NorWest Co-op Community Health is the only healthcare co-operative in Manitoba. Based on the values of respect, innovation, and cooperation, NorWest engages the community in health and wellness and provides services and programming in primary health care, community development, counselling and support services, and early learning and childcare. Other areas of focus include family violence, immigrant and refugee matters, substance abuse during pregnancy, nursing foot care, and Indigenous issues.

In order to strengthen internal communication, engagement, and the accessibility of resources among employees, the Relish Development team created both a primary and secondary means in which employees can conveniently stay up-to-date and access needed information at their fingertips.

What We Made

The project consisted of two components: First, an internal portal targeted specifically to NorWest Co-op employees was built into the existing company website, giving them access to internal documents, staff directories, and a memo generation system complete with a moderator approval process.

Second, an app was developed as an extension of the portal for convenience and mobility. The portal and the app are updated simultaneously through one system and accessed through the event calendar, with in-depth training provided to staff in utilizing the new portal.
