Workplace by Facebook is the central hub for employee communication at St. Edward's. All faculty and staff can access the tool through myHilltop by logging in with their St. Edward's credentials. (Note: Students — including student workers — do not have access to Workplace.)
Not Just 'Work Facebook'
Workplace is a Facebook product, and anyone who has used Facebook certainly will be familiar with the interface. But Workplace itself is an entirely separate tool from Facebook. No accounts, passwords or data are shared between the two, and you don't need to have a personal Facebook to use Workplace.
Communication in WorkplaceWorkplace facilitates a number of types of communication, primarily through groups. As of now, the following groups will appear automatically for you upon logging in to Workplace:
- Campus News: Campus News is intended to communicate general information about what's happening at the university, including events, activities and projects.
- From President Martin: For major university announcements and initiatives, President George E. Martin will deliver special messages to employees.
- On-the-Job Updates: This feed provides timely tools, resources and guidance to support the employee experience.
- Training & Development: Human Resources, as well as other departments, offer a number of training and learning opportunities to employees throughout the year, and you can find listings in this group.
- In the News: Routinely, St. Edward's faculty and staff are highlighted in local and national news coverage for their expertise. This group collects and shares those stories.
- Kudos: This feed is intended to capture the wonderful work St. Edward's employees do — and the work they do for each other.
