Workplace in action at Makro
Dutch wholesaler Makro is an organization with 3500 employees in 17 stores throughout The Netherlands. Only 500 employees work at the head office, the majority works in the stores. Makro was looking for a new way to connect and reach all employees, with special attention for the deskless workforce in the stores.
NextNovate implemented Workplace from Facebook at Makro. Thanks to Workplace, all Makro employees now can connect and communicate in an easy way. Because Workplace is based on well-known social media platforms, it feels familiar to all employees from the start.
