Launching Workplace insights. A new way to understand your company

Insights helps you discover how people are using Workplace. Drill into the data and explore new ways to connect your organisation.


Measuring the relationship between a connected culture and company performance can be challenging. But we think it all starts with having access to the right data. And while Workplace already allows admins to track adoption and retention, we want it to do more.

Untangle work with Workplace

From informing everyone about the return to the office to adopting a hybrid way of working, Workplace makes work more simple.

And with brand new Insights, now it does.

Insights is a new section of the Workplace Admin Panel that gives your organisation the tools it needs to track and measure Workplace usage. You can use Insights to follow employee sentiment, trends within groups, post-level activity and more.

Workplace Admins can now access five different tabs to explore dashboards and visualise data on the ways people are using Workplace across their organisation.

  • People. Track how active your organisation is on Workplace. Visualise how many invited employees have joined, how many are active, and which apps or platforms they’re using the most
  • Content. Understand how much content your organisation is creating, how many people are actively contributing, and who your top contributors are
  • Groups. Explore data on group creation, settings and your most active groups
  • Posts. Machine learning provides sentiment analysis on individual posts. Find data on the consumption of posts over time and total post consumption
  • Connections. Identify where collaboration is happening on Workplace based on the interactions between people

These employee insights can bring enormous benefits to business leaders in all parts of an organisation. The communication professional who can use employee sentiment trends to improve their messaging. The HR team that can visualise engagement metrics over time to grow and develop company culture. And the IT leader who can use analytics to track how active their population is on Workplace and create strategies to improve adoption. Here are some examples.

Communications professionals are using Insights to understand employee sentiment and how people are reacting to company-wide or group comms. How many people have read your post? How do they feel about it? These employee sentiment metrics can help you identify the content that’s resonating with people so you can create more of it.

Insights enables you to identify the parts of your organisation that are contributing the most and understand why.
