ThoughtFarmer Best Intranet Awards 2013: Winners in the Best Looking Category

In April, we ran our annual ThoughtFarmer Best Intranet competition. Our clients entered their intranets in 3 categories: Best Looking, Most Innovative, and Best Collaboration. Today we’ll profile the winners in the Best Looking category.

Badge: Best-looking intranetWINNER, Best Looking Intranet: Bank of Tennessee

  • Industry: Finance
  • Region: USA
  • Employees: 275 in 19 locations
  • Intranet name: JET (Just Employee Talk)

Bank of Tennessee ran a naming contest to determine the name of their new ThoughtFarmer intranet. Once the name “JET: Just Employee Talk” was selected, they took the name and ran with it! An airport theme permeates their intranet and it works. Clever headings like “Arrivals” for news items, “Check-In” for status updates and “Scheduled Flights” for upcoming events tie the motif together. Even the login screen looks like a boarding pass. Great job, Bank of Tennessee — this looks like an intranet that’s fun to use!

Badge: Honorable mention, Best-looking intranetHONORABLE MENTION, Best Looking Intranet: U.S. Military HIV Research Program

  • Industry: Medical research
  • Region: D.C. area, USA
  • Employees: 350
  • Intranet name: RetroNet

Are scientists too serious to have a “punny” intranet? Not at the U.S. Military HIV Research Program! They study HIV, which is a retrovirus, so they called their ThoughtFarmer “RetroNet”. Then they played up the retro theme, using shapes, fonts and colours that evoke images of the Jetsons and other 60s pop culture. Another fun intranet for serious business!
