Phase Out of Meta’s Workplace Opens Door to More Powerful Platforms



Phase Out of Meta’s Workplace Opens Door to More Powerful Platforms

Many organizations are actively reevaluating their options given the news that Meta is sunsetting their employee experience platform, Workplace. As internal comms, HR, and IT teams scope out new platforms, we believe this presents a chance for businesses to level up their digital workspaces.

We know Meta points to WorkVivo as a platform of choice, but we suggest companies take their entire digital workplace setup into account when considering their options.

We believe this is especially true for companies that use Microsoft tools.

PeopleOne as a Leading Alternative for Microsoft-Licensed Organizations

PeopleOne — a SharePoint-based intranet designed by Microsoft experts — goes beyond corporate communication with added features for employee engagement and maximizing Microsoft tools. The platform integrates with your M365 applications and common third-party applications.

If your organization uses SharePoint, PeopleOne makes it simple for any department to create and customize their own sites without leaning on IT. The platform also grants your teams permission-based content authoring. These controls make it easy for you to expand or restrict who can publish or review content – giving you more control.

Looking at Workplace, you have features that focus on community interaction and engagement analytics. This is standard for an Enterprise Social Network (ESN). A modern intranet like PeopleOne offers similar spaces for community engagement, but in a way that brings focus to your most relevant updates, news, or content.

Here are a few other features you’ll find in PeopleOne that separate it from an ESN:

  • The ability to target content to specific regions, offices, or even teams for more effective top-down communication
  • Employee feedback channels like NPS surveys and polls to measure employee engagement
  • Customizable analytics with granular data for every feature, so you know how people interact with your content
  • Tailored search with a people directory, FAQs, quick links, and wiki notes for faster workflows and knowledge sharing
  • Recognition and awards modules like employee spotlights that uplift your teams
A Microsoft Partner at Your Side

PeopleOne is developed by a Microsoft partner, Eleviant-CTG. We give your organization access to Microsoft experts that don’t stop at delivering an employee engagement platform.

When needed, we support you with SharePoint consultation, modernization, and cloud migration services.

Beyond SharePoint, we’ve helped many clients develop apps, set up BI, and automate rote tasks using Microsoft tools like MS Fabric and Power Apps.

Consultation for Workplace Customers Making the Transition

At no cost, we offer current Workplace customers:

  • A 30-minute strategy call to discuss your Workplace setup, goals for your next platform, and the vision for your digital workplace
  • A 30-minute live demo
  • A 30-minute workshop where we share plans for migration and adoption

Additionally, we’re giving three months of service off for Workplace customers that select PeopleOne as their intranet vendor by the end of 2024.
