New Intranet Launch

An intranet demo from the Teams interface, how nice is that! Yes, it is a SharePoint intranet.
This Dutch Sea Research organization has chosen not to replicate the organizational structure in their new intranet, but to make it more intuitive. They use an extensive menu to navigate to various parts and groups and themes of the intranet. Language is English and the colour is blue, of course!
I see "Quick Links", "My Links"(nice use of the "My saved items" web part), events and news, of course.

Intranet KFW Gebärdenvideo.mp4

Excellent, an intranet demo in sign language. I would have preferred subtitles, as that would perhaps have a larger audience, but I am glad that the organization has realized that not everyone may benefit from a talking video.
This is for a German bank, and it looks nice and clean, with a mega menu on top with a ton of options, and that is only the 4 words in the horizontal navigation! But I expect this will be necessary for a bank.

This brand-new intranet for an outdoor advertising agency in Mexico uses large visuals on their homepage. The images in the rotating carousel are a tad cluttered, but the rest is quite calm, in nice shades of blue and white and with a nice header font. The intranet has all info you would need in a commercial organization, such as news, events, suggestions, birthdays and more. No sound, so I just have to go by the look of it.

Introducing LBS Digital Workplace

This is not so much of an intranet launch video, but an Office365 training for students of this UK education institute. It focuses nicely on the use for students.
The icons are a bit outdated but the content is still relevant, except for the use of Skype for calling and conferencing. 😊

Rumos - projecto intranet Bluepharma (Portuguese with English subtitles)

This is both a people video and a demo/teaser; the SharePoint intranet for this Portuguese pharmaceuticals company.
It is SharePoint, but with some customization, especially in the organization chart - I don't think you can do that with native SharePoint! (I do not like customizations, but this one is useful and it looks nice and easy).

Uploaded October 2021


Nice teaser for this new intranet for 6 people speak about the new intranet for this pharmaceuticals company, how they have listed to colleagues about their needs, how they have used survey results to create this version, and what you can expect.

Merz Therapeutics Global ONE Explanatory Video

This is a demo for an intranet of the pharmaceuticals manufacturer. It is now a new global intranet, hence it is called Global ONE. The old intranets appear to be still there.
It is SharePoint based although I think they have done something custom, it is mostly News and links to information and applications.
An interesting change (from their earlier version) is that they have removed the department layer from their Resources and Services, so you can immediately go to the resource without having to know who owns it. I like that; I have always thought that hierarchy does not help collaboration :-)

This appears to be recorded with a camera, as you see the edges of the computer and it moves slightly, as if with the breath of the person who is recording. It works, but it could have been done better as a recorded Teams meeting.

Emerus Intranet

Solid demo with some funny movie clips in between. With 3.30 min quite long but worthwhile.
You are prompted to complete your profile first, which is a good thing because an intranet is also meant to find colleagues and connect. It has all the usual corporate and health care information.
The organization is a chain of community hospitals in the USA.

Uploaded August 2022 but video is from 2018.

LCS Intranet

Classic Talking head video, where someone informs the staff and pupils of this school that there is a new intranet, why it is important and how people can benefit.

Nice person, video is short enough to keep the attention, and bonus points for the neutral background.

YAMMER Film 1 - Starting Out

Yammer group and community management, compared to a good party in this set of 3 videos, played by cartoon characters. It is a good comparison, although it may not resonate with everyone. Not sure if this is for a specific organization.

I want that bat-device!
Good lessons captured at the end of every episode.

Episode 2: (Managing and maintaining)

Episode 3: (Promoting and explanding)

Intranet - Coming Soon

Short teaser for a new intranet for an Australian town.

Inside FHWN - English Version

Surprisingly modern teaser/demo for this intranet for a university for applied sciences and arts in Switzerland. It is a story about two teachers in different locations of the uni working together on a project. They use their intranet to find and connect with other people and information.
Nice animations showing common business processes.

The Estée Lauder Companies: Designing the world's best intranet

This is more an explanation of the goals and processes behind this intranet, than a teaser, demo or people video, but as this intranet is in the "10 best intranets of 2022" (Nielsen-Norman group) and shortlisted for the Digital Workplace Awards of the Year 2022 (Digital Workplace Group), I thought I'd share it.

Intranet Pole - Teaser (in Portuguese)

Short bright teaser for the new intranet for this Brazilian food manufacturer (or supermarket).
It has been especially created for you and will contain events, news, a shop, programmes and projects, vacancies etc.

