Start your journey to an engaging Digital Workspace

According to the Office for National Statistics, UK productivity stands at 20% below the average for G7 countries. In order to increase productivity of the workforce there is no doubt that employee engagement should be at the top of the agenda for any business. 

A recent survey discovered that a staggering number of employees do not feel engaged at work, with 48% saying they were only moderately engaged, and 15% claiming to have low – or even no – engagement.

And in a mobile-first, cloud-first world, with more and more people working from tablet and mobile devices away from the office, empowering employees with the tools and resources to engage more effectively with the business has never been so important. 

ClearPeople have developed the Essentials Intranet to enhance business productivity and improve internal communication and collaboration. Understand how it can benefit your business by watching our short video demonstration.

Enhancing Employee Engagement

The purpose of an intranet is to share knowledge, encourage team collaboration and provide staff with the tools to get their jobs done more easily. Key to an intranet’s success is how engaged people are with it. It can contain the best knowledge and resources your company has to offer, but if it isn’t actively being used by your employees, it’s a wasted investment.

The Essentials Intranet has employee engagement at its core. Designed around the needs of your workforce, it enables your teams to get access to the latest news, documents and applications and collaborate effectively with one another from whatever device they are on, wherever they are.

It is not a product - we don’t make “intranets in a box.” Our team of Consultagents have lovingly crafted all the essential elements of an engaging intranet experience from creative design to award-winning UX, based on years of experience and best practice, that are tailored to your specific needs and focussed on successful outcomes.

A SharePoint solution, on-premise or in the Cloud

Built on SharePoint in Office 365, the Essentials Intranet provides your team with an engaging user experience as well as some familiar features that are easy to use for communication and collaboration.

Combining elements from communication and collaboration tools to document management, search and analytics, we can deploy your intranet just as easily on-premises as in the cloud. 

The solution puts people first and features second

Sure, it leverages the best advanced features that Office 365 has to offer, but it’s the simple, user-centred design and information architecture that sets the Essential Communications Intranet apart.

We focus on truly engaging your teams with an intranet experience that specifically helps them meet their daily goals rather than designing an intranet packed with features that go unused. And we work with you to constantly measure user engagement to ensure we optimise its adoption post launch. 

What it looks like

They’ve worked alongside our techies to identify the essential elements that allow your employees to work more effectively. And they’ve packaged these up to provide your organisation with a proven solution guaranteed to improve employee engagement.
