From an Award-winning intranet to an Award-winning digital workspace


Transitioning an intranet from SharePoint Classic to Modern is no easy feat, particularly for a 20,000+ workforce, but Cox Communications wanted this to be far more than a migration project. 

The aim was to offer a powerful new digital workspace which would be the central hub for communication, collaboration and work. The focus was on personalised and targeted content, integrated experiences, customisable resources, and an improved search.

But the team didn’t want to stop there. With a focus on continuous improvement driven by real-time user insights, they invested in developing a suite of sophisticated measures and analytics.  

Join Jamie Stokes to learn about Cox Communications’ journey to modernise their award-winning intranet, and their innovative approach to defining and measuring engagement.

Jamie will share her experiences leading this project, including:

  • the journey from Classic to Modern
  • leaning-in to maximize M365
  • the value of having the right measurements in your toolbox
  • using data to inform content decisions and improve engagement


Jamie leads the Digital Communications team at Cox Enterprises, where she is responsible for aligning and modernising the internal communications channels across the Cox family of businesses.

Jamie is passionate about simplifying digital employee experiences and reimagining how employees engage with technology. She has won multiple intranet awards for her work over the years and is a featured speaker at digital workplace conferences where she shares her expertise on content strategy and employee engagement measurement.

Prior to joining Cox, Jamie worked in the financial services industry, serving in communications and digital product management roles. She built her first SharePoint intranet in 2005.
