Ragan Communications partnered with research consultancy HarrisX in the fall of 2023 to understand how CEOs and communications leaders view each other’s roles and responsibilities, what they value most, and when they believe responses to public policy issues are necessary.
Many communicators turn to surveys to get a pulse on employee sentiment and engagement. Other organizations prioritize one metric like Employee Net Promoter Score. While these can be valuable tools, they have their limitations.
Managing or writing for an organization’s intranet can sometimes leave communications professionals with little idea about what “good” looks like. Without a strategy or an understanding of how employees interact with the platform, comms teams might find themselves making little progress. To help navigate these challenges, SWOOP Analytics has analyzed the real-life data from over 36,000 SharePoint intranet pages accessed by almost 100,000 employees to produce the first-ever SharePoint intranet benchmarking report that shows how people use and access company intranets.
Sometimes organizations can struggle to retain their most skilled employees. Many factors can prompt a staffer to seek other employment, including limited learning and development opportunities, lack of engagement and ineffective communication. Business leaders understand that retaining talented and dedicated workers and fostering their career development is key to sustaining growth and finding success. And an organization’s intranet can play a pivotal role in this challenge.
Over the past year, internal communicators have refocused their efforts on the best methods to reach their employees utilizing the most effective channels. One of the best ways to improve an organization’s communication strategy is by recognizing the strengths and challenges of your comms channels and eliminating redundant or ineffective ones.

Internal communications teams who want to maximize reach and engagement with meaningful messages and content are recognizing the need for applications that integrate with existing content, offer dynamic personalization and targeting capabilities, and can be measured in seconds to inform changes.
