New to the Customer Success team, meet Jocelyn De Los Santos! Jocelyn shares her one-big-thing not to miss from the Igloo Community this month and what's helping her get up to speed on all things Igloo.
Each year, we recognize our customer's efforts to create a more connected, productive, and engaged workplace—leveraging Igloo Software to make it all happen.

In the Igloo Community
Everyone has a different vision for their perfect intranet. Maybe you're looking for a way to encourage a more vibrant and consistent corporate culture for a hybrid workforce, or maybe you want to keep your frontline workers aligned with the same priorities as the teams in the office. Whatever the goal, success always hinges on the same thing: your intranet implementation. Rebecca O'Reilly, Senior Director of Solution Delivery, writes on the most common stumbling blocks made during digital workplace implementations and how you can avoid them.
