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?

Listen as 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, share practical solutions for the most common barriers that prevent hourly workers from participating on Workplace.
