Yammer Time

Last year, we at Z2 began searching for a better way to communicate internally. We were using iChat to communicate one-on-one (and still do) and of course were sending out the traditional company-wide emails, but we were looking for something more interactive—and fun. We soon discovered the joys of Yammer.

Yammer is kind of like a social network for businesses—think of it as one main Facebook wall in which everyone can post. You can even download a Yammer App on your smart phone to get updates when you’re away from your computer, if you so choose. The program works perfectly for a smaller office, like ours. It keeps us all on the same page in terms of meetings, schedules, client news, and more.

The ‘more’ typically includes things like photos of our pets, YouTube videos, funny quotes from co-workers, etc. One example, below.

If you’re a small business and looking for a new way to foster internal communication, we suggest you check out Yammer.
