  • Analysis
  • A broad variety of colours make the site lively and inviting and they catch the user’s eye.
  • Not giving the intranet a name ensures people won’t get too emotionally attached.
  • A global navigation based on the org chart makes it easy for departments to post their content.
  • Broad, vague, overlapping terms in the navigation make it easy to fit many different types of information there.
  • A downloadable “canteen” menu at the top of the page is a high-value use of that screen real estate.
  • Unconventional colour pairings let users know that a lot of of creativity went into the design.
  • A picture of the CEO on the homepage reminds employees of what’s important.
  • Including the company’s generically worded mission statement helps people feel inspired every day!
  • Promotions about activities in HQ help global staff feel connected.
  • Use of cute pictures for important HR topics helps increase page views.
  • Bright, lively text assures employees that HR projects and topics are interesting and exciting.
  • Wide widgets requiring horizontal scroll bars give intranet publishers more space to work with to convey important messages.
  • Embedding links in “click here” text lets users know that there are links there.
  • Calling generic corporate news something that sounds personal gives employees a sense of belonging.
  • Vague, general news headlines entice viewers to click to learn more.
  • Using ambiguous business language and corporate acronyms shows that company activities are important and the news is professionally written.
  • Grey backgrounds are hip and modern and convey to employees that the company is too.
  • Low contrast between text and background colours really gets people to read homepage content carefully.
  • Using vendors’ names for applications instead of everyday language makes it easier for IT and HR to roll out those applications.
  • Linking to main sections of the navigation from the “Quicklinks” section increases the chance of people going there.
  • Showing HR policies on the homepage guarantees that all employees will read and memorize them in their entirety.
  • Showing HQ operational news to all employees ensures people know how central teams are spending their time.
  • Putting the “search” box in unconventional locations is fresh and exciting.
  • Limiting “people search” to last name only ensures employees only search for people they already know.
  • “Social collaboration” updates from key teams make the intranet social and also collaborative.
  • Vaguely titled collaborative material from team sites is reminiscent of shared drives and turns searching into a treasure hunt.
  • Fun, user-generated content on the homepage, like a “joke of the day”, shows that employees’ voices really matter.”
  • Copying the global navigation into the footer ensures users have key links from the top and bottom of the page.
  • So…
  • So… How does your intranet compare to the most beautiful intranet in the world?
