knowledge library: Simplifying knowledge sharing
Their first step was to overhaul their outdated and cumbersome intranet with Workplace from Meta's Knowledge Library. This made accessing key company information and resources a breeze for all employees. Knowledge Library, a cloud-based dynamic feature within Workplace, enables employees to collaborate, manage, store, and share essential documents.
With the assistance of LineZero, a trusted Workplace partner, they could structure their Knowledge Library into 50 categories. These included human resources and training documents, accounting policies, operations, business processes and tools, compliance resources, corporate social responsibilities, and EDIB resources. Every employee now has access to a central hub where they can find crucial documents and resources. Thanks to the mobile-friendly nature of Workplace from Meta, access is seamless across all devices.
Connecting offices Across the globe!
Given their global footprint with over 80 offices, it was a challenge for employees to feel connected. Their next move was to use Workplace Groups to connect their global locations. Workplace Groups, akin to Facebook groups, are a fun and handy feature that lets employees build communities and collaborate on projects in dedicated spaces.
With the advisory services of LineZero, they set up Workplace Groups for each of their geographic locations. This allowed employees to connect with colleagues in their area. They also created groups for specific departments and teams.
Global Offices, Local Culture!
They didn't stop at connecting specific locations and departments but also formed a unified group to connect all their locations worldwide. This group is frequently used for company-wide announcements, keeping the entire organization updated.
The result? A cohesive internal communication platform where everyone feels included, connected, and informed. Regardless of geographical distance, they've successfully brought everyone together.
93% of Employees on workplace within 12 weeks!
The company saw a successful launch with a remarkable 93% of its employees activated on Workplace within just 12 weeks. For a sprawling company like theirs, that's an extraordinary achievement. The secret? Their leadership team was enthusiastically involved from the outset, setting off a chain reaction across the organization and leading to rapid adoption.
LineZero worked with them to conduct Workplace workshops for key stakeholders or "champions" from each department and location. This drive led to an enthusiastic adoption and widespread usage of Workplace. LineZero also aided in crafting messaging on communication plans for various personas, stirring excitement about the platform across the organization
The workshops and communication plans ensured that employees knew exactly what Workplace was, its benefits, and how to use it effectively, making for a smooth transition.
