Sticky announcements are those announcements that should always be available for the view of employees. In the Announcement tab, as and when new announcements are posted, the old ones are pushed down. However, if an announcement is created as a Sticky announcement, then it will always be available under the Sticky Announcement tab for employees to view it.
If you would like to tag any of your announcements as important, then you can mark them as 'Sticky' so that these can be viewed any time by your employees.
