Monetary Authority of Singapore: Designing a user-centric intranet

The Monetary Authority of Singapore has launched a new intranet based on SharePoint 2019 and Microsoft 365. The intranet has been designed with extensive input from employees and user testing to ensure good usability and findability.

Features include a clean design, an Employee Resources area detailing key processes, events management, embedded learning events, an apps catalogue, a page detailing joiners and leavers and an enhanced search experience. A mobile app has also been created. App features include integration with the HR system to request and approve annual leave, and a facilities issue reporting system. ‘

A thoughtful approach to change management has been applied throughout the project to help support good adoption. The intranet has been well received by staff.
