2017 is almost over. The beginning and the end of each year brings unique employee engagement opportunities. These can be incredibly beneficial for organisational transparency, moral and efficiency.
We've gathered the top EOY/BOY best practices and ideas for you to engage your management and employees with. These employee engagement ideas have been created with Workplace by Facebook in mind. Workplace is a new enterprise system created by Facebook and built for enhancing communication and collaboration in the Digital Workplace.
