We think so. In any case, you can go a long way towards it with the digital collaboration platform and intranet from Happeo. How, you might be wondering?

Intranets have changed

Intranets are not a new phenomenon. On the contrary. Over the years many an article has been written about how intranets are dying, but here, fortunately, a change has happened. A change that has been absolutely necessary for fulfilling companies’ new requirements for conveying information. Companies want closer collaboration, closer dialogue and seamless sharing, and we need to know that what is being published will actually be read.

Good internal communication is essential for every organization that aspires to effective operation, and what matters is how the company links the different parts of the organization together through communication. It ought to be easy to communicate across departments and with the management. Employees want to feel listened to and seen, but this is often difficult to achieve in larger companies with a lot of employees. And that’s why companies need a platform and an intranet like Happeo.

The many tasks of an intranet

Good internal communication is strategically important because it affects the organization’s ability to achieve set goals, follow strategies, collaborate, build up and share knowledge. With good internal communication we work more efficiently and we generate creativity, motivation and well-being internally. A modern intranet has to satisfy many needs, and be a joint collaboration platform for all the company’s services.

The intranet must be the company’s channel for effective internal communication between employees, and it therefore has ever more responsibility imposed upon it. It is no longer enough to have a forum for exchange of company information from the management. Employees want to participate and be involved in it also. For internal communication to be successful on the intranet, the intranet must therefore:

  • be a central part of internal communication and an arena for discussion and exchange of information
  • be action-driven. It must be easy to ensure that tasks are ranked by priority and to ensure that these are performed in the simplest possible way
  • make collaboration tools and sharing easily accessible
  • be an information source for quality-assured and company-relevant content
  • be a channel for internal recognition and applause
  • be able to provide insight into use analysis

How does Happeo fit in the picture? Well, the platform delivers on all these things. And on so much more. With Happeo you can filter out noise, control what information is important and make sure the employees always have access to the most recently updated information.
