There are various instances when departments need to share information that is only relevant to them, but not to the rest of the company. But how can you share and store that information on your intranet with only individuals in your department or team, and not clutter the intranet for the rest of your colleagues? The answer: Department / Team Sites.
Today, we have more ways to communicate with each other than at any other time in history. I personally receive daily phone calls, text messages, tweets, blog post updates, emails, Facebook status updates and a post card every six months from my dentist. Why then, with so many options, is organizational collaboration still so difficult to get right? Aren’t intranets supposed to fix this? This might sound strange coming from me, the Product Manager at Intranet Connections, but technology alone is not the answer.
The question of whether a hospital intranet will benefit your small hospital is an inquiry many hospitals are making today with your hospital becoming busier and your staff continuing to grow. Keeping everyone at the hospital up-to-date with the latest policies, procedures, intake forms and hospital news is a juggling act that Hospital Administrators and IT Staff try to manage without letting one ball drop. Communicating through staff wide emails no longer seems to be effective. You need communication and collaboration tools that can be accessed on-the-go and are more interactive to keep your hospital staff engaged. A Hospital Intranet
An employee suggestion box (also known as the Idea Share Exchange application in Intranet Connections), is a traditional part of many businesses that dates back to the early 20th century. The success of a suggestion box is tied in large part to the perceived value that a suggestion box brings for both employees and management. In some businesses, the suggestion box is that dusty old box in the corner of the staff room that hasn't been opened in years. For other companies, the suggestion box is an integral part of the company’s success. Perhaps the most famous example of business innovation that

You’re sitting at your desk, when suddenly an e-mail from your boss requesting the latest version of a critical policy document she urgently needs for a meeting arrives. No sweat, you will easily find it on your company’s document share drive. You begin by looking in the likely places starting with your department folder you think it should be in – no luck. No problem, you will just use the search box to find the document, typing in a predictable title. There are plenty of document matches for your search but you know that not one is the document you
What exactly is employee engagement? Engaged employees are happy with their work, committed to the organization and they're willing to go the extra mile to achieve the organization's goals. Why does employee engagement matter? In a recent study published by the Gallup Business Journal, that evaluated more than 1.4 million employees, there was a direct connection confirmed between strong employee engagement and lower employee turnover rates as well as a reduced number of patient safety incidents. This is just the justification your organization needs to invest in an employee engagement strategy that has a direct impact on the quality of
You may remember my last post about stellar intranet experts and thought leaders I researched to get a better understanding of this fascinating and exciting industry. As I’m still fairly new to this industry, I take every opportunity to learn more about intranets as I can.
