“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”
—George Bernard Shaw

 

Tired of feeling “out of the loop?” Are you ready to feel connected like never before? Workplace is here to help.

 

What is Workplace?

Klein ISD is officially adopting Workplace as a new FREE tool for internal communications.

We are so excited to adopt Workplace as a new tool for internal communications in Klein ISD. Workplace is an easy-to-use collaboration platform built to break down silos. With Workplace, we can discuss projects, share organization-wide updates, and instantly communicate with colleagues from across the district. Best of all…we can reduce the number of emails we all get!

Why do we need Workplace?

Workplace makes it easier to communicate with colleagues via chat, groups, and posts. It connects everyone in our district and is easy to use on the go via your mobile device. It requires very little training. If you’ve ever had a Facebook account, then you will know how to use Workplace!

According to a teacher survey conducted as part of the August 2017 Communications Audit, staff members feel disconnected from what’s happening across the district. Especially when it comes to campus to campus communication and communication from the district office. This is the problem Workplace is meant to solve.

Feedback from the Communications Audit

“Communication from campus to campus is very limited and so is communication from Principals to staff. I would like to see more open communication between leaders and their staff.” (Teacher Survey)

“[There is a] lack of communication about department/district norms.” (Teacher Survey)

“We teachers at the schools feel unbelievably out of the loop and often are getting last-minute information that could have been delivered earlier.” (Teacher Survey)

“[There is a lack of] communication between departments at the district level.” (Teacher Survey)

“Strengthen the lines of communication all the way down.” (Teacher Survey)

 

How much does Workplace cost the district?

Zilch. Nada. Nothing. Zero. $0. This amazing communication tool is absolutely FREE to Klein ISD as an educational institution! Click Here for more information about the Workplace for Good Program.

 

Is Workplace secure? Is it connected to my personal Facebook?

Your Workplace account is separate from your personal Facebook account. There is no link between the two accounts, and you have full control over what you share on each account.

 

What tools does Workplace replace?

Groups allow you to post updates to all of your colleagues quickly and easily. It will allow us to enhance cross-team collaboration, provide a place to provide feedback, and speed up decision making. Join the groups that are most important to your team or your role to ensure you are always up to date.

The Workplace News Feed gathers conversations from all your groups so that you’ll never miss an update or comments from your closest co-workers.

Work Chat allows you to have 1-1 text and video conversations and conversations with larger groups of people.
