Workplace By Facebook

Workplace By Facebook: Collaborating Towards Success

Workplace by Facebook is a secure communication tool for employees  to instantly connect and collaborate, from anywhere, at anytime. By breaking down silos and connecting everybody from the boardroom to remote workers, companies are able to boost team collaboration and engagement. Organizations of all sizes can use familiar Facebook features such as News Feed, groups, chat and events to get things done from their mobile or desktop. Not to mention, Workplace’s Integration Directory connects to the apps you already use and love, making it easier to store information and develop your people within one platform. Start working better together with Workplace by Facebook.

Boost Team Collaboration

Intro

With business growth, challenges can arise both internally and externally for organizations. Collaboration amongst teams is just as important, but getting everybody on the same page, let alone in the same room, can become nearly impossible to achieve due to a dispersed workforce. Workplace by Facebook can help mitigate those breakdowns in communication and get everyone on the same page.

Groups eliminate distance between dispersed teams by creating a secure space to collaborate with the right people, and share information and files. Workplace becomes the one platform to connect people from different teams, who are all involved on the same certain project to share feedback, provide insight, and overall change the dynamic of how employees work together.

Corporate culture is also a dynamic of a company that can weaken as an organization grows in size. Employees across the organization may find it harder to keep up with new people joining the team or Human Resources may be receiving less feedback from a growing distribution list. Reignite enthusiasm and engagement with Workplace by posting photos of new hires to the platform, or get a feel for the pulse of the company by posting a poll to a group. With email no longer fit for duty, Workplace is happy to pick up the slack.

Ease 5 Business Challenges with Workplace

Workplace by Facebook Chat

Here are five common business challenges organizations face and how the enterprise collaboration tool, Workplace by Facebook, can help address them.

Terms to Know

Groups: Create a private space to discuss projects, mange information and securely share documents with colleagues or clients. Choose whether a group should be open, closed or secret to manage access and ensure that the right people have access to the information they need.

Productivity in the Workplace

Intro

While familiar Facebook features like News Feed, Groups, and Chat all benefit company productivity, there are additional capabilities within Workplace that take efficiency to the next level.

Integrations – Thanks to integrations, it is possible to build powerful bots that interact with users in groups and chat. Bots can be built to automatically post content into groups, respond to questions, or take action when it is mentioned on a post. Bots can also be built to converse with employees in Work Chat, allowing for real-time feedback or handling requests with structured conversation elements like quick replies and persistent menus. Here at SADA, employees are served lunch on a daily basis and the hot question of the day is always “What’s for lunch?” Thanks to SADA’s Workplace LunchBot, employees have access to the weekly menu and receive a message when lunch is served. The LunchBot has relieved the People Operations team from answering redundant questions and simplified how people are notified.

Live Stream – Organizing a town hall or a company-wide meeting for every employee to attend is nearly impossible. Not only do you have to schedule across different teams and departments, but you also have to figure out infrastructure capacity for an auditorium that will fit everyone. Using Workplace’s Live Stream feature, you can allow the opportunity for everyone to hear the actual live message even though they may not have been able to fit in the auditorium. For people on calls or offsite, the stream video will be saved in a group and a recorded version can be watched.

Bots in Chat

Workplace’s Social Enterprise Adoption Plan

Intro

Workplace by Facebook is familiar and easy to use, making it fun for employees to post, comment, and engage with peers. In order to maximize the communication tool, there are a few adoption tips SADA recommends:

  • Establish Groups: To better manage the group, objectives and purposes should be set and pinned to the top of a Group in order to ensure proper use of the community.
  • Populate Content: Adding employees to a platform of an empty network will lead to failure. In order to help develop the correct habits among employees, it is important to establish a clear set of best practices.
  • Evaluate Success: Do NOT wait to measure network usage. Measuring network usage should begin from day one and continue past launch. Adoption is a continuous process with an enterprise communication platform. Aim for continual improvement in levels of participation. Always look for new workflows where Workplace can be integrated to increase adoption.

Future of Workplace

Intro

Workplace by Facebook has standard features that every company uses, but Workplace also aims to continuously improve the platform in order to constantly improve its efficiency. Take a look at some of the newer features hot off the press:

  • Know your colleagues, build connections – Workplace Profiles are the place to go to connect with and learn more about your colleagues. Workplace added new features to make the platform a central directory.
  • Team and product groups now have synced chat – Employees on Workplace often use a mix of chat and Teams & Projects groups to collaborate and work together. Teams & Projects groups were separate from chat, but Workplace is launching a feature that will automatically create a chat group for existing Teams & Projects groups. The ability to chat real-time within groups will make it even easier for teams to work together and stay in touch throughout the day.