Uploaded May 2022

This must be the first intranet video shot from within a hospital operating room! 😁 (or so it looks)

Shot vertically, with dramatic music, someone in medical protective clothing demonstrates how to access the intranet and find the protocols and procedures for this Parisian hospital. This has been uploaded in 2021, but I guess this video is older, as you can access it by opening Internet Explorer (!!!) and the intranet design looks a little outdated.

Employee Intranet: "On the Radar"

This is the teaser for the demo shown as the next item, under this one.

This organization (an energy provider in the USA) has listened to their employees and created a new intranet, called Connect. (yay!)
Personalized experience, robust search and mobile access are the main new features.

Uploaded November 2021.

Employee Intranet: "Functionalities"

This video starts as a teaser ("we have listened to you with regards to the intranet") and then turns into a demo of this intranet for a energy provider in the USA.
It's called Connect which is fun - it must be one of the most used intranet names! 😁
You can personalize your news and events, share news stories via social media, keep for later. All tools and apps are integrated, there's tons of HR documents, and there's social stuff as well.
The top bar looks like Office365, they mention OneDrive, but the intranet does not look like SharePoint.

Uploaded November 2021.

Sansiri Digital Workplace

When I search for the term "Digital Workplace" an intro of the Office365 suite often comes up in the results. This video indeed introduces the Office 365 suite to the organization, a construction company (houses, hotels) in Thailand.
Nice animation style, and so clear that you can guess what they mean even if you do not understand Thai.

Uploaded November 2019.

video nueva intranet (in Spanish)

Demo of the policies and procedure documentation of this Spanish logistics services provider. You see a short glimpse of the landing page, but quickly we go into the detailed information.
It is SharePoint, you can see that from the link, but it does not really look like it, and as soon as we go to the procedures, there is some waiting and then something totally not like SharePoint shows up. It looks like a nicr extra layer of navigation through the P&P.

Uploaded May 2021.

Intranet Promo.mp4

Nice teaser/demo for the SharePoint intranet of a house rental organization in the UK. It is called "Our Place" which is a good name for any intranet, but especially for a housing organization!

It includes a bit of Office 365 tools and they will have a DocHub for all formal documentation.

"We have built more than just an intranet, we have built an ecosystem".

Exploring the Intranet

This tutorial is quite long, but it is SharePoint so you may want to take a good look.
First screens can be seen at around 1:45.
Quite extensive walkthrough featuring News, Quick Links, Incorporated systems, Search, Footer, the menu, etc.
Check out their list of Quick Links - it is an alternative navigation! (14:33) Fortunately you can filter to reduce the noise.
This is a health care organization, so lots of focus on health and nursing. The design is very clean and has a similar colour scheme as their website.

Me@SXU Introduction

Learn more about Me@SXU as well as how to set up an account to track your academic career.

I am not a fan of this animation style but the video in itself is fine. How to create an account (not sure if logging in as Bruce Wayne is a good plan though) for this portal, how to upload your resume and other relevant papers, and apparently you can collaborate with others on your work. It is not exactly an intranet, (I do not see anything about News and organizational info) but you can do all that and increase and maintain your network, so I am sure it is a very effective tool.

UE Social Intranet with MS Yammer

Yammer introduction for the University of Europe. It first shows integration with Teams, but suggests that people go to Yammer to create an account. As this video is uploaded very recently, I would expect that this organization has Office365 and a separate Yammer log on should not be needed!

Uploaded August 2022

We Change the Company | COSMOTE

For a teaser, this would be quite long, but this looks more like an overview of intranet/digital workplace capabilities in this Greek mobile network operator. (But it is also no demo)
You will see some glimpses from a rather outdated intranet screen, to be followed up with a multi-device, single sign-on modern design. It has workflows, e-learning, business dashboards and much more.

Châteaurenard - Tutoriel Intranet de la commune (in French)

Interesting combination of talking head (the HR director, who is also the instructor) and a demo for this intranet for a French town called Châteaurenard (Fox Castle). The intranet is called Le P'tit Renard (The small fox) which is quite nice actually.
The intranet looks very much like the website and it does not look like SharePoint. It is meant for communication and collaboration and is available for all devices, including at home. We are shown how to log on, main navigation, HR-forms, searching for documents and going back to the home page.
