The ways in which the portal is of use can be seen in the following ways:

Polls and surveys help HR collect employee opinions and inputs by analyzing the content, analysis of staff members’ status updates and intranet comments.
The portal also helps in team building among the employees by marking the birthdays and anniversaries, organize special events and help employees know each other better. Posting photos and videos of JIC events also helps build the community and camaraderie.
The Recruitment process has become easier with the intranet portal. Internal recruitment is served by announcing vacancies and accepting applications via the intranet. The HR department uses the intranet to find internal talent to fill vacancies.
