Crowdsource and develop ideas by collaborating with external consultants

Miroglio, an Italian high fashion retailer, wanted to create a channel to conduct design-related discussions not only with their employees but also with their external design consultants. They leveraged a Workplace group to enable this collaboration. The group acts as an e-learning platform led by the external consultant to crowdsource, share, and develop ideas about designs and provide inspiration to employees.

A multi-company group (MCG) best serves this need today by allowing external parties to join only a specific group with a company’s employees. However, as an early adopter of Workplace, Miroglio did not have a multi-company group available to them. Therefore, they onboarded the external consultant on their own Workplace to facilitate this collaboration, highlighting the importance of fulfilling this need.

How to do it in your company in three simple steps:

  1. Create a multi-company group (MCG) and invite external consultants as well as employees to this group
  2. Make a pinned post on this group to explain the group’s purpose, e.g, sharing of ideas, etc.
  3. Encourage all members to regularly share in the MCG so the community can continue to generate ideas for everyone
