INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY DEPARTMENT

Establishing a Knowledge Sharing Enterprise
MAS believes in enhancing productivity through knowledge sharing. OfficeNet II, launched in November 2004, is an important infrastructure for sharing information across MAS.

OfficeNet II improves the quality of project discussions and encourages staff to actively participate in cross-departmental initiatives, with collaborative features such as teamrooms and online meetings. Two campaigns were also introduced to encourage staff to share their expertise and interests as well as promote information sharing. The first campaign, Update Your Profile, encouraged staff across all levels to update their personal particulars. The aim was to create a better professional and personal understanding among MAS staff and an atmosphere of open sharing within MAS. The second campaign, Share An Article, encouraged staff to contribute articles, with awards for the best articles.
