Transforming employee experience with a global intranet solution
We are proud to detail our work with Baringa, a global consulting firm, to develop their new global intranet, Light House. Recognising our expertise in SharePoint and intranets, Baringa’s IT team tasked us with creating an intranet to enhance employee engagement and support client project delivery across Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific. Our initial step involved an extensive discovery exercise, including user and stakeholder interviews and workshops across all regions. Based on this, we recommended a SharePoint-based global intranet, integrating Lightspeed365 Features for added functionality and custom work to meet Baringa’s specific search needs.
The Light House intranet includes several Lightspeed365 features, such as a welcoming homepage with personalised greetings and local weather updates, and a news feed mixing global and regional updates. Key functionalities like the app launcher, people search, and “How Do I” pages drive efficiency and task completion. We integrated Condeco for desk booking directly from the homepage, using the Lightspeed Viva Connections connector. A customised search experience with persistent filters unique to Baringa enhances findability of resources and experts. Additionally, we modified the Lightspeed365 People directory to access consultant CVs through the employee directory and embedded search box. To help employees adapt to the new intranet, we used the Lightspeed365 Page tour feature for walkthroughs and created a comprehensive help centre. For content owners across Baringa, we provided resources and guides to create engaging content. The launch of Light House marks a significant step in bringing Baringa’s regions together and supporting employees in their daily tasks.
