Launching a Social Intranet
On January 16, 2014, we had the privilege of hosting the Federal Communicators Network for a special presentation: “Driving Employee Engagement Through A Social Intranet.”
This event was an opportunity to welcome our communications colleagues from across the Federal government, and gave us the chance to share best practices and solution-driven approaches for our work. We were joined by over 70 attendees (both in person and via webinar) from various government agencies, including the State Department, the Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Geological Survey, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Kelly Osborn, Web Developer and Community Manager for our Internal Collaboration Network, took us step-by-step through the process of establishing the social intranet at the National Archives, managing the various technical and cultural challenges, and measuring success.
We look forward to hosting more events like this in the future, getting to know and learn from our colleagues across the government, and opening the doors for greater collaboration and knowledge sharing.
I would like to thank the Federal Communicators Network for co-hosting this event with us, and Digital Gov University for hosting the webinar. Many thanks also to my staff and to Donna Garland, Director of Communications at the National Archives for her support of this program.
If you missed the event, slides of Kelly’s presentation are now available from the Federal Communicators Network.
We are grateful to have hosted such an engaged and supportive audience for this event. We look forward to welcoming you at the National Archives as we continue to share and learn from our efforts and initiatives.
