Getting Hourly Workers onto


Best Practices for Aligning Legal, HR, and Communications Stakeholders


Wednesday, June 6
10-11am PT / 1-2pm ET


Bringing thousands of frontline, hourly employees onto your Workplace by Facebook network creates a range of questions and challenges for large organizations. How does a company prevent potential wage and hour violations, govern for the use of personal devices at work, and communicate the difference between “required” and “optional” use of the platform?

Join collaboration expert Carrie Basham Young, CEO of Workplace partner Talk Social to Me, and Allison Eckstrom, Employment and Labor Partner at the global law firm Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, as they share practical solutions for the most common barriers that prevent hourly workers from participating on Workplace.

Ideal attendees for this webinar include CHROs, CLOs, CCOs, in-house counsel, and other decision-makers involved in providing technology, education, and programs to hourly employees. Attendees will come away from the webinar with stronger understanding of how to be ‘Better, Together,’ without breaking the law.

Measuring Community Success and Building Engagement with Data

Presented by Workplace by Facebook, Talk Social to Me, and SWOOP Analytics

Knowing the number of active users, comments, and “likes” in your employee community is a good start—but these basic metrics don’t tell the whole story. Community managers need to know how to identify influencers, pinpoint key topics, find collaboration hotspots, and teach individuals and groups how to improve their collaborative activity through behavioral analytics.

This webinar is about setting your community strategy, measuring success, and driving engagement in your employee community. Attendees walk away with a clear understanding of the important metrics in Workplace by Facebook, as well as simple, tactical day-to-day steps that every member can take to improve their collaboration habits.
