Workplace is an enterprise connectivity platform developed by Facebook, Inc. and featuring tools like groups, instant messaging and News Feed. Workplace was first announced on January 14, 2015. It launched in beta as Facebook at Work with customers including the Royal Bank of Scotland before officially launching in October 2016.

Facebook recognized the importance and need for a Workplace product in 2011 when the company began using Facebook groups for business purposes internally for collaboration and communication. Alongside Facebook Messenger, these private groups helped Facebook employees work more efficiently together by reducing their reliance on email and other Software as a Service tool.

Workplace and Facebook
While Workplace accounts are set up and run separately from Facebook accounts, Workplace benefits from much of the underlying technology and innovation that powers Facebook.

Data Centers: Workplace data is stored across 12 Facebook-owned data centers around the world. Because Facebook owns or leases all the land surrounding these data centers, it can monitor the physical integrity of the area and ensure the secure destruction of electronic media containing data after use.

AI: Workplace benefits from Facebook’s leadership in AI research. AI makes Workplace “more meaningful” by using machine learning to sort the most relevant information in the News Feed and make intelligent recommendations while ‘downranking’ less valuable information.

Safety Check for Workplace: In October 2018, Workplace announced the launch of Safety Check. Originally developed by Facebook engineers after the 2011 Japanese tsunami, Safety Check for Facebook is a way to let friends and family know you’re safe in a crisis, and check on others in the affected area. With Safety Check for Workplace, organizations can identify employees who may be affected by a crisis, send multiple modes of notification, and monitor responses. Safety Check was the most-requested feature from Workplace customers and has been activated by Delta Air Lines (during Hurricane Florence and the Hokkaido earthquake).

Workplace has an aggregated rating of 4 stars from 1,379 reviews on G2 and an aggregated rating of 4 stars from 103 reviews on Gartner PeerInsights. It has been praised as a tool for internal communication and collaboration, but critics have noted that it lacks some project management functionality.

Workplace is used by over 30,000 organizations around the world. Organizations using Workplace include WWF, Save the Children, UNICEF, United Way, Boy Scouts of America, Comic Relief, Australian Catholic University and Norwegian Refugee Council. Starbucks, Walmart, Virgin Atlantic, Heineken, Royal Bank of Scotland, Campbell and As of February 2019, there are 2 million paying users.

Workplace integrates with over 50 popular enterprise tools. The growing collection of integrations are designed to help users share, stay current, and simplify complicated internal processes.

At the F8 Conference in May 2018, Workplace announced the launch] of the Integrations Directory with popular SaaS tools like Jira Cloud by Atlassian, Microsoft Sharepoint, ServiceNow, Adobe Sign, SurveyMonkey, Google Drive, Zoom and DropBox.

Workplace works with a large number of service partners across the globe. These partners help Workplace customers with many elements of their Workplace deployment, including planning, use cases, roll-out, change management, training and custom integrations.
