In today’s ever-changing organizational landscape, meeting the diverse needs of employees becomes a game changer. It’s not just about handing up information on a silver platter; it’s about serving it up in a way that leaves them purring with satisfaction.
Creating an intranet that meets the diverse needs of employees is a unique challenge. Enter my two cats:
Gypsy, my curious cat, enjoys being self-reliant and prefers to do things on her own without my help.
Delta, my social cat, thrives on time with others and actively seeks interaction with people.
Probably sounds like employees at your organization. So, how can one intranet keep all the cool cats happy?
