How to implement a social intranet, the right way

ITProPortal spoke to Lori Williams, general manager of European operations for Appirio, about what a social intranet is, and how it can help your business save time, increase employee engagement and bring your organisation closer together.

In this video, Lori tells us about how you can implement a social intranet, and the steps you need to take to make sure it works. Lori tells us why social intranets shouldn't be about compliance, but about enablement. Lori also lets us in on the one big mistake that HR departments make when implementing their social intranets, and how you can avoid falling into the same trap.

Lori also tells us how Virgin America made a social intranet work for them, and takes us through what made their implementation work better than most. Find out how Virgin went from an average of 45 seconds of interaction on their old system to a whopping 6 minutes on their new network - and how you can do the same for your business.

Finally, Lori tells us what the future of the social intranet will look like, and why the engagement employees have with their company shouldn't be any different from what they do when they go home.
