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 at Nestlé joins 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.

Nestlé has pledged to move quickly to turn good ideas into great products to meet fast-changing consumer demand. With the majority of its employees active on the platform, 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. Because Workplace is easy to use, it can connect everyone and reach employees where they are.

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. Amongst other advantages, managers can use Live video to connect directly with employees at different locations. Sales teams can also use Workplace for daily check-ins and to share information and best practice.

Commenting on the move to Workplace, Nestlé Executive Vice President 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.”
