Groups is a very powerful communication and collaboration tool in Ziik. Groups can be used company wide, locally or for team communication. You can activate automatic memberships in groups to ensure that new employees are automatically enrolled in their groups based on their role and workplace.



All Employees

We recommend that you create a global group for all your employees. This is a group where every single employee can make posts, share messages, pictures and videos and where people can like and make comments.

Group for your Managers

These are the first people that you will onboard and you a place where you managers can meet, exchange information and updates. Depending of the size of your company and your communication needs at this level this could be one or more groups.

Local Groups
