MAN Energy Solutions: Creating a global intranet with users at the centre

MAN Energy Solutions has launched a new intranet based on SharePoint and the Omnia ‘in-a-box’ solution. It is part of a wider digital workplace based on Microsoft 365, with tools embedded into the new intranet.

Highlights of #CULive include an ‘Employee hub’ that contains global and local HR information delivered by content targeting, a ‘We collaborate’ section that supports productivity and allows users to request different types of collaboration space, and a range of different content areas.

The intranet has been designed with a strong commitment to users, based on thorough user research and five personas. Content owners are also supported with training and an innovative content dashboard.

Content governance measures, and an extensive reduction in content, support content quality. So far the intranet is getting high levels of adoption.
