Empxtrack offers a social platform to make important announcements and post feeds. Social Feed allows employees to view updates on Rewards, Work Anniversaries, Birthdays, Promotion and New Joinees.
Through Social Feed, employees can make a public announcement or add a feed about themselves or others. Each feed goes through an approval process. This gives a platform to employees to encourage interactions and boosts employee engagement.
