You have the chance to design what you believe is a useful hompage with the added incentive of winning a Kindle. Surely this is one of the easier decisions for intranet professionals to make!
When I look back at the BT Intranet homepage versions over the years I was there and the many other homepages I have seen that other organisations use, I wish I could have done this when I started to think about improvements.
While it is functionality that brings people back to a homepage again and again a design that is pleasing to the eye and helps bring to bring branding, content and layout together is the best combination for a useful homepage.
So, don’t delay, design it today!
