What SharePoint Hub Sites Offer Your Organization

April 3, 2019

As SharePoint enthusiasts, we’re excited to talk about SharePoint hub sites and what they are. So what do SharePoint hub sites actually offer and how do they fit into the current communication and collaboration structure of your organization?

SharePoint hub sites help you meet the needs of your organization by connecting and organizing sites based on project, department, division, region, etc., making it easier to:

  • Discover related content such as news and other site activities
  • Apply common navigation, branding and site structure across associated sites
  • Search across all associated sites

As your organization evolves, an intranet makes it easy to align experiences with the way you work, since they can adapt to the inevitable changes in the way you work. An intranet can play many roles in an organization. It’s an internally-facing site, a place to communicate important news, and a collaboration platform. It’s also a way to showcase your corporate culture. An intranet lets you tell stories and share information; it can be the foundation of your digital workplace. Empowering employees with a voice on your intranet can provide a way to move to a culture of collaboration that enables your organization to transform and adapt to change.

Many successful intranets include the following elements:

  1. Communication content
  2. Actions and activities
  3. Collaboration
  4. Culture
  5. Mobility
  6. Search

Team sites, communication sites and now hub sites – as well as classic publishing sites and sites for applications – are building blocks of your intranet. SharePoint connects the workplace so that you can share, manage, and find the content, knowledge, and apps you need, on any device. To read more on SharePoint hub sites, click here.
