Staff morale is closely linked with company productivity and performance, yet HR and Corporate Communications managers often have limited tools to impact morale. Too often HR teams are tasked with improving employee engagement, but with only limited resources and support. Similarly, HR departments often have only small roles in intranet projects because these projects are seen as technical rather than strategic.

Low employee engagement is not a simple problem to fix. It requires lasting attention and shifting attitudes. Enter the social intranet.

A social intranet’s fundamental value is that it gives every employee a face and a voice. This shift in internal communications results in a show of respect and trust that can foster meaningful and lasting improvements in employee satisfaction. Summer picnics and annual recognition programs on their own don’t cut it, and will never offer the authentic and persistent value of a social intranet (what is a social intranet?).

  • Research: Extensive references to research from Gallup, Aon Hewitt and other renowned organizations.
