Does your company have an intranet? If not, the idea of it seems a little outdated? That’s ok, intranets have been around for decades. For this reason, they are linked with a platform that is old, with an ugly interface and low employee usage. However, nowadays, there are many tech companies in the market that have refined the concept of intranets.  

 

Intranets are now more important than ever. 70% of employees in the U.S are not engaged at work. This number is alarming, and there is a desperate need for employees to have a central place to connect. With a massive increase in the dispersed workforce in the market, companies are expected to have a platform that engages their employees and keeps everyone on the same page, even when they are not in the office. 

 

Implementing a modern intranet to your company can be extremely beneficial. Here are 4 reasons why you shouldn’t wait to get one:

 

  • Improved internal communication. It encourages both bottom-up and top-down communication across your organization.
  • Strong company culture. Easy communication creates an environment for your employees to interact and get to know each other better. It can also be a way for the company to recognize their team and gather feedback. 
  •  Easy collaboration. Both your mobile workforce and your office employees will be able to share ideas, documents and easily work together, breaking the distance barrier. 
  • Better productivity. Connected teams are 20-25% more efficient. An intranet is a central place that makes information easy to find, giving your team all the resources they need in one place.

Implementing it is a simple way to bring numerous advantages for your company and increase employee retention and productivity.
