Knowledge sharing app for the UN social network

One-stop space available within the UN social network for all agencies' users & stakeholders

Knowledge sharing app for the UN social network

Company: United Nations

Year: 2011



Knowledge sharing. It enables sharing and storage of knowledge and material like files, photos and video content in any UN official language for the benefit of other colleagues now and in future because it also acts as a database where retrieval is possible. This is a secure medium for the safe dissemination of material to the intended persons within the network.

Collaboration. Users can also create online spaces for discussion and collaboration. This is one of the major benefits of Teamworks because interaction within this secure platform enables the exchange of ideas, experiences and material. This enhances friendly working environments because of the constant communication and the up-to-date information on one’s colleague’s activities.

Excellence. It enables users to excel professionally because their work is open to many. The online discussions open up ways in which users expose their professional skills which increase their visibility. This opens the user to the possibilities of promotions to more challenging opportunities that suit their level of skills.

Campaigns. It is a tool for campaigns and advertisements which reach many colleagues which increases responses and participants. This is because the information is available to all UNDP staff across the globe. This helps the users in improving outreach and advocacy of their campaigns.

Non-disclosure limitation
