Intranet Manager, Holly Andy-Ivie, says that they have been thrilled with the response from employees. “We did a soft launch as we don’t think it works to have one big day of excitement and then nothing to follow.”

Since then, usage has been growing steadily. The Enterprise Social Network has been really popular as a way to solve problems. “It started out with people posting requests for batteries, and since then it’s just snowballed”, explained Holly.

Their hard work was recently recognised with an Intranet Design award from the Nearly Normal Group (NNG), and will feature in the 2016 ‘Bumper Book of Intranets’ annual.
