Employees are customers too. You want to reach them, you want them responsive and engaged with your organization and your joint customers, and you want to keep them. Today’s employees have little patience  with poor workplace digital experiences. In addition, organizations need to consider the connection between engaged employees and the ultimate customer experience.

Below are a selection of four conference sessions with multiple intranet case studies at the upcoming Gilbane Conference that will be especially relevant to anyone planning for a new or more successful intranet.

E1. Strategies and Lessons from Successful Intranets

Intranets that work provide an invaluable resource. But too often intranet projects either never get off the ground, or struggle for months or even years before being put out of their misery. How do you know when intranets are working? There is only one metric that matters – adoption, at least voluntary, and ideally enthusiastic. Attend this session get inspired by the managers at two organizations responsible for building successful intranets tell you what they did and how.

E4. Growth Without Compromise: Using Intranets to Scale What Makes You Great

Growth organizations – those who are growing fast, from a few dozen to a few hundred or thousands, have a unique challenge. You’re doing things right. But how can you maintain quality and momentum as you grow? How will you stay great when there are more and more newcomers?

Scaling organizational greatness means scaling a strong community, a strong culture, and a strong sense of belonging. How can culture, leadership and community expand to embrace people who don’t work in the same place or have pre-existing relationships? With intranets or digital workplaces. This panel of HR and Communications leaders will talk about the challenges of scaling culture, and how a great intranet enables extended teams to remain powerful. No compromise.
