Workplace

Workplace by Facebook is well suited for marketing/advertising/dynamic environment when a lot of things are going on and people are willing to share some news and knowledge. Also, the knowledge of Facebook system is an asset when it comes to using Workplace - I imagine it may be quite difficult for people who don't know how Facebook look or work like. For "less digital" companies some classic messengers should do, for those "more digital' Workplace by Facebook seems to be a perfect solution, offering all of the features you need to deliver great management.

Pros

  • Familiarity: Workplace by Facebook has a familiar user interface and function similar to the Facebook social networking platform. This makes it easy for new colleagues at my workplace to pick up the workings and functions of it in a matter of hours.
  • Better Interaction: On a daily basis at work, I get to communicate officially with less than ten people in a company with over a thousand staffs. Thus, I have no bond or official interaction with colleagues outside my team and department. Workplace by Facebook has made it possible to interact with a lot of my other colleagues with whom I have no official contact. Practically every week, I get to know new faces at my workplace all thanks to Facebook.
  • Integration: Workplace by Facebook integrates well with our everyday third party programs at work such as Microsoft Azure, Okta, Salesforce ,Onedrive and Bluejeans. Workplace's integration with Bluejeans has been especially beneficial to the staffs at Iroko TV. Workplace's integration with Bluejeans has enabled team members to host meetings on Bluejeans and stream it live to be watched by interested colleagues.
  • This is very important in situations whereby some members of a project are unable to make it to a remote video meeting and this happens every time. In times past, we needed to take a note of the most important discussions at the meeting and email to the absent members, but most people rarely bothered reading the notes . With the Bluejeans integration with Workplace, project team members simply follow the meetings live via streaming on Workplace.

Cons

  • Maybe finding a way to create forms other than surveys.

Alternatives Considered

Several software solutions were explored and tested before Workplace. While Slack, Yammer, and Skype offered the ability to collaborate on a project and have in-the-moment conversations, there was a realization that much more was needed to create a truly collaborative culture. Workplace is a much better fit for our large (5000 employee) organization as an overall space to have discussions, build community, and exchange information

Return on Investment

  • 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.
