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.
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 just a wasted investment.
An effective intranet should enable:
- Communicate more effectively with your colleagues
- Tailor your news to specific audiences
- Easily find colleagues that you work with
- Share ideas and opinions quickly
- Give feedback easily
- Work on documents simultaneously
- Instant access to everything you need
- Find the right documents right away
- Intelligently search for the information you require
