Facebook launches Workplace

Facebook has announced the launch of its new business-connecting tool Workplace, to help organisations and employees collaborate across the MENA region. Workplace will serve as a communications platform that will include familiar Facebook features such as; news feed, groups and messages, as well as dashboards with analytics and integrations, which is a new Workplace-only feature.

“Facebook has spent its first 12 years connecting people in their personal lives. With Workplace, we are now able to help users improve productivity through collaboration on a platform that they are already familiar with,” says Jonathan Labin, Head, Facebook MENA. “We now want to help companies in the MENA region build connections between co-workers and transform how teams work together. Organisations are stronger and more productive when everyone comes together.”

Vipen Sethi, CEO, Landmark Group adds “For a large and diverse company like ours, Workplace is an ideal solution for our employees to connect and collaborate faster and more efficiently across teams and regions. Landmark employees also have the option of using the Workplace App in Arabic, which is especially great for Arabic-speaking team members.”
