Looking for some fresh ideas to make your intranet more innovative? The winners of the Most Innovative category in this year’s ThoughtFarmer Best Intranet Awards might provide you with the inspiration you need.
Last week we profiled winners in our Best Looking category. Today, we feature two clients who surprised us with their creativity and used ThoughtFarmer to solve their own unique business challenges.
Congratulations to our runner-up, New York City Council, and the winner for the Most Innovative category, EngenderHealth!
WINNER, Most Innovative Intranet: EngenderHealth
- Industry: Non-profit
- Region: Worldwide (headquarters in New York City)
- Employees: 700
- Intranet Name: Athena
EngenderHealth recently launched their intranet as a way to keep their employees connected and up-to-date with company activities. With over 500 employees spread across multiple regions of the world, early adoption of their intranet, Athena, was a key goal.
In order to achieve a high adoption rate, EngenderHealth employed a gamification element. As employees began using the intranet, they were awarded badges for completing specific “first tasks,” such as filling out their employee profile and publishing their first page.
Beyond awarding “first task” badges, EngenderHealth continues to use a points system that awards additional badges based on the number of times an employee completes similar tasks, thus encouraging employees to continue using Athena.
We think it’s great that EngenderHealth has found a way to make adopting a new system in the workplace less challenging and more fun. This is why EngenderHealth has been chosen as this year’s winner in the Most Innovative Intranet category.
