Informa is an international business intelligence, publishing and events company, and a constituent of the FTSE 100. With 7,500 colleagues working in one of five business divisions - Academic Publishing, Business Intelligence, Global Exhibitions, Knowledge & Networking and Global Support – in locations from Sydney to São Paulo, the goal was to create a new digital workspace that would increase collaboration and the use of technology, improve the two-way-flow of communication and bring people together.
Informa chose Unily as a compelling intranet platform that also capitalized on its existing Office 365 investments. By combining Unily’s standard functionality with intelligent customizations and integrations, Informa has created an intranet that is driving the Group towards greater digital workplace adoption, fostering new communities and transforming how knowledge flows through the organization.
Informa put social interaction and engagement at the heart of its intranet project, aiming to enhance the delivery of corporate communications and create new opportunities for two way engagement and colleague-driven content. Content is intelligently targeted, with different communications teams and super-users able to come together on a single platform to publish official information. Social feeds, conversation posts, groups and blogs are utilized across the site to encourage engagement at all levels in the business. Informa has also gone above and beyond Unily’s standard functionality to improve connectivity and deliver one of the Group’s people and culture objectives: integrating a global vacancy tool enabling people to find opportunities to progress their career within the company more easily than ever.
