A properly designed company intranet makes employees more
efficient and can dramatically reduce HR costs. Unfortunately,
many companies have built intranets that, while technically
sound, fail to meet the needs of the employees. Therefore,
they sit and gather dust, failing to provide the benefits
promised. The focus must be on identifying the needs of
the users and building an architecture and interface that
meets those needs, the technology choice is secondary.
Think about the following examples of how an intranet can
help your business.
- Track sick/vacation and personal time
- Communicate corporate HR Policies
- Company news
- Web-enable forms or download sample forms
- Gather employee feedback
- Update employee contact information
