5 Reasons why your company needs a collaborative intranet

Posted by Julia Borgini on Feb 28, 2018 9:00:00 AM

Technology makes it very easy for teams to communicate with each other today, whether it's directly one-on-one or through a community board or group. Yet with all these tools, Gallup found that 85% of the American workforce is actively "disengaged" or "not engaged" in their work.

Do your employees feel proud to come to work like they do at Countdown New Zealand?

Posted by Bill Cushard on Jan 18, 2017 5:58:00 AM

Employee engagement requires a lot of work, especially for distributed organizations. There is almost nothing better for employee engagement than high-frequency face time between management and employees having open conversations around the mission of the company and each person’s contribution to it. For most organizations, that requires lots of travel, and no matter how much an executive team travels, there are still the other 360 days of the year when there is no executive visiting an office.
