Jostle does more than Workplace by Facebook

What do you really need in an employee intranet?

Workplacea repurposed social network

Facebook is optimized to maximize time on site and entertain you in the moment; things not well aligned with a great intranet. Enterprise Social Networks have been tried before and consistently failed. People are at work and need a quieter, more purposeful approach.

Jostlean easy to use employee intranet

A full-featured intranet designed from the ground up to connect your organization. Like Workplace, Jostle is easy to implement and use. Our work-relevant approach not only makes communication happen, it also helps employees quickly find what they need.

“I think the Jostle® intranet has changed the way we interact. It’s definitely brought the organization closer together.”
