Shire: Planning and building The Hub, a modern digital workspace, on SharePoint and Office 365

Shire, a recognized leader in rare diseases, has a passion to improve the quality of life of their patients. A core component of their business strategy is to plan for rapid growth, both organically and through acquisition. They just completed their largest acquisition to-date, quadrupling the size of their global workforce.

During this expansion, change management was significant to keep everyone informed and engaged. With Office 365 and SharePoint, Shire could:

  • Build & host their digital workspace with a strong rigor on content governance
  • Secure the content being produced
  • Ensure that content is curated in a consistent, compelling way, that’s also easy to find.

Watch this on-demand video of Shire leaders and our SharePoint MVPs discussing their requirements and best practices to plan, build and use a functional, beautiful, engaging digital workspace, The Hub, that helps inform and engage everyone throughout the company.

They highlighted the use of innovations including SharePoint communication sites, the SharePoint Framework (SPFx), multi-column page support, new web parts and page capabilities – all used to create rich and compelling sites that meet and pass business and technical requirements.
