All told, it was a 30-month project that began with a request: Improve the intranet. So National Geographic did just that for its employees — and got some international recognition in the process.
Nielsen Norman Group named the 126-year scientific and educational institution as the creator of one of the world’s 10 best intranets in its 14th Annual Intranet Design Contest earlier this month.
This year’s winning teams and their intranets are showcased in Nielsen Norman Group’s new 319-page report “Intranet Design Annual 2014: The Year’s 10 Best Intranets” (it costs $248 to download).
This week, CMSWire talked to Keelin Vaccaro, internal communications director at the National Geographic Society. Vaccaro led National Geographic’s complete redesign of its intranet, transforming the site from a static communications vehicle to an interactive, social site.
