Given the economic challenges and pressures on public spending, it is now apparent that the government will need to increase efficiency measures significantly as well as make increasing cuts. A well-designed and utilised intranet can help the public and third sector to cut costs and streamline everyday processes. It can also strengthen internal communications, provide an environment for collaboration and facilitate knowledge sharing. But to achieve this, your intranet needs to be an evolving resource that’s easy to use, current, and matches your organisation’s needs. Therefore, it is essential that you establish best practice when developing your intranet to ensure it remains sustainable, user-friendly and relevant in the long-term.

Ark Group’s fifth annual Public & Third Sector Intranets event will equip you with the skills to improve the functionality of your intranet and advance staff communication via your intranet, both of which will vastly improve the efficiency of your everyday processes, ultimately driving down costs.

Featuring real-life case studies, in-depth presentations and four “LIVE” intensive intranet demonstrations from Manchester City Council, The NHS Confederation, Save the Children UK and East London NHS Foundation Trust, this two-day, highly interactive event will enable you to share best practice, benchmark your progress and direct your questions to those directly involved in intranet development, implementation and use. Further highlights include:

Transport for London: Aligning your intranet with the needs of the organisation
Southwark Council: Integrating social media into your intranet
FutureGov: How might public sector organisations use the intranet differently in the future?
The City of Edinburgh Council: Intranet governance - managing devolved content ownership and intranet champions
