The company intranet is a great tool for fostering communication among employees and delivering important HR and benefits news. But only if employees actually use it.
According to a new survey, many don’t.
Only 50% of employees access their employer’s intranet on a daily basis, according to a report by Watson Wyatt. Most (80%) say their company’s system needs improvement.
Specifically, 50% say searching on their intranet is too difficult.
What are some other ways they can be improved? Companies are moving toward functionality that increases communication and makes the intranet a place for employees to access regularly, according to a recent report by Prescient Digital Media. For example:
- 48% of companies have discussion forums on their intranets
- 42% have blogs, and
- 15% have social networking features.
