What You’ll Learn:: 

Feeling overwhelmed as you prepare for your SharePoint launch in a limited amount of time?

Find out how Mercer set four priorities that guided its new launch. And take notes on an approach that will make your intranet a dynamic center for innovation in your organization.

In this session, you'll learn about:

  • Creating intranet business value to get adoption and engagement
  • Adoption-campaign ideas to attract traffic and activity to your intranet
  • Best practices in managing intranet blogs and communities
  • Fun, interactive ways to tell your workers about your social intranet
  • How to measure intranet success in your company

Thinking of going social? Find out why Mercer displays, on the home page, personal activity streams, such as people and communities which individuals are following.

Learn about SharePoint profiles, and how badges encourage activity on the intranet. And discover the importance of communities.

“Communities have really taken off,” says Kim Groemling. After all, man is a social animal.

You’ve got tons of buried wisdom in your organization, but can people find it when they need it? Are your blogs an active and popular part of your communications—or something no one wants to write for and nobody reads? Step up your game in your organizational blogging.

How do you increase adoption? Learn about the role of social in getting people involved. Find out how Mercer uses the CEO’s visits to regional offices to create social media discussion.
