We’re looking forward to a vibrating event with inspiring speakers and would love meet you!
‘Employee engagement won’t work around here.’ ‘We’re all too busy for that soft stuff.’ ‘I pay people, that should be enough.’ Surprising as it may sound, these types of attitudes are still common. But engagement should not be something you do “on the side,” it should be embedded in all your business activities. We spoke to Cathy Brown, Executive Director at industry-led Engage for Success, about the barriers and the engine of employee engagement.
We’re very proud to announce that imgZine has been selected by the organizers of the fourth Global Conference on Cyberspace (GCCS2015) to develop an application for this year’s event.

The application’s features include augmented reality with 3D location maps and the business matchmaker, a feature that connects attendees with similar interests.

This year, we’ve got a lot of really exciting events in the pipeline. From March 24 to March 25, we’re attending the Internal Communications Conference in London.

Last week, we attended the Congres Intranet 2015, a yearly Dutch intranet conference that covers innovative intranet solutions and workplace collaboration. One of the event’s lectures focused on the usability of intranet systems. Ike Breed, usability researcher at MetrixLab, presented the lecture. One of the points that stuck with us from her lecture was that “employees often use their intranet with the underlying idea that they will have to go with it rather than that it helps them in their daily work life.” Is that the case? Is there really no alternative to the intranet?
