Communicating electronically with employees is on the rise in Canada, more than doubling in the past two years according to a new study.

In a survey of 303 companies across the country, Aon Consulting found 67 per cent of companies have implemented intranet systems. And half of the remaining organizations without intranets plan on implementing one in the next 18 months.

Providing current information was cited as the primary business reason for implementing intranet systems and HR policies and HR process management systems were ranked as the most valued tools.
