Just imagine you have joined a new company and this is your first day. A cord is plugged with system and then into your head (without the cord going into your brain, of course) and all the knowledge about performing the new job, don and don’t are in front of you. You don’t need to ask anyone and not having to ask questions, and you’d immediately productive from first day. Sounds unrealistic? But it’s true. This is possible through internal wiki present at workplace.
What’s internal workplace wiki?
Intelli wiki is defined as a collection of files prepared for knowledge purpose. Powered with hyperlinks, it keeps information centralize and ensures that the process of documenting important data stays simple. Internal workplace Wiki will help in keeping knowledge and other documents organized in one place, enabling employees and other authorized person, to gain any info or to add and edit data at any time.
Intelli wiki is a central database where all the coworkers can store internal documentation about processes, projects or products. One can think it as Wikipedia of their company. Have any doubt about anything? Just go through the internal Wikipedia and you will get the answers.
Why OEMs Need An Internal Workplace Wiki?
OEMs that don’t have an internal workplace wiki are at a disadvantage versus those who owns it. Here are few reasons why having an internal wiki is necessary.
Organizations spend thousands of dollars a year in recruiting employees for various positions, but don’t invest much on making new hires productive, quickly and efficiently. Every day someone takes to ramp up to full speed is money gone from the OEMs bank account and result in form of lost productivity.
For newly hiring, starting new job is surely stressful as they don’t have any clue about what to do, how to do it, or from whom they can for help. All this can make the new joiner feel inept. But in reality nobody is responsible for this fault, as there’s no training session for working.
But if an OEM owns an internal wiki, new joiners can look up what they need to do on their job with a simple search. It will make them feel smarter and saves the organization money on ramp-up costs.
According to survey reports, new joiners spend 19% of their time in searching for what to do and how to do their jobs. If you think in logical way, for every 5 people you hire, you basically get productive work from 4 only.
Having a centralized internal wiki that contains internal document, links, PDFs that allows team to collaborate on a particular topic is a huge time saver. In fact, according to same study as above, it is concluded that by setting us such systems, it is easier to search and gather information, and OEMs not only recoup that lost 19% but the productivity can be increased up to 35%.
Also, assume if any employee inevitably leaves, he/she will take all the institutional knowledge with them. Surely, there’s the “brain dump” approach if OEMs ask that person to write down everything they knows before leaving, but it will not work, as it’s hard to document everything so quickly in a short time period and also important information may be inevitably forgotten. But with an internal wiki, OEMs can systematically capture team’s knowledge as it’s happening in real time, so they can have it when ever needed. Over time, the accruement of institutional knowledge becomes a huge competitive advantage for OEMs.
