Intranet Templates – Effective Designs to Enhance Your Intranet

Axero Intranet Templates and Screenshots

Your intranet design is one of the most critical components to your launch. It determines how your pages will look, where everything will go, and what the user experience will be like. If information is hard to find and tools are difficult to use, engagement and overall adoption will not be as strong as it could be.

That’s why you need sleek, modern pages that will display important content and resources where your teams will use it. To help you get inspired, we compiled these tried-and-tested intranet templates. Download a template and quickly customize it for your site. We’ll also walk you through the latest intranet features that spotlight different content, people, and company initiatives in the screenshots below.

Download any of the intranet templates (see screenshots) and upload them into your Axero intranet as a Page Builder page.

1. The essential homepage intranet template.

The homepage is the first thing employees see, which makes it the most important page. A clean, simple design will showcase the content and tools you want your employees to access in a refreshing and easy-to-use way. We recommend using a template like the intranet screenshot above. With this layout, your featured news takes centerstage in a large central column. You can use your Page Builder to drag-and-drop smaller linear columns below to highlight new hires, HR announcements, and upcoming events. With permissions, you can also feature targeted content based on everyone’s roles in your intranet.

A section for your Quick Links guides your people to commonly accessed places, like the employee handbook, the announcements page, and your employee directory. Drop another widget to list main spaces and centralize all third-party apps in your launchpad. You want quick navigation so people can get to the places they need, easily.

Communication is key, which is why Axero’s News and Announcements intranet template takes a clean, balanced approach to displaying your communications. In our intranet screenshot above, the most recent content leads the page. Bright, bold headers in each column call attention to who’s posting it and a short blurb highlights what the content is about. Add a colorful thumbnail photo to capture the attention of your employees and engage them with your announcement. Axero’s Articles drives effective communication in the workplace, with rich text, content lists, and People widgets that support a news center that your employees will check daily.

  1. One page for news – Never worry about an email getting buried. All of your company communications are centralized in one place. Content displays in the most recent order and notifications immediately alert your employees about new announcements.
  2. Bright, bold, and simple – Less is more. This intranet template ensures employees are focused on the most important information with large columns that summarize what each piece of content is about.
  3. Customize, customize, customize! – This intranet screenshot is just the tipping point. Drag-and-drop widgets on the sidebar to display company calendars, Quick Links to the employee handbook or to other spaces—it’s your intranet, your way.

Too many events, so little time to manage it all. Axero’s Events intranet template keeps your teams in the loop with company events by bringing together meetings, conferences, training sessions, and get-togethers all in one place. Celebrate your employees by shining a spotlight on upcoming birthdays, new hires, and company news in the sidebar.

  1. Simple navigation – Events are displayed in list form, making it easy for users to scroll through the page and learn about upcoming events.

A strong company intranet means your employees have one single source of truth for everything—and this includes your employee handbook. With our Employee Handbook intranet template, you have one place for people to access your handbook, or any detailed document, in an easy-to-navigate format.

Organize each section with tabs so employees can click into specific parts of the document they’re looking for. Admins can also “check in” and “check out” content so you can always access the latest version and view older ones. You can also use your sidebar to drive culture by adding a section to highlight company values and display Recognition activity. You have the power to make your employee handbook page your own.

With a crisp and simplistic design, this intranet screenshot helps people navigate detailed documents in a flash.

Benefits of this intranet template:

  1. Navigate documents quickly – Categorize complicated documents into sections to make finding information easy for employees.
  2. Drive culture – Bring your people closer to company information and each other. Use your page to highlight company values and recognition activity!
  3. Easy to update – Every company goes through changes and so do critical documents. Have one trusted place for your handbook and track version updates.
