Best practices to enable your whole organisation to communicate, collaborate and get the most out of Workplace
Launching Workplace is just the beginning of your Workplace journey to transforming the way you work and connecting your whole organisation. Now the real fun starts!
In order for Workplace to truly change the way that people work together, it’s important to understand what your goals are with Workplace and educate your organisation on how each member can work smarter and more efficiently together.
Using Workplace to share information is at the heart of connecting and communicating on Workplace. Connecting on Workplace gives each member a voice through groups, going live, events and Work Chat, allowing them to communicate in the best way for them.
- Connect & Communicate
- Measure your success
- Employee safety
The tools you love, directly inside Workplace
Workplace now connects with popular enterprise tools so your team can get work done faster. Workplace’s growing collection of integrations help you share, stay current and simplify processes.
Choose from an ever growing list of pre-defined integrations including Sharepoint, Box, Zoom, Salesforce and many more or speak to your consultant about custom built integrations or enabling bots that automatically send notifications in groups or Workplace Chat so that information travels faster and work gets done quicker.
Do you have to create a personal Facebook account when you use Workplace?
You don’t need a personal Facebook account to sign up for Workplace and there are separate websites and apps for both.
Is there a risk that someone might share something from their personal Facebook account to their Workplace account? Or alternatively, can someone accidentally share confidential work information from their Workplace account on their personal Facebook profile?
Who owns the information that employees create?
In Workplace Standard, you own the content you post and share, although Facebook’s community standards apply. You have the option to delete or deactivate your account at any time. If you are using Workplace Premium, then your company owns and administers your Workplace community and data.
Why should my company pay for Workplace Premium when some of the features are available for free on Facebook and Workplace Standard?
Enterprises have specific requirements for tools in the workplace. Enterprise features such as single sign-on (SSO), secure identity management, enterprise support and analytics are included in Workplace Premium. The company retains ownership of the data their employees post in Workplace, and have mechanisms to export that information and manage its community in ways that are not available on Facebook or Workplace Standard.
What is the difference between the free and paying (Standard and Premium) plans?
- Product features: Feature-wise, Workplace Standard has all of the features you can expect from Workplace such as News Feed, groups, chat, live video, etc. Workplace Premium also has administrative features such as analytics, a Company Dashboard and integration with identity providers. Premium customers have access to integration APIs for bots, account management, e-discovery and policy enforcement. These integrations can be custom-built or enabled through our partner ecosystem.
- Content: For Workplace Premium, content is reviewed by admins. For Workplace Standard, Facebook’s community standards apply.
- Workplace Premium is the paid product we launched to the public in October 2016, and many organisations have been using it. Workplace Standard is being introduced as an additional free plan.
