The Society for Human Resource Management states that having a social feed for your organization “allows employees to discuss ideas, post news, ask questions and share links. (It) promotes diversity and inclusion, and… reinforces organizational culture, or (can) change that culture through communication.
Tip: At Playvox, Feed is another term for the Community wall.
If you have enabled the Community wall, everyone from the CEO to the agents may engage in this platform-wide, workplace social feed. User privileges on the community wall, however, can be restricted. Check out this article to read about Community Permissions.
