Companies that communicate better, perform better.
One of the best features of Workplace by Facebook is live streaming video. It is easy to "Go Live" from a smartphone and from a browser on your desktop. It is a great way to communicate updates to a team, do executive "Ask Me Anything" sessions, and interviews with employees while traveling to different offices. We use live streaming quite a bit for communicating at ServiceRocket. There are many ways to improve communications and bring people together using live streaming at work.
At a recent Workplace by Facebook User Group in Palo Alto, ServiceRocket founder and CEO, Rob Castaneda, shared his ideas for how to use live streaming at work to improve communication, increase employee engagement, and otherwise being a more effective leader. This is an important topic since communications is a critical skill in executive leadership and in organizational performance. But don't just take my word for it. An article in Harvard Business Review calls poor communications the "silent killer of big companies" and describes successful companies as those that adopt communication methods that enable executives to get closer to employees, put in place communications systems that promote dialog, rather than monologue, and engage employees to become more active participants in the communications process.
