Supporting your team: an introduction to Unity Intranet
We’re very excited to announce the launch of Unity Intranet, a brand new product that we’ve created to support teams of all sizes. In a busy working environment it’s easy to lose sight of the bigger picture; our mission is to help businesses and organisations create a common sense of purpose and keep everyone focused on what matters.
What are the benefits of using an intranet?
Implementing an intranet can make a huge difference to the efficiency of a business, as well as the happiness of its employees.
Here are a few of the key benefits to consider:
It improves internal communications
An intranet provides space for the flow (and capture) of information and ideas across the whole organisation, between different
departments, locations and managerial levels. This helps to reduce email (and the need for meetings), facilitate collaboration, promote transparency and disseminate strategic direction.
It helps your team feel connected and empowered.
Working life has changed so much in recent times, with more people working remotely and/or flexibly. An intranet can help ensure that team members feel connected – not just to each other but also to the business and its mission. This applies to staff working across different sites too. An intranet is also a space where people can feel empowered to contribute ideas and feedback, thus helping to drive the business forward.
It provides a central hub for storing information and resources.
Having the most up-to- date version of everything (from contact lists to training guides to policies and procedures) in one secure, easily searchable place saves everyone time and aids consistency.
What features does Unity Intranet include?
We’ve consolidated our previous work developing bespoke intranets for clients, and applied our experience to make Unity the best possible ‘out-of- the-box’ product. It’s easy to set up and customise, with a range of features and tools
