How Powell Teams supports Powell Intranet for more connected employees

by Yvonne Harris

Over the last few months, organizations have been confronted by an unprecedented situation that led many collaborators to discover remote working for the first time. This resulted in an explosion of video conferences and remote teamwork, imposing tools like Microsoft Teams at the center of business communication. These tools have now become as important as an intranet to keep employees connected.


What we found

As you know, Microsoft Teams is an excellent platform to communicate and share documents but it requires support for users to help them find relevant information and create new Teams in an optimized way.

Without proper governance, there’s a risk in distracting the end-user from an essential productivity tool.

At the same time, Human Resources and Internal Communications teams have heavily invested in the deployment of intranets. Intranets, which have often transformed into Digital Workplaces, are used to share corporate knowledge and access to the latest information. These teams need to protect and amplify their investment by proposing a way to consume content, regardless of where the final user finds it.

What companies are asking us

Many organizations are in the process of putting in place new ways of working, like hybrid and full remote. This is encouraging them to go further in developing collective knowledge management, continuous teamwork, digitized processes like hot-desking, and integration of remote collaborators.

The opportunity is therefore to increase productivity and agility based on solutions already deployed in a company committed to connecting its employees.
