Declan K.

Another form of communication to add to the rest

2021-05-05

While I am aware staff engagement is the objective, the constant updates of activities of other sections and departments feels like over kill.

Pros

It was easy to down load, and access. The transition from one section to another is good.

Cons

I added my work email to notifications and get numerous emails every day.

Workvivo Feedback

2021-01-28

Our annual VMworld conference had a dedicated space in the platform which saw huge engagement where lots of great conversations, feedback and competitions were run within.

Pros

From the sleek new UI, to the New Search Experience, threaded comments and the email digest options there are so many great features along with the many great integrations we have in place (Workday, Slack, Azure AD and much more).

Cons

Mobile Parity with the Desktop experience would be great to see.

Awesome Employee Engagement tool

2021-04-28

One of my favorites is the live stream function, which allows all users to view and or participate in a virtual meeting in real time.

Pros

They are in constant contact and always give helpful suggestions on how to enhance the tool and create buy in.

Cons

They have been making enhancements but there is only more of a high level reporting function to see total views, or users using the product, you are not able to see who view each article or have them sign off they have viewed it.

2021-05-03

Very positive, can do approach - extremely responsive to questions, and issues (from our side) and supportive. in providing materials and suggestions to us, on how best to launch, gain best engagement, and ongoing traction in Workvivo. An important and high profile project for UBC to support all of our employees, and business functions, our new communications and engagement platform - will support us to continue to facilitate our transformation programme, and build a closer UBC community across all functional areas, and employee locations. Thanks Workvivo Team, !

Pros

One product providing a broad offering to support UBC communication, engagement and recognition. The look of the products, and ability to tailor, brand as needed.

Cons

I cannot recall anything we have not liked

Workvivo

2021-05-05

Pros

Pretty slick interface, works well across different platforms.

Connecting people

2021-05-10

Very good.

Pros

It includes staff outside the three core office locations, i.e. staff in other government deaprtments and the survey field staff. Great to include photos, vidoes, links etc.

Cons

At the beginning, I was getting notifications for everything!

Easy to use and packed with great features

2021-04-29

Pros

The functionality is well bundled and really encompasses the elements of a mobile engagement platform that you might want.

Cons

Most of our users are mobile so the app is primary content delivery route. Credit to the team at Workvivo though they clearly listen to customer feedback and a recent upgrade to the mobile app has seen many of those inconsistencies addressed and even this week another item from the "wishlist" of features has been added to the App.

review for workvivo

2021-04-29

We have been able to better gauge how employees are feeling about their jobs and their overall experience with our company.

Pros

Keeping the team connected, sharing experiences and projects. Getting to know each other.

Cons

i go back and forth between the mobile app and my desk top and I think that causes some glitches. on the mobile, I might see a notification but them I dont see anything.

Great product, excellent support

2021-01-21

Also using for recognition, social interaction and news sharing.

Pros

Workvivo is an engaging design, simple to use for users and extremely accessible and simple back end.

Cons

I would like more functionality as an editor - eg the ability to correct or move others posts. Formatting (html?) within posts can be slightly glitchy and hard to get right. Otherwise I am in the main very happy with the product.

Changed the way our Company communicates- in the best possible way!

2021-01-12

It's also really helped bridge any communication gaps that Remote working due to Covid-19 may have caused.

Pros

It's fun, it's easy and it's an effective way of communicating important messages throughout the company while also giving employees an opportunity to showcase their personality.

Cons

The app at times can be glitchy but it's just as easy to use the browser in those situations so it has never inhibited me from doing something that needed to be done e.g. exporting survey results to excel.

Workvivo

2021-04-22

It's been great! Super user-friendly, visually pleasing, and great customer service. It serves its purpose in a fun and modern way.

Pros

It also allows for more casual content and gives every employee a voice and chance to engage with one another.

Cons

And we wish "Apps" was called something else like "Links" because they're not applications, they're all links to websites on our version of WV.

Highly recommended - Professional, progressive, with excellent customer service

2021-01-13

Very professional with excellent customer support. They are continually investing in and developing the platform making improvements based on customer feedback.

Pros

We've solved the problem of reaching employees on the frontline, with no computer access. We can now communicate faster, more efficiently, using the Workvivo app which is critical during the current pandemic!

Cons

There's nothing I don't like, but there are some minor constraints as to what you can do, with some feature limitations, like direct messaging. However Workvivo are continually expanding and adding to the list of features monthly, so it's improving all the time.

Like Facebook, but for a business.

2021-02-05

It's a very useful tool to use when working within a company, as it provides a one-stop-shop for all internal communications & notifications as well as being able to see what other colleagues are doing during these lockdown times (when everyone misses talking in the office).

Pros

Shouts-ours are a particularly rewarding feature, and encourages teams to give kudos for excellent work.

Cons

It reminds me a lot of Facebook (which, personally, I stopped using over a year ago), but that isn't a gripe with the product as such - more my own feelings on social media.

Fantastic employee communication platform

2021-05-04

Our employee engagement since lockdown began has been so much easier through the platform and now I can't imagine work life without it!

Pros

We've seen great engagement success with live streamed events, competitions and when sharing important business updates.

Cons

The only feature we'd love to see added is different reactions rather that just the 'heart'.

Excellent Tool!

2021-01-12

Pros

We at Spearline know that effective communication is a vital tool for any business and even more so during these unprecedented times which is what made our decision to work with Workvivo an easy one!

Cons

Hand on heart, there isn't anything that I could point out that I don't like about Workvivo. It has even allowed us to free up our inboxes by using Workvivo for announcements instead of emails - all positives!
