Businesses, schools and nonprofits use intranets to improve communications and productivity. An intranet is a private, online centralized network that all your employees can access. It’s a place for valuable company information such as onboarding documents and organization charts. It can help everyone stay informed and give them the information they need to get their jobs done. It’s purely internal and only for the people within your company. 

According to a Dale Carnegie study, companies with engaged employees outperformed those without by 202%, yet only 29% of employees are fully engaged. Intranets are effective tools to increase employee engagement.
