Today, more than ever, organizations are seeking to keep their employees informed and engaged as we adapt to a primarily remote working scenario for the foreseeable future. A well adopted intranet can help to:
- Enhance employee engagement and communication
- Increase collaboration and productivity
- Streamline messaging and reduce email
- Facilitate discovery of news and resources
- Enable and manage remote employees
- Ensure accessibility to critical information
There are lots of platforms on the market to address the need to provide employees tools to be efficient and engaged with their team and the organization at large. SharePoint has been a viable intranet portal option for many years – but considered somewhat basic in functionality and lacking the visual pizzazz of some of the other offerings. With all of the new features and functionality offered in SharePoint Online, it just might be time for you to check out what’s new in Modern Communication sites and reconsider SharePoint Communication sites for your intranet.
At the Microsoft 365 Virtual Marathon, held this last May, our Director at Compass365, Ingrid Camill, presented a session on Can SharePoint Really Be Your Intranet – What’s New in SharePoint Communication Sites. In this session, Ingrid discusses some of the exciting new features available in the SharePoint Communication site template, along with a how-to and best practices for implementation.
This session is for Key Business Stakeholders and IT Professionals alike. For more resources related to visualizing, building, and maintaining your intranet, see these posts as well:
