In a time when many employees travel, work remotely, or are part of global brands, social intranets create sense of community and bring employees—and their knowledge—together.
A new white paper from IGLOO Software explains the benefits of a social intranet, as well as the four features every social intranet must have to make employees’ lives easier. Does yours have all the components on this list?
1. An open contribution model. Everyone in the company should be able to contribute content to the social intranet. Make sure every employee, regardless of his or her position, can post without having to go through a cumbersome approval process.
2. A comment-friendly environment. You have a social intranet so employees can share their knowledge and opinions, right? Acknowledge that everyone’s opinions are worth sharing, and encourage comments and discussion to foster an open environment.
