Workplace for Good

Workplace for Good

We create the tools. Charities create the impact.

Workplace for Good is a new tool that connects everyone in your organisation and enables them to turn ideas into action. Through voice and video calling, group discussion and a personalised News Feed, you can work together and get more done. Workplace for Good is free for all charities.

About

Workplace for Good is a tool for consolidating your organisation’s communication and collaboration in one place. Workplace for Good is separate from your personal Facebook account, but takes advantage of all of the features that we’ve built for Facebook – internal groups, multi-company groups, News Feed, Work Chat, live video, search, file sharing and activity reports.
