Better together: Your intranet and Microsoft Teams

Expand your intranet's reach with a Microsoft Teams app.

A well-designed intranet can be a key part of the employee experience, but these days it’s less common for employees to start and end their workday on their intranet. With COVID-19, most organizations have experienced a dramatic shift to remote work and tremendous growth of Microsoft Teams as a result. Microsoft Teams is now where work gets done.

We believe it is important to meet employees where they work, so our GO SharePoint Intranet now includes a Microsoft Teams app to give employees access to their intranet directly in Microsoft Teams.

Over the last two months Habanero has conducted research with over 5,000 people across 40 countries to understand the impact of COVID-19 on the employee experience. “The research illustrates how strong purpose and values support connection, belonging and a sense of security at a time when so many things have been turned on their heads,” says Christina Ferancik, GO Intranet product manager at Habanero. “Intranets are a powerful tool to accomplish this, and now you can extend the reach of this culture-building channel in Microsoft Teams.”

Front and centre on any device

The GO Intranet Microsoft Teams app can be deployed organization-wide to always appear on the Microsoft Teams app navigation bar. This gives employees quick access to your entire intranet without going to their browser.

The app also provides an integrated mobile experience with direct access from the Microsoft Teams app across different devices. The Greater Toronto Airport Authority built their intranet on GO, and was able roll out the Teams intranet app organization-wide.

“Employees are increasingly using Microsoft Teams on their mobile devices. With our new GO Intranet Microsoft Teams app your intranet is only one tap away. Employees no longer need to open their browser or another app on their phone to access the intranet.” says Erik Olaveson, GTAA’s manager, digital experience. "With Teams centralizing our employees' digital workplace, we want to bring their experiences and resources to them."

The GO Microsoft Teams app is available to all GO subscription customers at no additional charge as part of their regular upgrade schedule.

"We really appreciate how Habanero continues to provide additional value to us from our GO subscription. They help to ensure we get the most from our Microsoft 365 investment." adds Olaveson.
