Submitted by on January 17, 2012 – 10:46 am

Vancouver-based Intranet Connections launched a new product this week, Social Employee Directory which is their offering that is trying to help company’s foster engagement, collaboration and the process of people helping people within their organizations.

“Our goal with the new Social Directory is to impact how employees connect and learn from each other on the intranet, and how social tools like the message walls can help bridge the gap between management and employees,” says Carolyn Douglas, CEO of Intranet Connections. “We brought in common social tools that employees may have had exposure to outside of work, like the wall on Facebook, and the concept of personalization through widgets similar to iGoogle, providing employees an instant commonality and comfort level in using these tools to help them in the workplace.”

Employee message walls are at the heart of the new social directory, allowing employees to tap the collective intelligence of the organization and promote the concept of people helping people. Managers and executives can use the wall to impart the corporate vision, support the culture, and receive feedback in a very easy to use and collaborative environment.
Intranet Connections also uses the wall to promote and elevate intranet content. Every page on the intranet has a “Share Content” feature that will share news, videos, documents, calendar events, forms, training, photo albums and new job opportunities through employee walls.
Other enhancements include the ability to group employees by projects, abilities, skills, or interests through tagging. Employees can personalize with a private workspace in their social profile, creating widgets that will aggregate information from the site and external resources. Subscriptions, site and email alerts, bookmarks, online chat and status updates are all combined to create a powerful Social Employee Dire
Nothing revolutionary here, but a tool to help foster deeper connections around a common goal is a step in the right direction.
