An executive can use the social intranet to set the cultural tone of the company and to inform employees about organizational plans.

They are the ones working for you, after all. An executive can use the intranet to announce new clients and mergers, share information about product releases and expand on important internal updates from various departments.

  3. Have your CEO respond to discussions and posts
  4. Start a bi-weekly CEO chat session
  5. Link company wide emails from the CEO back to the intranet
