Yes Bank has partnered with Facebook at Work to roll out the platform to all its 15,000+ employees. It is the first Indian bank to implement Facebook at Work for its employees. The platform was launched last year by Facebook as a social network, dedicated to professionals.
Facebook at Work is a business version of Facebook that allows companies to build more productive, efficient and collaborative workplaces. It is easy-to-use, secure and available on desktop and mobile devices.
Facebook at Work has a look and feel similar to that of Facebook, therefore making it easier for employees to leverage the features to increase productivity and communication among multiple teams.
Speaking on the launch, Mr. Rana Kapoor, Managing Director & CEO of Yes Bank, said,
YES BANK has been a pioneer in adoption of technology as well as on Social media channels. Collaboration and exchange of ideas at the workplace is the key to drive motivation, and Facebook at Work is a powerful platform which allows every YES BANKer to visualize, strategize and actualize in a collaborative environment.
Yes Bank will be using the Facebook at Work solution to improve the communication flow within the organization thereby helping to increase the agility in business-critical decision making as well as strengthening the working relationships and engagement across multiple teams in the bank.
In line with its Design Driven organizational structure, Yes Bank has always placed immense emphasis on strong ‘Internal Communication’.
Facebook at Work provides a simple and innovative way to increase productivity, foster employee engagement and enable all employees within the Bank to be focussed on executing the bank’s mission and vision.
Facebook has launched Facebook at Work with an aim to bring its social network as a collaboration tool for business enterprises and companies. This puts it in direct competition with already existing similar services such as Microsoft’s Yammer, Slack, Convo, Socialcast, etc.
