Microsoft SharePoint Simplifies Document Management

By implementing a SharePoint intranet, they were able to improve document sharing, drive employee engagement, and, subsequently, increase employee productivity and efficiency. Employees could now easily find and access company information which provided much-needed clarity regarding their roles. User collaboration on documents and projects was significantly improved, which resulted in higher project success rates.

Company executives could now distribute vital business information accordingly and be confident it would reach all employees. Clear communication within the company led to efficient communication with clients, thereby increasing overall customer satisfaction.

Empowering Employees with a Custom Recognition System

Included within the new intranet was a highly-functioning internal employee recognition system. Each month, employees could give a limited number of shoutouts to fellow peers that were company-value focused. After submitting a shoutout, Power Automate escalated the recognition to the appropriate manager for review. This provided managers with valuable information regarding employee performance which they could use to appropriately reward employees based on the number of recognition's they received.

With a new employee recognition system in place, employee satisfaction rates significantly increased. Employee motivation to follow and exhibit company values also increased which ultimately improved overall morale.
