What is a social intranet?
An intranet is a digital gathering and/or meeting place for your organization. The social part is the interaction: instead of top-down communication only, any colleague can post messages and actively take part in the intranet.
Why do I need a social intranet?
A social intranet creates a place where you can encourage employee engagement, improve the understanding of your organization’s strategy, facilitate knowledge sharing and collaboration, and distribute work instructions. Therefore, a social intranet increases solidarity and connectedness between both your coworkers and your organization. It also contributes to (more) transparant internal communication.
What makes a good social intranet?
A good intranet addresses the wishes and needs of your organization and your coworkers. Therefore, it is important to map these out and align the goal of your social intranet with them. Then, you set KPI’s (key performance indicators) for this goal in order to measure and by that get a firm grasp on to which extent your intranet meets this goal. Furthermore, it is useful to ask your colleagues for feedback, so you know how they experience it. The results will tell you if your intranet does what you want it to do, and thus if it is a good intranet or not.
