An intranet is only effective if it engages employees, supports daily initiatives, reflects the organization’s values and ultimately helps people get work done. As an intranet administrator, your job is to ensure that these basic requirements are being met by your intranet platform. So where do you start? Make sure your organization’s intranet has these five elements:
1. Employee profiles
The employee profiles on your intranet should be filled out with accurate and up-to-date information. Making sure profiles are properly filled out should be up to each staff member, but you can ensure profiles are being kept up to date by having all employees review their profile annually. Include “Fill out employee profile” on your onboarding checklist to ensure new hires fill theirs out, too.
