Intranet Advent Day 13 – Intranet home page Venn diagram

Intranet Advent Day 13 – Intranet home page Venn diagram

December 13We’re counting down to Christmas with a stocking-filler tip every day.

What’s on your wish list? While the importance of the home page may be lessened by the usefulness of project specific team sites and collaboration spaces, it’s understandable why so may comms teams want to control the layout and content. Ask employees what they want though, and they rarely say ‘more corporate headlines’.

Maybe there’s no need for everyone to share the very same home page – should HR people have a different home page experience to IT people? With a little personalisation, the comms team can deliver different news and views to different departments / role holders and still maintain control. Ultimately, it’s a bit of a balancing act.

Check #intranetadvent for a fresh idea each day.
