“The workplace of the future will be distributed, which means organizations must create new workflows that keep their employees informed, engaged, and connected,” said Gretchen Alarcon, VP and GM, HR Service Delivery at ServiceNow. “We’re thrilled to partner with Workplace from Facebook to help our mutual customers break down silos, boost productivity, and ultimately deliver great employee experiences.”

ServiceNow and Workplace already work with some of the biggest and most respected companies around the world. Together, the companies serve customers across all industries, including Sun Life Financial, Telenor Group and Petco.

“We’ve been long-time users of Workplace and ServiceNow separately so we’re thrilled to hear about their deeper partnership,” said Barbara J. Mitchell, AVP, Service Management Experience at Sun Life Financial. “We look forward to using their new integrations to streamline communications, automate internal processes, and ultimately help enhance our employee experience.”

A study by MIT shows that companies delivering on employee experience can double customer satisfaction and increase profitability by 25%. For employees – both those in desk-based roles and on the frontlines – IT tools must be consumer-grade: easy to use, integrated, and omnichannel.

“ServiceNow is a formidable brand that we are honored to deepen our partnership with. Together, we are uniquely positioned to bring best-in-class technology to every single employee within an organization, regardless of where or how they work,” said Workplace from Facebook Vice President, Julien Codorniou. “As global companies navigate a new normal and become increasingly decentralized, digital tools that bridge the communication gap beyond just the HQ will be imperative to their success. This is especially important for deskless, or frontline, employees who make up 80% of the world’s working population. I’m excited that our combined efforts will serve this crucial group of employees more seamlessly and will enable Workplace to enter the automation and productivity space – something we believe is a game changer for all of our customers.”

The pandemic has proven that proper communications to employees must be a coordinated effort between all departments. IT, HR and workplace services leaders can no longer work in silos and must invest in integrated technology to foster an inclusive, connected, and more productive organization.

“Employee experience, workforce transformation and employee wellbeing are top priorities for businesses going into 2021,” said global independent analyst Josh Bersin of the Josh Bersin Academy. “But this can only be achieved when IT, communications and HR work seamlessly together. Together, ServiceNow and Workplace from Facebook are providing the digital tools required to bridge the gap between collaboration and productivity that will be crucial for distributed workforces and frontline workers in the years ahead.”
