Connected company in times of crisis

During the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, communication between collaborators within the same organization, has never been more vital and essential to itsdurability. Indeed, connecting people, data and content is often hampered by many factors. These constraints make it impossible to make quick decisions and destroy the efficiency of the company.

Quarantine imposes itself on us today and remote work is becoming the only way to ensure the continuity of company’s activities, emphasizing this way the importance of communication andaccess to information remotely. Working from home has already been tried and tested in normal conditions, and it had a similar or even better results than traditional on-site work, in terms of productivity and creativity.

Nevertheless, although there are still several digital tools that allow synergy between collaborators, they remain limited since they respond only to specific needs while taking away the convivial side that is largely expressed in one-on-one contact. Beyond his isolation, the employee is uprooted from his usual ecosystem and environment to the point of losing his social positioning.

It is with the corporate companies’ portals that this communication – company / employeereconnexion – takes its meaning!!

Indeed, these collaborative intranets with self-service management allow to associate roles for editors and information consumers within the same platform, while integrating a wide range of “smarts” gadgets facilitating horizontal and vertical exchangesbetween collaborators: agendas, publications, workflows, chats, newsletters, social network, ….

What if we added mobility?

The portal would pass to another dimension, a virtualized company that we take with us. Employees could be connected to their company’s departments (top management, human resources, etc.), as well as their managers and colleagues. This would increase the reactivity of each other, consolidate the sharing of information and knowledge, and finally strengthen cohesion and and belonging; the company will be a community where the employee is a whole and not a part!
