Intranet Global Forum 2015 L.A

Global Conference for Intranet Executives, Managers & Contributors.

June 2015, Los Angeles

Intranet Global Forum 2015 L.A Banner

 

The Intranet Global Forum 2015 is North America’s leading dedicated conference on intranets with a specialized focus on the design, governance and management of enterprise intranets and social intranets.

 

THE NEED

The corporate intranet, long neglected and underfunded, has bounded forward several evolutionary leaps in the past two years. In particular, social media and SharePoint are dominating most intranet agendas, or considerations for the future. Many organizations, however, still suffer from sub-par intranets with poor funding, governance, and continual problems regarding content, search, and information architecture. 

The Intranet Global Forum 2015 provides intranet executives and managers in communications, IT and HR with all the tools they need to understand the recent changes, and the fundamental skills for designing, deploying and governing a new era intranet.

AUDIENCE

The Intranet Global Forum is ideal for executives and managers that are involved in a new intranet launch, redesign, or technology shift, and for those that manage technical, business and content components of a corporate intranet or portal.

Use your intranet to drive employee engagement

Steve Crescenzo, Principal, Crescenzo Communications

Engaging employees is a complicated process . . .  but communicators

and their online tools can play a critical role in making it happen

Creating an engaged workforce is a complicated process that involves the entire organization—from leaders and managers to HR and Communications. The question is, where does communications fit in the process? What is our role? How can we use our intranets and other online, social, and multimedia tools to drive employee engagement? In this practical session, noted employee communication expert Steve Crescenzo will show you:

·         How to use your existing online communications channels to reach, motivate, and engage your workforce—even if you don’t have an intranet with all the latest bells and whistles

·         How to tap into the power of the latest communications tools—including social media and multimedia—to drive employee engagement

·         How to help coach your leaders so that they are using the intranet to help the engagement effort, rather than hurting it

·         Five things you can do online that will help employees feel like “owners” of the company

·         How to involve employees themselves in the engagement process—through the use of your online communication channels.

·         How to write content for your intranet that will reach, engage, and inspire employees
