Employing over 3,200 people (90% in locations across Australia and New Zealand), HOYTS didn’t have an easy way for everyone to communicate and share their ideas. Employing mostly part-time, cinema-based crew members, we were relying on our cinema managers to relay important information.

We were looking for a platform that made communication easy and organic. Many of our cinema employees are millennials and well-versed in social media, so we decided to test Workplace by Facebook.

Workplace was a hit with our younger workforce and brought together our 51 cinemas and support offices. It was so successful Facebook used us as a case study. We measured our staff usage and engagement using Workplace’s reporting suite.
