By introducing Facebook at Work to more than 35,000 Telenor employees located around the world, the company aims to remove barriers to collaboration and introduce a state-of-the-art tool for knowledge sharing, collaboration and teamwork. The aim is for a more open and connected Telenor, where teams can organize, email overload is reduced and collaboration is conducted on any device.

“To be a truly digital company, our employees need to have a digital mindset. And that means having best practice collaboration tools at our disposal. I believe that Facebook at Work is one of those tools, enabling new ways of working together and stimulating engagement across the organization,” said Sigve Brekke.

Telenor was an early pilot tester of Facebook at Work, largely due to the company’s strong partner relationship with Facebook.

“The workplace is in transformation. Employees today seek tools for collaboration that they know and use in their daily lives. We’re excited that Facebook at Work will give employees the flexibility to engage with each other from any device, from anywhere in the world, ultimately leading to an even more productive and connected Telenor,” said Sean Ryan, VP of Platform Partnerships and Head of Facebook at Work.
