In brief: Fill your homepage with photos of staff to make your intranet more exciting, engaging, and vibrant.
PUT YOUR STAFF IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Putting your employees front and center is the best way to increase likes, comments and views on homepage news. However, finding images of staff to include with content can be a challenge. We recommend creating a gallery filled with ready-to-use-photos to make it easy for authors.
To stock your galleries, take pictures at company events. Better yet, hire an event photographer so you can be in them too! In the example below, you can see “I Have A Dream” Foundation’s homepage is very people centric. It not only makes the homepage look more exciting and vibrant, but it helps make your intranet that much more engaging.
