Effective Intranets employees love to use? Yes, it is possible.

Denise CoxDenise Cox·

Whether creating, launching, rebooting or driving awareness and adoption – The Intranet is always on our mind. What is the magic formula for an effective intranet? One that employees love to use?

Intranets remain essential within an organization. In our recent report, Newsweaver/Melcrum’s ‘IC and Technology’ survey 2014, it emerged that intranets are the most used communication channel –  93% of communicators use them. (Followed closely by the email channel at 90%.) BUT effective intranets are still elusive to communicators. In that same survey, email was No. 1 at 83%. Intranets were No. 2 –  but only 48% found them effective. Part of the problem lies in this finding: 68% are not satisfied with their ability to measure the effectiveness of their internal communications. If you can’t measure, you can’t improve.
