Top 5 Unily features to share knowledge across your organization
Knowledge is power. Every organization, no matter how big or small, is the sum of their collective wisdom. How that knowledge is captured, shared, and stored is an invaluable ingredient for success. Empower your people with the right tools to quickly access the most precious asset your business has.
Putting the power of knowledge in the hands of your people
Employees detest endlessly searching for a resolution to their knowledge need. When poorly managed, this is a tedious and often repetitive task that costs too many priceless minutes of your people’s time. It also has a habit of raising many people’s blood pressure in the process.
Intentional, organized knowledge management with interconnected, trusted systems can improve productivity, inform efficient decision-making, and banish frustration for good.
At Unily, we know centralized, accessible expertise is the only antidote to knowledge management mayhem. Time to bring all that important material together. We’ve put together a winning line-up of five Unily features to champion knowledge across your workplace. If you’re looking to give your organizational wisdom the edge, this is a great place to start.
Maximizing enterprise knowledge
In episode 5 of the Unily podcast, Paul Seda, Kaitlin Auriemma, Kaz Hassan, and Alex Gabelli return to discuss the importance of your enterprise’s greatest asset: knowledge. Tapping into their own experience and expertise, the team offer nuggets of wisdom for maximizing the success and value of knowledge management.
#1. Intelligent, Unified Search
Arguably the backbone of any employee experience platform, employees expect an exceptional search experience as standard. It should deliver swift, precise, and reliable results. Without this pivotal component, productivity will slip as your people lose faith in depending on your search bar for answers.
Dissolving digital friction is another search superpower that can optimize knowledge management. If your employees must toggle between various sources of knowledge instead of a single, centralized location, they will become overwhelmed and frustrated with the unnecessary effort. As Gartner states, “More than two-thirds of employees experience significant digital friction at work.”
Achieving a “Google-like” enterprise search experience in your digital workplace
In this blog we explore the benefits of a “Google-like” search experience for your digital workplace by taking full advantage of Unily’s brand-new search center. Deliver rapid access to information for your people through our exceptionally engaging and highly accessible digital experience platform.
With Unily’s intelligent, unified search you can coalesce all knowledge bases under a powerful search engine, drawing on all your repositories in a single place, and surfacing exactly what your people need.
Contextual filters and refiners allow you to further narrow-down search results. Fuzzy matching and relevancy settings further maximize search effectiveness to shine a light on the right knowledge and expertise, making sure your people never miss a beat.
#2. People Directory
Knowledge is more transferrable than we tend to think, and lessons can often be applied between areas of practice that couldn’t seem further apart at first glance. Connecting your people with internal experts can disperse knowledge across your organization to where it’s needed most.
Empowering your people to understand ‘who’s who’ across the organization may even help your people forge unlikely but assiduous connections. Why shouldn’t the finance team learn a new approach to project management from the product engineering team? Wouldn’t it be a shame if the procurement team couldn’t spread a success story that might be useful for the marketing team to apply within their own remit?
How to crush your employee engagement goals with Unily
Everyone wants to know the secret sauce to an engaged workforce. Happier, more productive, more aligned employees is the ticket to business success, but how do you get there? Here’s how Unily is helping the world’s biggest brands achieve the ultimate goal, and how you can follow in their footsteps.
Wonderful opportunities to capitalize on existing knowledge could be uncovered if we decide to look outside our ‘lane’ for inspiration. An accessible people directory also helps networks within the business sync up, and work in harmony towards a common goal as an organization.
A well-informed and reliable people directory is also a key tenant of any good onboarding experience as new joiners seek to understand the existing skillsets, contact details, or experience within their team and across adjacent teams.
With Unily’s searchable people directory, you can facilitate these connections and new ways of thinking. Connect people to each other with filtered search results by department, location, experience, and skillset. This intuitive feature will allow your people to easily locate expertise in the business so they can find the right solutions, faster.
Answering the same questions time after time can drain productivity and overwhelm your people with manually intensive duplicative effort. By leveraging frequently asked questions functionality across your employee experience platform, you can provide searchable, navigable content – giving your people the agency to solve their own queries.
Well-presented FAQs can also provide your people with the confidence to know that the answers they’ve found are trustworthy. With Unily’s FAQ functionality, you can curate content logically across the employee experience platform. This highly visual approach will ensure your people can get an at-a-glance view of content by theme, topic, business function, or team – enabling faster, more informed decision-making.
Having a socially enabled employee experience platform can fuel a culture of knowledge sharing and community building around new ideas. With Unily’s social channels you can generate enterprise-wide discussions and stimulate new ways of thinking across teams.
Social features let your people share their wisdom in an informal, easily accessible way that truly gives everyone across the business a voice. Foster collaboration with user-generated content by encouraging your people to blog, share insights, and take a more active role in setting the agenda. Intuitive front-end content creation also democratizes knowledge sharing, sparking conversation at every level of the company.
With Unily’s social ideation capability, you can provide your people with a way to submit new ideas for the collective direction, products, or services.
Inbuilt social features such as upvoting, commenting, leaderboards, and kudos recognition also give a clear picture of what’s hot.
