Intranet Tips from the Intranet Connections Team

An Intranet Connections Movember Success

Last month men everywhere gave up their upper lips for Movember, a global movement which raises funds for prostate and testicular cancer research and promotes awareness for men’s mental health issues. Movember 2013 consisted of 1.1 million registered Mo Participants and raised a total of 146.6M CAD!

For the second year in a row some of our Intranet Connections’ team members joined the Movember movement. Our Team ICGROMO raised over $4,300, grew some interesting facial hair, raised awareness about an important cause and had a lot of fun.  The best part?  We tracked it all and promoted our efforts internally using our own Intranet Connections Intranet Software. At Intranet Connections we love how our intranet not only assists us in our day-to-day business needs, but also helps to improve our Company Culture and makes Intranet Connections a great place to work.

Intranet Connections Movember Mo Dog and Mo Sista

Movember is coming to an end at Intranet Connections, but together the ICGROMO Team has put up a great fight in raising awareness and fundraising for men’s health issues including prostate and testicular cancer.  If you missed the Intranet Connections Movember Intro Blog, be sure to check it out to meet the team and discover what Movember is all about.
**Featured Mo Team Members**
The last two featured team members of the Intranet Connections ICGROMO Team are our ‘Team Mascots’ so-to-speak, our Mo Dog Blue Lee and myself, our Mo Sista Karleen Murphy.  While us two Movember advocates are unable to grow moustaches of our own, we have encouraged the Mo Bros of our team in their moustache growth, promoted awareness in other ways and worked to raise a significant amount of funding for the team in support of the funded programs of Movember.

Intranet Connections Team Faces a Hairy Movember

It’s that time of year again, where men everywhere give up their upper lips to increase awareness and raise money for men’s health with a Hairy Movember. Movember is an official global charity which supports world-class men’s health programs that combat prostate and testicular cancer as well as mental health challenges. It encourages men to grow a mustache for the entire month of November, asking friends and family to donate to their efforts.

While the movement is most well-known for encouraging extravagant mustaches, it has been extremely effective in its fundraising efforts as well. Since inception in 2003 Movember has had 3.05 million registrants and raised CAD $447 million dollars, CAD $146.6 of which was raised in the last year alone.  A few of our men here at Intranet Connections have stepped up to the plate and volunteered to stop shaving for the month of November in order to raise funds for this great cause.

Happy Halloween from Intranet Connections

At Intranet Connections we value simplicity, creativity, connections, integrity and team work. We know that there is nothing scarier than disengaged employees, and therefore we  infuse these core values into our software as well as our day-to-day operations.  This Halloween was no different as the Intranet Connections team got together for an office Halloween party full of hilarious costumes, sweet treats and spooky games.  Here are a few of our team members who really embraced their creative side!

There was a great prize incentive for whoever received the most votes in our Halloween costume contest.  Each of us voted for the costume we liked best and at the end votes were tallied and the winner was Michele with her “Michelvis” costume!
