Nestlé has adopted Workplace by Facebook as its global internal communication tool, to connect its workforce and better serve consumers.
The announcement comes as the latest and largest wave of staff join the platform, part of a process that began only nine months ago. Today, around 210,000 of its employees worldwide use the platform to connect and collaborate.
With the majority of its employees active on the platform, the company said Workplace is already making a difference. Internal engagement is higher and responses faster. People are experimenting and collaborating more, as well as sharing information and ideas.
Workplace offers familiar Facebook features such as News Feed, Groups, Chat, events and live streams, as well as seamless mobile integration.
The first wave of market adoption including Mexico, Brazil, the Middle East and South Africa saw 25 times higher engagement per post and very high rate of use on mobile devices.
Nestlé Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer Zone Asia, Oceania and sub-Saharan Africa (AOA) Chris Johnson, said: “Nestlé is a people-first environment. We really rely on our talented teams to manage more than 2,000 Nestlé brands worldwide. We help our employees develop and we give them the right tools, so Workplace is a perfect fit.”
