About the guide

Internal communicators are pivoting their focus to support culture and belonging. Your intranet is where that begins.

With inclusive SharePoint design backed by people-led UX data, your intranet becomes a hub where every employee feels like they belong.

Perhaps an employee has a hearing impairment. Or maybe they’re just working from a noisy cafe. Both will benefit from subtitles on your intranet’s audio content.

Taking an inclusive approach to design means your intranet will go further than just ticking a box for accessibility. You’ll create an online space that enables every employee to be engaged, productive and collaborative – regardless of their circumstances.

Our guide to inclusive design includes:

  • What inclusive design is and why you need it
  • Usability vs accessibility
  • Choosing the right technology
