Is your intranet a relic of a time before iPhones and social media? Before employees worked from home and had cat videos to distract them?
The workforce has changed dramatically in recent years, yet few intranets have changed to reflect that.
If that applies to your organization, you might need an intranet makeover. Fortunately, the experts at the Intranet Best Practices Conference have a few tricks up their sleeves to help you solve these problems:
1. Your intranet doesn’t match your brand’s personality
Lifeless content and a boring design do nothing to strengthen employee engagement and organizational culture. That’s why JetBlue Airways opted for intranet features and content that reflect their brand’s fun, playful spirit.
2. Employees have no way to collaborate with each other
Silos are the enemies of productivity. Ford and Cigna rely on social media tools and employee blogging to keep even large, dispersed workforces closely connected.
