The SharePoint Intranet Communication is regarded as an integral part of the organizational work-culture and inter-mingling enhancement system. Thus, setting it up has become quite compelling to most organizations. But do you think just setting it up is enough?
Of course not! The purpose of the intranet will be fruitful only when it is widely used by all the employees willingly and in fact, they wish to come back to it again and again not just because they are compelled to due to work purpose, but because they find it engaging and intriguing.

Open Door Feature or Anonymous Suggestion forums
There should be such tools which allows every employee to give suggestions either for the overall company’s interest or to a co-employee irrespective of anyone‘s post.
