Greater Bank: Launching a great intranet with useful and engaging content

Greater Bank has created a new intranet to engage employees and support them in their daily work. Replacing an outdated intranet that was not fit for purpose, the new intranet (Evi) delivers a modern experience and valuable content.

Highlights include an underlying strong content governance model which incorporates the use of employee feedback and management reporting, an emphasis on providing operational content for customer-facing staff in branches, a prominent social feed and improved findability.

The intranet also has a distinct brand based around the Evi character. The intranet has already had a strong impact with high adoption and levels of engagement with both operational and people-focused content. Improved findability is also supporting customer service.
