Adding A Personal Touch. People have a lot of opportunities to create profiles these days; from social media to e-commerce. There may not be a place it makes more sense though than at work employee intranet portal. Whether a business is large or small, one location or global. By having the ability for each employee to create their own profile, including a picture, in order to participate in an organization’s online community, even complex organizations will become a little smaller and more manageable, and possibly lead to better coordination, collaboration and employee engagement.
Keep Information Moving. Perhaps one of the greatest advantages to a centralized communication platform is that everyone involved has the potential to receive the same timely message. This is important whether the news is quarterly earnings, a recent breakthrough in research, a change in policy or simply recognition of a job well done. This news and information drives employee engagement and improves the organization’s brand as an employer.
Having a customizable survey tool for in-house purposes is an incredibly useful feature. From the Intranet module, surveys can be conducted to generate feedback on a variety of topics, employee engagement, training and development opportunities, benefits utilization and understanding. Generating this two-way communication with employees has the potential to increase engagement among staff and strengthen the employer brand.
Employee recognition takes many different forms. Whether employees prefer to operate under the radar without recognition or enjoy a pat on the back for a job well done, recognizing employees is as much about creating a workplace culture as it is that one employee. It may take the form of telling a powerful story , posting a picture of a successful project team or starting an employee of the month program. No matter how it gets done, communicating these successes using a Recognition system promotes positive performance and change.
A community can be defined as a social unit that shares values. The workplace has the power to create a strong sense of community, especially when an employer implements a social networking capability like My Circle. Our Corporate Intranet Software gives employees the opportunity to connect with co-workers to share ideas and collaborate. For many organizations, cooperating across departments and divisions is where some of the best work happens.
Increasing employees’ access to information. For busy employees with hectic schedules, providing access to information, such as policies and documents, without having to contact HR or a supervisor is an important way HR can improve organizational operations. Any number of documents can be stored on an organization’s intranet for reference by employees. It is often beneficial to have employee handbooks, HR and administrative policies, even documents useful to different departments. This type of information repository keeps employees working hard, instead of waiting for answers.
