Last month men everywhere gave up their upper lips for Movember, a global movement which raises funds for prostate and testicular cancer research and promotes awareness for men’s mental health issues. Movember 2013 consisted of 1.1 million registered Mo Participants and raised a total of 146.6M CAD!
For the second year in a row some of our Intranet Connections’ team members joined the Movember movement. Our Team ICGROMO raised over $4,300, grew some interesting facial hair, raised awareness about an important cause and had a lot of fun. The best part? We tracked it all and promoted our efforts internally using our own Intranet Connections Intranet Software. At Intranet Connections we love how our intranet not only assists us in our day-to-day business needs, but also helps to improve our Company Culture and makes Intranet Connections a great place to work.

Hello there, fellow intranet fanatic. Today, I bring you joy and another reason to celebrate in the midst of this very festive season: Intranet Appreciation Day.
I use our intranet, EVERY day and yet, I have never taken a moment to profess my love for The SQIntranet** on public grounds. I LOVE my intranet because it is the ultimate resource. It is pretty, it is informative, it is flexible, and, it allows me to effectively help my teammates! Below, I’ve highlighted my favourite SQIntranet area and the respective specific business problem that it addresses. THANKS to the capabilities offered by Intranet Connections, I am able to point my teammates to this area regularly which makes my life much easier.
**The SQIntranet is the intranet used by Intranet Connections. SQ stands for “square box”, meaning simple. Simplicity is one of our core company (and product) values. Read more
Movember is coming to an end at Intranet Connections, but together the ICGROMO Team has put up a great fight in raising awareness and fundraising for men’s health issues including prostate and testicular cancer. If you missed the Intranet Connections Movember Intro Blog, be sure to check it out to meet the team and discover what Movember is all about.
**Featured Mo Team Members**
The last two featured team members of the Intranet Connections ICGROMO Team are our ‘Team Mascots’ so-to-speak, our Mo Dog Blue Lee and our Mo Sista Karleen Murphy. While these two Movember advocates are unable to grow moustaches of their own, they have encouraged the Mo Bros of their team in their moustache growth, promoted awareness in other ways and worked to raise a significant amount of funding for the team in support of the funded programs of Movember.
