Employee engagement is increasingly at the forefront of the discussion around organizational performance, and most of that discussion is not positive. George Dickson from Bonusly talks about the importance of employee recognition in reigning in an increasingly disengaged workforce.
According to Gallup, only a third of American employees are engaged at work. Worldwide, that number drops to a meager 13 per cent.
Why does that matter?
There’s a significant cost associated with employees who aren’t engaged. By some estimates, that cost reaches as high as $450 billion to $550 billion in the US alone. The cost manifests itself in many forms, from poor retention to productivity losses and even safety incidents.
With so much at stake, it’s important to take employee…
As new employee onboarding and software user onboarding converge, Pendo's Michael Peach explains five key principles to optimizing both experiences.
What is onboarding? If you asked an HR executive, and the Sales or Customer Success leader of an enterprise software company, you’d probably get quite different answers. The HR executive would talk about employee retention, and the sales leader would talk about recurring revenue. Probe a little deeper, however, and you’d start to see a lot of similarities in what they tell you.
Both leaders are focused on a systematic approach to bring new people into a complex environment. They both have…
Most companies have an org chart, and most people use it on a regular basis. You browse the org chart to find information for a specific purpose – usually when someone joins the company, to put a face to a name, to look up contact information, or any time you need to get in touch with someone or find important information about work.
Navigating your organization effectively – finding people, information, and expertise – is now more important than ever before. Teams and projects are virtually distributed across the globe. But the org chart hasn't evolved with the modern organization. As a result, the experience of finding people and information is largely fragmented and inefficient.
Think of what typically happens when you need to find insight and expertise within your organization. You start by identifying the person…
We're excited to announce we've made the list for the second year in a row, with 138 percent revenue growth.
After recently being named Best Intranet Software by CMS Critic, we're celebrating more recognition today, this time being named to Deloitte's Technology Fast 500 as one of North America's fastest growing companies.
With the rise of the digital workplace, it's not surprising that Igloo continues to grow. Innovative companies are turning to digital workplace strategies as a way of retro-fitting modern tools and technology into their current infrastructure, as they brace for the next wave of…
This week we’re celebrating our most recent accolade, being named the Best Intranet Software by CMS Critic.
The 2016 CMS Critic awards are determined by vote, so a huge thanks to all our friends and customers that logged on and voted for their favorite intranet.
This recognition follows Igloo receiving the TMT Technology award for Most Cutting-Edge Cloud Hosted Intranet Platform, and reflects our continued focus on pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the new digital workplace.
While an engaged and informed workforce is fundamental to staying ahead of the curve, simply connecting people…
If you work at a start-up or SMB you may be thinking: my company doesn’t need an intranet. We’re too small. An intranet is something for corporate offices, not for environments like the one you work in. We communicate and collaborate just fine. Our question to you: do you have a central place to store all the content, knowledge, and expertise your employees need to be productive and engaged at work?
Hear us out. Intranets aren’t just for big companies anymore. As we enter the era of the digital workplace, many smaller companies and organizations are starting to realize the benefits of creating an online hub that helps people connect and get more work done, from wherever they are. You may not need everything an intranet can offer… yet, but getting a head start now will put you in a great position to tackle your next big challenges.
We’ve compiled four common symptoms your company may be…
Progressive companies are turning to digital workplace strategies to prepare for the next wave of business. And modern, social intranets are becoming the tool of choice to help them realize this vision.
But while social software holds a lot of promise, its value can fall short without a purposeful application. With built-in social functionality, a modern intranet can help create a common ground for aggregating people, tools, and information into a collective digital work experience.
Aragon Research acknowledges this shift and highlights Igloo's strength in leading this digital transformation journey, naming us an "Innovator" for the second year in a row.
In order to be named an “Innovator”…
In the second part of our series, we explore the business challenge of knowledge management. Find out how three modern knowledge-sharing practices can result in some serious benefits for your company.
The modern workplace is increasingly disjointed, with knowledge workers and expertise spread across multiple offices and geographies. This makes it virtually impossible to know what information exists and where it’s all kept. We can make one assumption, however: a majority of a company’s information lives on hard drives, content stores, file-sharing apps – and in the minds and memories of employees. This can pose a few problems:
- People don’t have access to the information they need to do…
In this four-part series, we’ll take an in-depth look at some of the top challenges organizations face that can be alleviated by a modern intranet. In the first part of the series, we’ll talk about the issues companies are facing with collaboration.
At Igloo, we’re always listening to our customers so we can provide solutions to their digital workplace challenges. Over the years, we’ve surveyed customers, prospects, and curious onlookers about what inspired them to seek out a new technology for their organization, and here were the top four stated challenges they’ve shared:
- Collaboration — 36%

- Social workflows — 14%
What makes these numbers particularly interesting is…
