Dorel Juvenile Europe, a maker of child safety equipment such as car seats, won My Beautiful Intranet 2014 for the following reasons:

  • Integrated social features (the intranet is the collaboration platform?)
  • Clean design and simple navigation
  • Balance of features and homepage content
  • An innovative, persistent right-hand column with key site features.

While not quite the visually stunning type of site one might expect, Dorel Juvenile’s intranet delivered balance on many dimensions. This balance resulted in an innovative, user-friendly, social intranet that looks lovely.

Hear from our special guest presenter:

  • Marlou Kessels, Communications Consultant at Dorel Juvenile Europe.
