News Ideas for SharePoint

Keeping your content fresh is the best way to drive users to your intranet. SharePoint gives us an easy way to quickly put that content for consumption with news. News can be shown throughout your intranet and filtered by department, globally, or by specific metadata.

But what’s newsworthy? Generally, when we think of company news, images of new hires and health insurance forms starting swirling in your head, but we can do so much more!

These are the some of the basics. Some on the list are familiar but others might be new to you.  
  • New employee Policy change

  • Company achievements

  • Employee birthdays

  • Job postings

  • Surveys and polls

  • Message from CEO

  • Employee anniversaries  

  • In the press (company made the news)

  • Company townhall

  • Company party

  • Inspirational quotes

  • FAQ

While the standard news ideas are great – they will hole up in any organization, they don’t account for many departments. We created a list of great news ideas for standard departments to not only help you get going but to get some reoccurring content. These ideas will help keep your content fresh, pages active, and employees informed of what’s going on!
