Wisq, the first platform designed for the social connection needs of employees, today announced the launch of Lounges: spaces for coworkers to have spontaneous catch-ups and casual hang-outs – whether it’s with two people or a full team.

Wisq’s Lounges are a remedy to feelings of isolation at work, providing people with a fun, easy and impromptu way to get to know their colleagues and participate in quick interactions, no matter where they are working.

With Lounges, employees now have audio and chat spaces for real-time socializing within the Wisq platform. Lounges include both open and private spaces where people can invite others to join the conversation. Members of the same Wisq space can also casually drop into a live Lounge discussion via a Group, such as Hiking Enthusiasts, or through a “Happening Now” pop-up in their feed.

OneDirectory, a leading provider of modern employee directory software, today announced the launch of its new organizational chart tool for companies running on Microsoft 365. The new org chart gives people an easy way to view and navigate their company’s organizational structure, providing a complete view of their workforce from top to bottom, right within OneDirectory.

With a heavy focus on user experience, OneDirectory’s new org chart helps people navigate and visualize their company’s organizational structure in a fun, visual way. Users can change orientation, zoom, pan, scroll, expand nodes, highlight reporting lines, choose dynamic starting points, and download or print the org chart.

The new release also introduces dynamic office and departmental org charts, which is just one way that OneDirectory is bringing new innovations to the space. “We found that other org chart tools are too rigid in the way they present office and departmental data since they assume your company’s structure is perfect. But your organizational structure is dynamic and is probably a little bit messy, and your org chart tool needs to adapt to that reality,” says Bennett.

YOOBIC, the innovator of the all-in-one Frontline Employee Experience Platform, today announced the launch of YOOBIC Communities, a powerful expansion of the YOOBIC app designed to enable companies with frontline workers to drive engagement and give employees a shared space to build collaboration, camaraderie, and a sense of common purpose. The feature launch cements YOOBIC’s place as the premiere Frontline Employee Experience Platform (FEXP) for today’s most demanding distributed enterprises. 

Their mobile app is already trusted by 350 global brands including top retailers and restaurants such as Levi’s, francesca’s, Lacoste, Boots, BurgerFi, and Lidl. The Communities feature empowers frontline teams to easily create common-interest networks and design and launch their own micro-communities within the organization. The result: organic team building based on meaningful friendships and rich new opportunities for mutual support, collaboration, and innovation. 

YOOBIC Communities is an engagement-driving tool for a generation of digital-native workers raised on social media. The results have been striking. In the Beta test group, weekly logins increased by 33% per user. Employees were also markedly more involved with the platform: Communities drove 43% more engagement than the top-down digital Newsfeed, which already was achieving great results. These numbers show targeted engagement and employee experience are drivers in adoption and usage of digital tools for frontline workers.
