By taking advantage of Unily Connect, you can unite your digital landscape and provide a single pane of glass experience for all your users. Our one-stop-shop approach will result in more consistent and efficient user experiences for your users, which in turn will increase platform adoption and productivity. This week's article will focus on integration with Workplace by Facebook, an online team collaboration tool.

Unily and Workplace integration

Integrating applications with Unily Connect lets you cut through the noise created by multiple systems, streamlines logging in by having a single sign-on, and provides one highly polished, consistent user experience across your entire digital landscape. Below we highlight some of the potential benefits for your business when integrating Unily with Workplace.

Promote collaboration with Workplace groups

As the modern enterprise grows in scope and complexity, limited levels of communication and knowledge often lead to organizational silos. One way of breaking silos is to make communication your top priority. Integrate Workplace into Unily for a comprehensive communications platform.

With Workplace, there's no upskilling or training required because it has a similar look and feel to Facebook, its consumer counterpart. It becomes easy, then, for your people to build networks, get their profile out there, and find new contacts. By integrating Unily with Workplace, you could have departmental or action groups, such as an employee experience group, and then use Unily's targeting capabilities to engage the right audience. If you want the latest group notifications to stand out, Unily’s grid and widget system gives you the flexibility to add these notifications into a tile on a landing page of your choosing.

Go further and take project work to the next level by adding Workplace groups into your existing workstream. Create Workplace groups to launch new projects, promote dynamic team structures, and share crucial project information. With a Workplace integration into Unily, you're adding incredible collaborative features to your expansive Unily digital landscape.

Innovative communications solutions with Workplace bots

Getting your people to fill out surveys or provide feedback on their experiences at work can be a challenging task. Traditional surveys may sometimes appear too formal and detached, and they’re relying on your people to be engaged enough to want to contribute. With a Workplace survey bot, you can offer more interactive, user-friendly experiences.

With a Workplace survey bot, you can create custom surveys for different groups, because not all survey questions will be applicable to everyone, so being able to target audiences will lead to a better response rate and higher quality data. Consider where you believe the bot will have the most impact, on your homepage for everyone to quickly access, or on specific landing pages.

Traditional surveys can sometimes appear to be a one-way process, where workers fill them out and then they disappear once submitted, never really knowing whether anything has been actioned. A Workplace survey bot allows you to be more dynamic in the way you deal with data and actioning change - gather replies quickly, analyze the results, and implement changes.

Never miss a beat with Workplace events

Stay up to date with the latest goings-on in your organization, by integrating Workplace into Unily and setting up Workplace events. The events functionality is easy to set up and anyone in your organization view upcoming events. It’s a great way to keep everyone connected, in and out of the workplace. Use Unily's notifications feature to let your people know about the exciting new events you have planned, and to send them reminders.

“Culture eats strategy for breakfast.”

Peter Drucker

Place culture first and watch your employee experience scores soar. Use your Unily integration with Workplace to create social events, like team lunches, celebrations, or offsite days for any department to improve communication, team bonding, and levels of positivity. Make full use of Workplace events and plan events ahead of time, showing your dedication to improving workplace culture. Alternatively, empower your HR department to create training sessions and set them up as Workplace events.
