In brief: A naming contest is a great way to help employees build a connection to the intranet, keeping them engaged after launch.
ENGAGE EMPLOYEES EARLY ON

After a few selection rounds (all moderated via the intranet) Beacon was chosen. But crowdsourcing a name did more than just create a unique identity, it helped garner user buy-in and fostered a sense of ownership.
Initiatives like this contributed to an eight percent increase in company-wide employee engagement. Want to find out what other amazing things Central 1 accomplished with their intranet? Read the full case study.
