Employee Engagement in Office42

You don’t have to force Office42 on your employees, as the adoption will happen naturally and relatively quickly, thanks to the social intranet’s employee management tools. When your employees log into Office42 for the first time, they will instantly recognize the Activity Stream, which is much like the news feed of Facebook, LinkedIn or Trwitter.  A series of short videos explain what productivity tools come with Office42’s enterprise social network and how each of them works for each employee who is starting to use Office42. Likes, mentions, following, sharing, messaging, comments, timelines and tags all use conventional social networking logic and have familiar looks.
