Markus Mather from Tieto, the largest Nordic IT firm in the world, presented the company’s intranet and I watched with both admiration and jealousy.

Tieto’s intranet may be the best operationalized social intranet I’ve ever seen. At first glance their homepage feed looks basic and a little dry. But the content is highly personalized, is social, and the interface is clean.

A deeper look shows richer content focused no very specific purposes. Here we have Tieto’s Knowledge Sharing section, which includes links to fresh content as well as commonly used networks related to finding and sharing knowledge.

But the rubber really hits the road when you see how Tieto have made it easy to access daily tools in employees “My Work” sections. Here the list of top applications is denoted with helpful icons, and sits next to a personalized list of team collaboration sites.

On the “My Work” section of Tieto’s intranet employees can fill out their time sheets. They don’t have to click through to another application – the time sheet software is integrated into the intranet and is one click away from the homepage.

And isn’t this the simplest, easiest intranet meeting help section you’ve ever seen? This entire section is clean, the visuals are engaging and helpful, and it’s designed around clear meeting-related tasks. Looking at it I actually WANT to read instructions on setting up a meeting.

It’s important to note that not every company can compare its intranet to Tieto’s. Tieto is an IT firm. They have tons of in-house resources for building a good intranet. But this is still a good bar for any company to aim for.
