Message from the developer

Welcome to all users of WorkGob.

When establishing WorkGob, I wanted to provide a communications platform that offered great communications systems and accomplished several other criteria.

  • There had to be the ability to use it for free.
  • It had to be easy for anyone to join and use.
  • It had to have an easy to follow communications process.
  • It had to be inclusive, multi-directional communication, with the ability of company management to make priority messages.

 

Hopefully with WorkGob, we have accomplished those points. This is a personal project, and I would be delighted to get feedback and recommendations of how to improve the service, and indeed other functionality requests. Therefore, please use the Contact the Developer option in the main menu, to message me your thoughts and suggestions.
