Meta to Discontinue Workplace: Welcome a future-proof alternative

Written by
David Kelly

Earlier this month, Meta announced the discontinuation of Workplace, its enterprise communications platform launched in 2016. The service will continue in a read-only mode until May 2026, following its official cessation in September 2025. This decision impacts approximately 7 million users, who are now directed towards partner-recommended alternatives that may not be a perfect fit for every organisation. 

This transition therefore presents a much needed opportunity for businesses to rethink and innovate their internal communications strategies for the future.

Navigating Change in a Rapidly Evolving Industry

The discontinuation of Workplace is just another example of the rapid evolution within the enterprise communications sector. Change is often costly and disruptive, prompting the question: how can businesses future-proof their operations? 

Leaders must prioritise effective communication, impactful change management, and ongoing employee engagement. Simply side stepping to another messaging platform may not be the optimal solution.

HR leaders in particular are operating in challenging times. Many organisations are struggling to keep pace with the macro shifts in the external environment and in particular the pace of technological development impacting how they operate, are structured, drive value and – in many cases – even survive. We are living and working in an era of constant change.

What if we instead looked to integrate our existing technology, rather than side step to a like for like comms platform? Instead we left room for the future, enabling the ability to evolve and reform, hassle free! Organise, centralise and personalise. 

The stats speak for themselves:

Deloitte reports that integrating workplace platforms with other business tools can streamline processes, reducing project completion times by 30%. (Deloitte)

Better yet, Employees save an average of 8 hours per week by using collaboration tools that streamline communication and project management (TechRepublic).

Business’s face the challenge of digital overload or better known as digital fatigue, employees are jumping through hoops to access the correct resources and tools at the right time. This constant switching was found to result in a 40% reduction in overall productivity (American Psychological Association). 

What does this tell us? It’s time to cut down the noise, listen and deliver. 

Embracing a New Vision for Workplace Communication

Now is the time to envision a more comprehensive and adaptable solution. Imagine if employees could design their own workplace communication tools.
