Workshop A:  Understanding Employee Personas: Learn How To Customize The Content Seen On Your SharePoint Homepage To Drive User-Adoption And Employee Engagement
Nonlinear Enterprise

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

One of the top reasons employees do not visit or engage with their Intranet is a seeming lack of relevance in the content they see, particularly on the home page.   For example, if I am based in New York, do I care about news from the Los Angeles office?  Over time, having to hunt for items of interest amidst a sea of content erodes the user experience and the user’s appetite to go back for more. 


Using SharePoint and a good data source, you can customize content a user sees on the homepage based on role, location or other information you have about them.  The trick is to know what to customize, and how.  Do you know your employees well enough to know how to design for them to bring them the most value?



Join your peers in this workshop as you learn how to understand employee personas and use them to drive user-adoption and engagement, including how to:


  • Identify what employee personas look like and how they will affect your digital workplace
  • How to create employee personas strategically –  knowing who to choose and why   
  • Key pieces to consider when planning your SharePoint communications for personalization


This interactive session will feature group activities, peer discussions, best practices and provide you with take-away tools to bring to your office.
