The best tool for Internal Communications in organisations

Workplace by Facebook is well suited for organizations having a large number of employees or having remote work or multiple offices. It helps all of the users to connect straightforwardly, share various documents or files with other team members, create different groups for different projects, etc.

Collaboration - the app only gets better as the user interacts more with it. The group discussions can be helpful, as well as the instant messaging feature.
Multiple user communication - instead of a two-way communication
Media sharing - one can share unlimited videos, photos
Robust integration - integrates with other applications and allows you to customize how often you want to receive email communication.

Workplace by Facebook is a new real online workplace

Workplace by Facebook is well suited for the day-to-day requirements of internal online communication in an organization. We can keep connected with other colleges in a very easy and familiar way. These needs include: chatting with colleges, documents or data sharing with other team members, posting live updates about projects, etc. Workplace by Facebook is well suited for these scenarios. I think it's less appropriate for posting personal or non-professional updates or content.

Workplace is great as a team collaboration and communication tool that is easy to deploy and eliminates friction. I would also recommend it to small agencies who need a client communication portal as it does a great job filling the need. It is also a great tool for associations, community teams, and specialty groups like a club or employee group. As long as guidelines are set and you do not have a predisposition towards paranoia, I would think any group that has a need for communication that needs to be centralized, this can serve you well.

  • Great place for the HR department to post policies, forms, hiring.
  • Good way for departments to work together on simple events.
  • Good way to post daily events and get feedback from staff ongoing projects.
  • It should be only for work-related items. No personal information should be posted.

It has helped me lots when I need a referral or when I have a specific question. I can find information or get my questions answered almost immediately. I don't think it's appropriate for a company to use it as its number one means of communication because when you have so many people that are a part of it, a lot of things get lost in communication.

It’s easy to use and is so similar to how we use Facebook for personal social networking. However, I can see how this becomes a problem when employees are spending too much time on the platform and less focus on the job. This especially applies to employees that work front line.

Workplace by Facebook is something like a social Community. It is very much effective in the cases where an individual wants to raise a point/concern/issue /idea and people can look at it and respond or take action if required. The Voice reaches to all the hierarchy at the same time and no time on approvals or clearance is taken. The Output is very much transparent to everyone.

Workplace is perfectly suited for very big organizations that need to make sure every employee understands their mission and can get a birds-eye view of what each area is doing. It is useful for companies that work in different geos as it makes you feel closer to colleagues that you may not meet face to face.

Workplace by Facebook is a very good and intuitive way to have efficient conversations with groups or individuals. It is perfect when you need to post an item for review and have a real-time conversation with other team members. It is best suited in small organizations and in big organizations, Workplace by Facebook can be used in between departments for communication between team members and team leaders.

Workplace is an excellent and intuitive way to have efficient conversations with groups or individuals. It excels when you need to post an item for review and have a real-time conversation with a team. It also takes advantage of the Facebook-style interface to give remote employees a way to interact and engage with the team that offsets the need for face-to-face conversations. It does not replace task and project management tools though.

A Quality Communication Platform for Your Company

Likelihood to Recommend

Workplace by Facebook works well when you have a hard time managing many technologies for chats, company information, etc. Our company had many technologies we were using, and some were used just by a single department. By switching everyone in the company to Workplace by Facebook, we lost most of the headaches that came from having everyone using different technologies for communication. If your company effectively manages its disparate communication methods already, then Workplace by Facebook will be less valuable.

Workplace is great and is greater if you work with young people, the interface is similar to Facebook, so the people feel relaxed to work there. It is funny to use because time to time people respond to serious topics with a meme or a GIF that helps to relax the conversation and be happier at work.

It works very well in a company or organization that doesn't already have integrated HR style systems in place. It's not perfect and some features can be more tedious to use than others. Many do seem to like its easy to use interface and find it more approachable than other products.

Workplace is great for keeping up with team members and easily chatting with them throughout the day. Our company focuses a lot on interrelated projects, so there are often many different people working on one project at the same time. Workplace makes it easy to discuss these projects with our team members without having to go through email.

In my current organization, we need to communicate frequently with clients based in different geographical locations. Workplace is a one-stop-shop solution for this. We can even do organization video conferencing using the video calling feature.

Workplace by Facebook is recommended when companies and/or departments have pain points regarding communication alignment, disparate system with documents and content spread through the entire organization, and lack of a single source-of-truth for content and knowledge sharing and management.

It is well suited for a non-profit or any social groups where the budget is low but communication plays a key role. It helps in sharing files, media, photos/videos, etc. Many big Organizations may not choose Facebook's workplace, as it may seem like a social media tool because of its association with Facebook.

Likelihood to Recommend

Workplace is good for big organizations or remote locations where a central hub of communication is very useful and you can foster a sense of community and closure between different teams that work in different time zones. It is useful for big international companies but may not be best for smaller organizations.

It might be well suited for a large team to communicate and collaborate on projects. It's a fine communication tool, but very poor for scheduling, task management, etc. If I'm going to use a "workplace" tool, I'd like for it to function as more than just a glorified chat feature.

If you have Office 365 with Skype Sharepoint Yammer and HR tools like MySuccess there is no need to replace them with Workplace. If you are on the way to implementing a new global tool it is worth it to consider, especially when you have a lot of young employees who may see the benefits of using that tool.
