Tipps & Tricks
Alexander Knechtl

In this blogpost, you will learn how you can easily set up intranets inside LearningSuite for your employees, so that you can share important information, links, etc.

What is an intranet and what purposes does it serve for me?

By utilising an intranet, you can easily provide your employees with all the content they need in everyday operations. Especially in the initial phase of a new employee, onboarding is extremely simplified by an intranet, which is an essential part of the onboarding process.

In this blog post, I'll show you how you can use the LearningSuite Hub feature to set up an intranet dashboard, which is an important component of a modern e-learning platform, easily and in no time. I'll also give you an exclusive insight into our intranets in the form of screenshots so that you can understand in detail what you can build with the LearningSuite Hub feature.

You can overcome these challenges with an intranet:

  • Information management: Intranets can serve as a central source for corporate policies, news, and other important information. They can also be used to provide forms, manuals, and other resources that employees need to do their jobs.
  • Application access: Intranets can be used to give employees access to company-specific applications and services.
  • Onboarding and training: An intranet can be used to orient new employees and provide continuous education and training for all personnel, which is a key element of digital onboarding.

What is important to consider when using an intranet?

A clearly structured navigation design is essential for a powerful intranet. This raises the question of whether an orientation towards the organizational structure or rather a topic-based approach makes more sense.

A design that is based on tasks and topics enables greater personalisation of content and menu navigation for each employee and is therefore considered more user-friendly. When designing the navigation and information architecture of an intranet, there are several key factors to consider:

  1. User-oriented approach: Navigation should always take into account the needs and expectations of users and be so intuitive that no explanation is necessary.
  2. Clear, understandable structure: A simple and intuitive structure promotes the use of the intranet and makes it easier for users to access the information they need.
  3. Consistency: Uniform navigation on all pages of the intranet helps users find their way around more easily and understand navigation intuitively.
  4. Powerful search function: An efficient search function is an essential navigation tool. It should be able to deliver relevant results quickly and reliably.
  5. Feedback: An effective feedback system makes it possible to continuously optimize navigation and information architecture and adapt them to the needs of users.

Your intranets could look like this in LearningSuite:

A general intranet - for all employees

In this example, you see how you can use LearningSuite to set up a general intranet for your staff. From there, employees have all the necessary essentials, such as recording working hours, filing sick notes, etc. You also have the ideal visibility to communicate courses and news!

Specific intranets for dedicated job roles

With the LearningSuite Hub feature, you can also provide individual employees or groups of employees, such as all account managers - as shown in the photo - with their own dashboard. With this, they have access to all the programs they need. In addition, you can also directly pull up the necessary scripts from there and add all contacts, including contact details.

With LearningSuite, you can tackle all these challenges in the blink of an eye:

By implementing LearningSuite, you can not only provide your employees with intranets, but also provide individual learning content for each individual job position.

This drastically reduces onboarding time and the error rate among new employees. In addition, the constant demand for new employees, which disrupts the focus of managers, is reduced to a minimum, as employees now have the opportunity to view the digital training content at any time.

Investing time in systematic onboarding is a valuable endeavour. In the long run, it conserves resources that would have otherwise been spent on hands-on employee training.
