‘Something needs to happen - both technically and culturally‘. With those words, Min A-kasse will soon be launching their first version of the Colibo intranet. The employees will log in for the first time on the 19th of September.
The simple user-interface of the intranet makes it easy for the employees to use the system from the very first day. That is one of the things that Min A-kasse is looking forward to
We chose Colibo because the intranet seems user-friendly and accessible. We have a lot of internal communication and collaboration across the organization. This means that the intranet already works as the platform for establishing and maintaining a common culture - Maria Hamilton, Communications consulent, Min A-kasse
A lot of different cultures challenge the feeling of belonging to one big unit
Min A-kasse has been through multiple fusions, and has grown from 65 to 100 employees since 2015. The challenge is thus to make the employees feel like a part of one joint organization - a challenge that is complex because of the many different cultures that need to be fused.
“It's apparent that we need a common forum for both the important news around the organization, but also knowledge sharing and digital tool boxes", says Maria Hamilton, Communications consultant at Min A-kasse. This means that the employees log in to their own personal newsfeed every morning. Documents and tools that are relevant for each employee are easy to access and all users can create digital collaborative rooms for different projects.
Colibo - the right choice
With the help from a consultant, Min A-kasse searched the entire market to find the right intranet. The 102 year old unemployment insurance fund has examined different Sharepoint-solutions before landing on Colibo's Umbraco-based intranet.
Min A-kasse is, together with Esbjerg Municipality, the only Colibo-customer to launch an intranet where the entire organizational structure is transferred from their AD (Active Directory). This means that all departments and teams will automatically be visible in the new intranet, and updated when needed. This saves the administration a lot of ressources and lowers the error rate, because every single update is done automatically.
At Min A-kasse they are now counting down the days till the 19th of September.
