You and Your Intranet: A Love Story for the Ages

Author: Tom Cottrill | Date Posted: May 20, 2021

Over the years, we’ve found that most companies have a love-hate relationship with their intranet. It’s a necessary evil. But being the relationship experts that we are, we are here to say it doesn’t have to be that way! Your intranet can work for your company in a way that improves efficiencies, communication, and day-to-day operations. All it takes is a little TLC.

At Ignitro Studios, we’ve given relationship advice on every type of intranet there is. And for your benefit, we’ve compiled all of these tips into one convenient blog post to help you improve your intranet and fall back in love!

  • Make sure the relationship is right for you. If you are using outdated or basic intranet structures, you will never be happy. Find something that will work for the way your organization is structured and how your employees perform their jobs.
  • Keep open lines of communication. The key to any good relationship is communication. Consider adding a plug-in like Slack, Asana, or Zoho to manage conversations and improve workflow.
  • Eliminate confusion. If everyone is moving in a different direction, you’ll never get anything done. Keep track of projects, notes, and meetings in one place accessible by anyone and everyone.
  • Avoid distractions within the relationship. Choose an intranet software that is focused and tailored to the features you will actually use for your business.
  • Be open to feedback. A good relationship never stops growing. Encourage your employees to share their thoughts, frustrations, and ideas for improvement. The only way an intranet will work is if everyone on your teams uses it in the best way possible.
  • Make it personal. All good relationships need a little fun. Add chat channels and threads to share family photos, funny news stories, or plan happy hours.
  • Don’t overthink things. Overthinking is the root of all evil. Keep the intranet structure as intuitive and straightforward as possible for your employees.
  • As with any relationship, your intranet will only be as good as the effort you put into it. As your business grows, changes, and expands, especially during COVID-19, your intranet structure has to change as well. Work with your employees and your web developers to find out how to take your intranet to the next level and fall back in love.
