In a recent blog post, Facebook unveiled a number of new features for the company’s Workplace platform to enhance the employee experience and virtual collaboration.
Workplace is Facebook’s communication tool that connects Facebook’s employees.
New features include third-party integrations to synchronize events and calendars, live question and answer experiences, and capabilities focused on supporting diversity and inclusion.
According to Facebook, “These enhancements will make sure that every employee has the opportunity to feel seen and heard by leadership and help people gain a better understanding of how their role contributes to the broader company strategy.”
In an interview with Tech Republic, Head of Product at Workplace, Ujjwal Singh explained what these new features will entail.
He noted, “For me as a presenter, I get information on the employee. I get profile information, who asked the question, what their role is, so I can personalize my answer for that particular employee. And what this leads to, what we’ve seen over and over again with customers is [that this] leads to employees feeling like they’ve been seen, heard, and leads to real connection.”
