whenever you want.
Will the app work on my phone?
The app is available on both iPhone and Android phones and you will also be able to access the information on the internet.
What if I don’t have a smart phone?
The information is web-based, so you can access all the same information on any computer or tablet that has access to the internet – at home or at work. Most of the information available on the app can also be found on Shift.
Does CXME replace Shift?
No – it’s just another great communication tool. CXME contains only information that is of interest to you as an employee. Unlike Shift, it doesn’t contain work-based information, blogs, processes or forms – these will stay on Shift.
Will the app stay up to date?
Yes, as with most apps, you’ll get regular updates.
What happens if I leave CEMEX?
The employee database that supports the app will be regularly updated with new starters and leavers. If you leave CEMEX then you will lose your access to the app.
What happens if I change my phone?
If you change your mobile phone use same link above to download the app to your new device.
What if I have questions, or ideas about what I’d like to see included in the future?
This is just the start, so there are many possibilities about what could be included on CXME in the future. We want to ensure it stays relevant to everyone’s needs. So if you have any questions or suggestions that you think other employees would like to see, please share them with Jamie Pickles in Communications on email@example.com
