Social Intranet

The social intranet serves as a central hub for company news and information. It brings together corporate and user-generated content, optimizes information distribution through personalization, and enhances employee engagement through interactions such as commenting, liking, and discussing. A successful implementation requires user acceptance and thoughtful change management.

The main components of an intranet on SharePoint

Activity feeds and discussions

Activity feeds display updates on users' activities and posts within the intranet. Employees can comment, like, and share posts to encourage interactive communication.

Publishing and reading news & articles

Editors and employees can share information, receive updates on company events, and gain insights into projects. This promotes internal communication and knowledge exchange, strengthens teamwork, and enhances information distribution within the company.

Customizable search functionality

SharePoint features a powerful search function that enables users to quickly find relevant information within the intranet. This search can be personalized to tailor results based on user preferences and role.

Alight Intranet Toolbox

With our Intranet Toolbox, we offer companies a collection of modular and customizable building blocks. These expand the out-of-the-box capabilities of SharePoint Modern with many essential elements, even without the cloud.

The elements of the Intranet Toolbox

All components of the Alight Intranet Toolbox can be customized to match your corporate design. Colors, icons, and the look and feel of the SharePoint page seamlessly integrate into your company's branding.
