Likelihood to Recommend

Workplace by Facebook

To me there's not a better tool out there for sharing company and employee news. If you use Facebook, then you will have no problem transitioning to Workplace by Facebook. If you are concerned about getting distracted and losing time (which may happen on Facebook) don't be concerned. The developers of Workplace by Facebook have really done a good job about making it a productivity tool first, and a social tool second.

Pros

Workplace by Facebook

  • Cheaper pricing -- All of Workplace costs just $3 per user, and it replaces most of the vital tools that Slack charges more money for per month.
  • Since most of the tools follow the design of the rest of the Facebook interfaces, it's quite easy to learn and on-board.
  • It's really easy to configure privacy and security settings, and the security offered by Facebook is pretty good in general as well.

Cons

Workplace by Facebook

  • While the integrations bring collaboration to Workplace, it would be nice to have more collaboration, presentation, and productivity tools that are native to the platform.
  • Some of the interfaces can be slow to load -- This is a shared issue with Slack, and I haven't seen a collaboration platform get this right yet.
  • Sometimes, there's too little contrast from the rest of Facebook. People tend to interpret the platform as more of a social setting, which can detract from the discussion, compared to other workplace-only tools like Slack.

Alternatives Considered

Workplace by Facebook

We recently migrated from the premium plan of Slack to Workplace by Facebook. We found that the security and privacy options were more easy to control, and that Facebook's UI was generally better-designed and more intuitive. Since Slack's extension/integration ecosystem is completely open, there had been some poor-quality integrations that have detracted from our team's efficiency, and I believe this has gotten better since we transitioned to Workplace by Facebook.

Return on Investment

Workplace by Facebook

  • I am not sure if we can evaluate ROI with this tool. The main goal was to engage the end users and create a sense of community
  • You may argue that employees are more engaged and therefore there is less job turn over. However, I do not have data to support this argument.
