NLMK Group, a global steel company, has won a Silver award at the international Step Two Intranet and Digital Workplace Awards 2019 for the launch of its Intranet portal which extends to all employees, promotes automation of business processes and enhances personnel engagement.
The jury honoured the main achievement of the NLMK project: the company managed to reduce the digital divide between office and production staff. Only those employees who had a computer could access the Intranet before the launch of the new Bitrix24-powered corporate portal in 2018, which removed this barrier.
Thanks to the adaptive design all portal services are accessible 24/7 and not only via computers, but also via personal mobile devices. New users are authorized by SMS.
Now all employees of NLMK Group's Russian companies can use online HR services, learn news, and exchange ideas, knowledge and professional experience in their corporate social network. Today 90% of NLMK Group's employees use the Intranet regularly.
The jury of the Step Two Intranet and Digital Workplace Awards belives that NLMK's experience of extending its social intranet to frontline staff may be of good use to many other global industries.
