Share news, announcements, and updates


Posts are blog posts, company memos, newsletter, weekly updates, and more. Posts are typically published once and rarely edited later. The content is typically timely, and relevancy of the content decreases over time. As posts are much easier to create, share, and reach employees anywhere, they often replace mass emails, printed flyers, internal mail, etc. In addition, the digital nature of posts inherently encourages employee engagement via social actions such as comments, reactions, sharing, and analytics.
