What Is An Employee Marketplace?
An employee marketplace is a local online e-commerce marketplace made up of company employees. Think of it like Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist, but within the office and exclusively for coworkers to buy, sell, trade, and barter. Employee marketplaces are a great way for workers to find deals, share interests, and get to know each other in a fun and informal environment.
Reaching Out To Everyone
Without a centralized space to easily access information, it’s difficult for any kind of employee marketplace to thrive. Marketplaces depend on coworkers being able to share items for sale, offer services, and communicate easily with each other. But bulletin board flyers, break room messages, emails, and word of mouth communication are naturally limited in scope, easy to miss, and often just add to existing clutter.
A Centralized Space To Share
With MangoApps, employees have a location-specific communication and collaboration platform perfect for sharing all kinds of marketplace items. Digital classifieds make it easy for employees is see, share, and communicate with each other about sales items or services no matter their work schedule or office role, while still keeping communication local and ensuring transactions stay simple.
Location-based groups in MangoApps let users post sale items or potential services right into the news feed, where coworkers can clearly see photos and descriptions and ask questions in a visually appealing comments area. Whether you’re selling an old movie collection, looking for a new babysitter, or advertising your weekend dog walking services, employee marketplaces are made for straightforward connection and communication.
Groups even make messaging employees easy with private chats built right into the platform. Coworkers interested in a product or service can easily send a message to learn more about a product or arrange sales details without having to track down contact information. And because MangoApps is accessible on any kind of internet-enabled device, employees can browse deals or communicate with each other at any time.
How To Make Location-Based Groups:
Location-based groups can connect together and make event and party planning easy. To create location-based groups, first, ensure the module is enabled in your platform.
Once location-based groups have been enabled, just add the different areas you’d like groups created for.
Once you’ve saved your existing locations, employees will automatically be filtered into the appropriate group based on the location listed on the employee profile.
Your location groups are now ready to go. You and other employees can begin posting content, uploading files, creating wikis, and enjoying everything else groups have to offer.
