New Intranet for Modern Communication at GRK

HiQ concepted and implemented a new intranet for GRK. The new intranet modernizes internal communication processes completely. GRK is a construction industry concern with 800 employees. GRK operates in Finland, Sweden and Estonia. Previously, employees didn´t have any common channel for internal communication and information was shared mostly via email. Network drives were used for maintaining documents.

“We wanted to build intranet where users can find the needed information easily. We succeeded very well”, says IT Manager Jussi Erola from GRK.

The new intranet was implemented using modern SharePoint communication sites on Microsoft 365 platform. Jussi Eerola is happy that the new intranet has a modern look and feel and it´s easy to use – with any device.

"Many GRK users want to use mobile devices to find information. Now it´s possible."

Flexible development

The concept and content structure for the intranet were planned together with HiQ. After that, HiQ built the site structure ready with default functionalities.

"Once the site was built, we started to create content. While creating the content, we got ideas on what kind of features were still needed. HiQ implemented small customizations at the same time that we created content."

The project with HiQ succeeded well – on time and as planned, but still flexibly.

HiQ and GRK continue to work together also after the project phase: both internal communication and teamwork will be developed continuously.

Most popular features: front page and people search

At GRK, especially the intranet front page has been used a lot: it gathers internal news and events, media hits and social media content together. Also, people search can be accessed through the front page. From people search, users can find contact information of all the colleagues and filter information with company or title. People search is implemented with PnP search web part.
