Product Details

What is Workplace from Meta?

Workplace is a business communication tool from Meta that helps teams stay connected in a simple and secure way. With familiar features like Live Video and Groups, users can share information, engage your employees, build culture and connect people anywhere, anytime. It is designed so the user doesn't need to be an IT genius to use it, and so that anyone can pick it up and get started straight away.


Workplace integrates with tools like Office 365, Google Workspace and ServiceNow, or the user can build custom integrations to connect any other tools relied upon. The vendor states that security and privacy are at the heart of Workplace - user data belongs to the user, and it is kept separate from Facebook.


Workplace boasts over 7M users worldwide.

Workplace from Meta is being used in the entire Africa Zone at AB InBev - supporting around 13000 employees. We use this platform to address the issues of employee communication and increase employee engagement across the business. On this platform we run various campaigns to push employee engagement further and tackle issues brought up in surveys run each year by the company.

Workplace from Meta is used to connect our 15 international offices on one digital platform; helping our people share knowledge and expertise, get to know one another, and collaborate across regions and time zones. It enables us to effectively share globally-relevant news and updates, as well as creating a one-stop-shop for our people to go to for all knowledge related to the business (such as HR policies and training documents).

We use Workplace across the whole organization. For us, it is the only place where we can gather all 12000 associates in one place. The focus of this channel is to create a sense of belonging for associates. We evaluate this factor vie quarterly ESAT. The business problem it addresses is increasing the retention rate of our employees to ensure that business continues to grow.

Currently, we have 2 main channels of communication where we can cover all company. This is the email and Workplace. With out HR Marketing team, we are doing our best in giving a bigger focus to Workplace because it is a 2-sided channel instead of email. We encourage associates to share reactions, comments (both bad or good). Also, we work on increasing leadership communication in Workplace (TownHalls for all managers from C-level team) to show associates how beneficial this channel can be, compared to others.

Having Workplace from Facebook helps us communicate with the large number of employees we have at our organization. We currently use it across the entire organization in all departments. When the pandemic began, we really ramped up the live streaming capabilities to conduct all-employee town halls to keep our employees abreast of the quickly changing protocols where our front-line employees could ask questions in real-time and receive answers in real-time directly from our leaders. Implementing Workplace from Facebook helps our large organization feel a bit smaller where 1:1 connections are being made every day from our employees across the globe.

An all-in-one tool for internal communication. We use it in a single department, the Marketing team, it is an internal communication tool, it helps us to support the social media management of our organization. Sometimes it allows us to move the messages according to the hierarchy necessary for the response

Workplace by Facebook is used in my organization basically to carry out broadcasts of events, celebrations, announcements, or to provide information in a massive way to all employees in a simple way by sharing multi-media content without the need to install additional components on the computer. Generally this type of broadcast is aimed at large audiences.

We use Workplace by Facebook as a central company messaging tool and project management space where we can post quick updates on projects, create group chats to keep updated on project status, and check-in with each other. We have multiple groups to separate clients and other work and the search function and notification settings help us keep on track.

Workplace by Facebook is now pretty much our company's main way of broadcast communication (outside of email, which is still used especially for very important or time-sensitive info) and for different types of "themed" groups to share updates and info with one another. We have Workplace groups at the all-company level, for various sites, for various areas of work (both by department areas, such as HR, which has groups at both the country and global level, and by interests, such as for our DEI groups), for groups that may share an initiative, such as the Technology Employee Champions, a "secret" group for folks interested in testing and promoting new technology, etc. We also use the companion Workplace Chat as our DM application throughout the company. Workplace has allowed us to drastically decrease the amount of internal email sent, to support and create communities of interest, to stay connected as we all work remotely (we have fun on Workplace, too!), and we use Workplace Live to broadcast and record our large-scale meetings, such as our "town hall" meetings. We use Workplace to share tips with one another, share personal life experiences (creating a Workplace post about one's sabbatical experiences is a requirement of our sabbatical program), and many other things.

My company used to communicate through Facebook Workplace during the last 2 years, every department has its own channel to make the communication easier and more funny for team. And so on if any urgent updates or news the company used to publish it through the HR channels. One of the major reasons to use it is the Covid-19 Global Pandemic. Suddenly we are forced to stay at home and there're no communications tools.

