How the social intranet has been given a central role in the municipality of Montferland's hybrid working

At the beginning of this year, the officials of the municipality of Montferland received a laptop. This computer is secure and supports employees in hybrid working. Hans Volbeda, senior automation and functional application management: “Everyone now has the same digital workspace that you can start from the intranet. From the intranet, there are links to various applications, including Microsoft 365, such as Outlook and Teams.”

According to Hans, it's all simple and organized. “When you log into the intranet, you'll see a widget (a small program) with Outlook mail and the Outlook calendar in the top right corner. Below you will see applications for social matters, for example. In addition, there is the face book. When you hover the mouse over the photo, you see that person's agenda. This is very useful for receptionists, for example.”

The other employees are also satisfied with the new digital workplace, says Hans. “The intranet has become the place to go to do your work.”
