At Facebook, we’ve always had an open and transparent culture. We believe helping people share what matters to them and seeing what matters to the people they care about is important and that is as true at work as it is anywhere else. People do their best work when they have more knowledge of what’s going on at their company, and people work together better when they understand their colleagues.
Businesses can now sign on to Workspace now. Workspace has essential features like the Messenger, to share feedback about what teams working on in Groups, discussion, progress reports on projects, and participate in discussions happening across the company in a version of News Feed.
