Announcing Ragan’s 2017 Intranet Awards finalists

These internal communications experts know what makes an intranet great.

Your intranet is the digital gateway to the employee experience.

Is it outdated and slow—or personalized and efficient? The goal of Ragan’s 2017 Intranet Awards was to find the organizations with intranet strategies that truly reflected their superior culture. This year’s applicants included financial firms, health care organizations, travel and hospitality organizations and more. We’re excited to honor those who had the most successful submissions of the year.

Our judges selected these finalists from more than 60 submissions to find the best intranet content and updates from around the world. Next, the judges will review this pool of finalists to name the category winners of Ragan’s 2017 Intranet Awards. The Special Edition announcing all the winners will be released in mid-January.

The Ragan Communications staff congratulates all our finalists and wishes you the best of luck in the final round of judging.
