Meta is sunsetting workplace: What you need to know and why Flip is the best alternative

Meta is discontinuing its communication platform, Workplace, to focus on AI and the metaverse. Learn what this means for you and why Flip is the best alternative for keeping your team connected.

The end of Workplace: What it means for your business

On 15 May 2024, Meta announced the closure of Workplace, its enterprise communication platform. This move has left many businesses scrambling to find a new solution to meet their employee engagement needs.

For customers relying on Workplace, this means an urgent — and unexpected — need to switch to a new provider. While Meta has suggested WorkVivo as an alternative, it's important to note that this recommendation is based on a partnership rather than genuine business needs. Now is the time to evaluate what your team truly needs before making the switch.

Workplace closure: Key dates and timeline

Meta’s plan to sunset Workplace involves a phased shutdown, giving you time to transition to a new platform. Here are the critical dates you need to know:

  • Until 31 August 2025: Workplace will continue to operate as usual.
  • From 1 September 2025: Users will be restricted to read-only access.
  • On 1 June 2026: The service will shut down entirely — make sure to back up your data before this date!

By understanding these key dates, businesses can better plan their migration to a new platform, ensuring a smooth and efficient transition for employees.
