The Workplace disconnect: Why the shutdown of Workplace from Meta can level up your organization

On May 15, 2024, tech company Meta announced that they will be discontinuing their business communication platform, Workplace. Customers will still have access to the platform until May 2026, after which their accounts will be terminated and the platform is disabled.

Although the memo Meta customers received mentioned WorkVivo by Zoom as a preferred migration partner, we encourage organizations to reassess their internal strategies and carefully select a secure and private platform that works the way they need it to.

 Why should your organization use an employee experience (EX) platform? 

With the workforce being distributed geographically between in-office and remote workers, it’s important to align all of your employees and help them feel a sense of belonging. Email and chat alone don’t cut it when you need to build a thriving work culture.

Organizations need platforms that allow for a free flow of ideas and spaces for the leadership and employees to interact. A virtual headquarters where employees can log in to and access their schedules, read company news, and access company policies—and it needs to communicate with everyone else.

Not being connected in a world that's become increasingly digital isn’t sustainable for modern organizations. Studies have shown that good employee experience (EX) drives revenue, and the best way to improve EX is by moving to a platform purposefully designed for this.