Workplace was being used across the whole organization. We mainly used to communicate with different teams across different departments. It was used also for making announcements. It helped us lead our teams remotely throughout the difficult times of the pandemic to deliver our products to the customers, and the familiar user interface helped us get used to it fast.

It is being used across our entire company in order to improve collaboration in the workplace and communication. The overall hope is that it will reduce the amount of emails that are sent throughout the business in total. It addition, it allows you to make groups so that it's easier to collaborate with your business segment, across business segments, or in specialized groups you're doing projects with.

Workplace by Facebook is one of the best products that we use. It is the best tool for internal communication inside the organization, in my opinion. It is being used across the whole organization. It helps us to keep connected with the organization widely and with the team members at the lower level. It's very easy to chat, share, and connect with others in the organization.

We use Workplace by Facebook among the whole organization. Most of our employees are encouraged to use it on a regular basis. We generally use it on a daily basis to discuss what's going on in which department. We share our documents with others in respective groups. For new projects, every team member is asked to give updates in the project groups, so that every team member knows the latest status. We generally share data and documents with each other via Workplace by Facebook. Most of the time, it's very easy to use instead of other methods of internal communications. Workplace by Facebook, at our organization, helps greatly to keep connected with each other socially and professionally.

Initially, I buried myself into trial overwhelm as I searched for a client communication and review portal. Each one I tried suffered from one or more of the following:
  • Having almost everything but one specific element being left out.
  • The cost was prohibitive.
  • Time to learn and then deploy and teach was not an efficient use of resources.
  • Segmenting the communication and levels of access not achievable.
After about 5 trials, I was connected to an offer to try Facebook Workplace. It stepped into a perfect role for us and we use it from time to time with clients, depending on the client. I continue to recommend it to clients and a few are now using the platform. We continue to use it as an intraoffice communication tool and it is a great tool for us.

Edelman leverages Workplace to deliver corporate communications and updates to a global workforce. We receive updates about PTO policy, HR benefits, handbooks, learning opportunities, training, and additionally use it as a document manager for global IT information as well as local wifi password information. Finally, we receive local communications as well monthly with the office calendar and wifi password.

We use it to inform staff of daily events and new projects. We also put out PDFs, photos, and forms for easy access for staff. HR and building events keep staff updated as much as possible of all the work that is being done with departments and building renovations, etc. All staff have access to Workplace. So far it's been a very helpful tool. I do wish it had some type of form building section.

I work under a really big brokerage. We are almost completely worldwide. My company uses Workplace by Facebook across the whole organization as a means to have all the other realtors and workers together in one place, have specific groups, have documents that people need readily available, and to give answers to questions that people have. We also use it as a referral place where people in any state can pick up a referral that someone needs.

Our company uses Workplace by Facebook as a central location for company communications. The whole company uses it, not just the software developers. We use it for internal chats, company announcements, and wiki's. Before we started using Workplace, we used several disparate technologies to meet each of these needs, so having everything under one roof has been incredibly efficient and successful.

We use Workplace by Facebook on a daily basis to coordinate the work with our clients and inside the organization. We left Slack for Workplace because it feels tidier as we can talk about one topic on a publication and about another topic in another publication and the channels never cross.

For us, Workplace has gone beyond communication. It’s actually helping us solve problems. This is a way better tool when comparing to others to deal with professional conferences. Apart from that Workplace is used to quickly find co-workers and all relevant details, post details about work activities, set up groups, follow a work feed and watch live video projects from even our CFO they are closer than ever been.

Workplace by Facebook provides a relatively easy solution for group collaboration efforts in a company or organization. It helps provide a streamlined approach to project management, meeting assistance, and can be integrated with applications like Office 365. It also has a robust set of calling and communication options that can fit in with users utilizing different hardware systems.

I reviewed Workplace by Facebook and tested it by using it on a small team. It ended up being slightly wonky in our workflow as some of the team were uneasy with sharing private information with Facebook because of all the things with that. I like the concept, but it just didn’t work well for my team.
