Suncor: intranet going social in a “traditional” industry

Suncor intranet, live tour on Digital Workplace Live March 4th 2014Suncor is an energy company that, among other things, mines oil sands. This sounds like very labour-intensive work in a very industrial industry. But Suncor is anything but normal.

For 2014 Suncor has been voted one of Canada’s top 100 places to work, due in large part to its comprehensive employee development and benefits programmes (onsite daycare anyone?).

Suncor’s corporate vision and mission take root in the triple bottom line concept, aiming for “economic prosperity, improved social well-being and a healthy environment for today and tomorrow”.

So it’s no surprise that the design of Suncor’s intranet, called “The Core”, puts employees first by providing a simple experience and thoughtful use of social features.

On the March 4th show hear from Suncor’s intranet from:

  • David Coman, Team Lead eCommunications Intranet, Suncor
  • Maria Cuartas, Intranet Advisor, Suncor.

During the live intranet tour see how the clean and simple appearance of Suncor’s intranet hides a sophisticated and thoughtful intranet strategy.
