Skanska’s intranet has been appointed one of the 2012 top ten intranets in the world by Nielsen Norman Group, leading experts in the field web usability.

Usability expert Jakob Nielsen, principal of Nielsen Norman Group, comments their choice of OneSkanska: “Moving from 30 local intranets to one global site, the OneSkanska team created a single site that meets the needs of all business units and locations. Information is available to all, supporting a culture of transparency within the organization,” he says.

OneSkanska was launched from March to October 2010, replacing the previous 30 intranets with varying structures on different platforms. The users’ views of content are targeted based on business unit and location, but all information on the intranet is transparent and findable via the site search. The goal of OneSkanska was to create a global intranet to support group business strategies as well as local business.

“We wanted to help our employees to be informed, connected and more efficient. The intranet helps the employees work with a common brand and simplifies communication to and between employees. One of the biggest successes is in bringing all of the company together on OneSkanska.”, says Kimi Matsubara, Global Intranet Manager, Skanska AB.

Nielsen Norman Group presents a new top ten list each year, and this time Skanska was accompanied by Logica, MAN Diesel & Turbo and Staples Inc, among others.
