  • Business needs/problem

    With a workforce of:
    • 80% non-desk workers,
    • mobile employees,
    • and users that expect mobile and consumer-grade content,
    we see a workforce that is less tied to a desk during their workday and less likely to visit an intranet front page.

    Keeping employees up-to-date with the latest corporate content, business tools and curated content for specific audiences and groups can, therefore, be a challenge. According to Forrester, “a lower percentage of global information workers say that they’re satisfied with their employee intranet or company portal than with any other productivity tool”*. We see internal communications teams struggling with getting users to interact with corporate content. And we see more and more users turning to the engaging and interactive interface of Teams, on behalf of other applications.

    This brings a challenge for Communications and HR teams that need to inform the entire workforce with news and important information, ensure everyone is compliant with company practices and the latest information about products and services, create a common company culture, create advocates among employees and ensure high retention rates.

    IT is challenged by people getting lost in the fragmented landscape of the digital workplace, not employing the tools recommended by IT and, in some instances, even employing shadow IT. This doesn’t just negatively affect productivity but can make up a risk for the IT security.
