Let’s see what happened during the third week. On Monday we had our internal communications team meeting, which will be a recurring event from now on. We discussed several topics. Managing the rest of the budget is one of the most important tasks now as the financial year ends in March. (Due to certain and obvious reasons I cannot share any details regarding that one.)
During the week I gained all of the necessary rights to manage the local intranet. Now I have access to almost everything, which I need to do my job. If I feel that I need something else that’s not an issue either because we have a very helpful intranet service team (they are located abroad).
Our intranet is huge – if we consider the global one, although, it is not proper to use such a distinction like global or local. Every day if I scan through it I always find something, which may not be known by my colleagues – i.e. those, who are not working in communications – but could be very useful to them. For example, I discovered MySite. I suggested that we could use it to introduce new employees to each other. So every new employee can complete their profile then we could place their name and a link to their MySite on the intranet. That way we could promote that tool to other employees, too. (If you are curious why this tool has not been used until now than check my following post.)
