Great work often involves more than one person. Collaboration, team effort, remote co-working – whichever way you want to describe it, projects involving working together often yield great results.
With this in mind, employee engagement strategies exist today with the main aim of increasing collaboration within a workforce towards a shared goal. In this article, we look at how Telligent Community can increase employee engagement.
A social intranet streamlines your internal processes
For collaboration to happen, meetings, calls and co-working sessions are often set up. What a social intranet does, such as Telligent, is to cut down on those potential blockers and streamline the whole process to enhance productivity. Telligent mainly does this by providing digital solutions to these blockers. Wikis, blogs, instant messaging, discussion forums and more become the go-to collaboration tools that engage your workforce with much less effort than traditional methods. An instant message or shared blog can be read and actioned any time, whereas a face-to-face meeting is time sensitive and must take place there and then.
Give feedback a place in your employee engagement strategies
When someone comments on a blog, it’s an instant engagement. Add to that star reviews and ratings, and you’ve got the fundamentals of a community, in which participants can rate, review and freely comment on a business’ content. This promotes interaction and gives your business an inclusive, inter-departmental, open agenda. Interaction will keep your employees engaged and more likely to collaborate, communicate and be productive.
Telligent Community does all of the above very well, as well as making use of advanced features, such as assignable achievements that can be unlocked as part of a gamification system, user points that accumulate with activity, and a poll voting system.
Let Telligent’s multimedia functionality add personality to your intranet
Communicating internally through an employee social intranet can bring a sense of unity to a company, as well as promoting productivity and engagement through shared goals. The kind of social intranet provided by Telligent Community is an effective way to increase engagement this way, and is packed with out-of-the-box advanced features, such as wikis for content creation, rich blogs for powerful, bold publishing and a media gallery for secure file distribution and sharing.
All of the above adds a touch of personality to your business’ intranet. With accessible features and an aesthetically-pleasing interface to back up its API-driven, developer-friendly feature-list, Telligent Community works how you want it to.
