Ever wondered why HRs try so hard to build a sense of togetherness among the employees? It's a proven fact that everyone performs the best in a familiar setting. No matter how introverted one can be. By very nature, all humans are social beings to some level.

Smooth internal communications and fostering a feeling of community among employees are more important than ever in today's hectic corporate environment. Working in silos is becoming a thing of the past. All types of companies understand the importance of developing closer relationships with their staff, and one of the best approaches to achieve this is by creating an online community.

A few major benefits of running an exclusive internal community.

Enter Wylo, a comprehensive and customizable community-building platform designed to transform the way companies build communities and engage with their teams. With Wylo, you can choose the features you want to run your community, and the best part - you just have to pay for what you choose.

With a full range of powerful features including custom branding, event hosting, forums, discussion channels, and more, Wylo has everything companies need to improve internal communication and build a vibrant online community. Put otherwise, an active virtual workstation.


Use cases of an internal community


Forums for brainstorming & collaboration

Forums user interface of an internal community built using Wylo, showing thriving discussions among members.

The forum function of Wylo will act as an online meeting place for group conversations and information exchange. You can set up specific channels for various teams, initiatives, divisions, or even interests and pastimes. By facilitating questioning, advice-giving, and insight-sharing among staff members, these channels help to dismantle departmental silos and promote cross-functional cooperation.


Detailed posts for in-depth conversations

Having lengthy discussions takes more than a quick exchange of messages via Teams or Zoom. Through Wylo's detailed channels, staff members can explore subjects, exchange in-depth knowledge, and come up with ideas for solutions together. You can make in-depth postings in your community that include rich media, such as videos, images, embeds, etc. This enables your team members to freely and candidly discuss extensive ideas.


Restricted access for confidentiality

Not every discussion has to be accessible to all participants. Wylo provides restricted access to everything within your community because we recognize the value of privacy. You can set up a part of forums, chats, resources, etc. as private as you want. So only the members with access can check them out.


Event hosting for standups and team meetings

Events listed chronologically within the events tab of an internal community created using Wylo.

With its event hosting capability, Wylo takes virtual events to a new level. With the platform, you can easily plan and manage events of any kind, including webinars, workshops, daily stand-ups, and scrum calls. This increases participation and boosts engagement, turning virtual events into worthwhile occasions for education, networking, and good times.


Chat for staying on top of the communication

Chat allows you to communicate more effectively than ever before. You can have Community conversations and DMs with Wylo. While Discord-level chats, or community chats, allow you to message a large group of people at once, direct messages allow you to message individual team members and give a personal touch.


Collections: Sharing resources and announcements

Important resources curated in collections, a feature within an internal community created using Wylo.

As a company, you would wish to provide your staff with a wealth of useful materials. You can build and arrange all of your resources, vital connections, and materials related to your business and product with Wylo's collections. In this way, your employees or members will have access to all the information they need about your business in one convenient location.


Custom branding for a branded experience

Interface for customizing community settings on Wylo, including options to change the community name, description, cover image, logo, custom domain, and more.

Establishing a solid company identity requires consistent branding. With Wylo, you can add your logo, themes, and even your custom domain to your community to provide a recognizable and engaging work environment for your staff. Your peers will feel more like a part of a real community - thanks to this personal touch.


Benefits of running an internal community

Now that we've explored the individual features, let's dive into how Wylo can be harnessed to build a robust internal community.

  • Innovation and Ideation: Dedicated discussion channels can become a breeding ground for innovative ideas. Employees from different departments can collaborate to brainstorm solutions, leading to fresh perspectives and out-of-the-box thinking.

  • Knowledge sharing and learning: By running a community using Wylo, you can share industry insights, best practices, and learning resources over forums, collections, and courses. This encourages employees to continuously upskill and stay informed about the latest trends, fostering growth.

  • Project collaboration: Wylo allows project teams to build admin-only and open channels dedicated to their work. Centralizing project-related conversations, updates, and paperwork, reduces the likelihood of misunderstandings and guarantees that everyone is on the same page.

  • Company announcements and updates: Important company announcements can be made through restricted channels, guaranteeing that all staff members are informed on time of any modifications. This gets rid of the information lag that big businesses frequently have.

  • Networking and beyond work: Beyond work-related discussions, Wylo can also cater to employees' personal interests. Whether it's a book club or a fitness group, creating channels for hobbies fosters deeper connections among employees beyond their job roles.

  • Virtual town halls and Q&A sessions: Features for event hosting make it possible for staff members to communicate with leadership in real-time during smooth virtual town halls and calls. Q&A sessions become more effective and inclusive, enabling remote workers to participate just as actively as those based in the offline.

  • Feedback and improvement: Wylo is capable of acting as an ongoing feedback loop. By providing specific avenues for employees to submit ideas and criticism over polls, the organization can efficiently adapt to their needs and make sure their voices are heard.
