The full content of this page is available to members only.
A few years back, AIG was looking to keep employees informed throughout the financial crisis—and to capture and amplify growing optimism as the company weathered the troubles.
So it redesigned its intranet and published the digital version of its magazine, unifying the company’s multifarious intranets through a universal navigation bar.
Did it work? Did it ever.
