Pinboards or bulletin boards are a great way to share important announcements with employees. Thanks to pinboards, frequently requested information which is otherwise communicated verbally attains a visual component. Thus, relevant and usable information is easily accessible within the organization.
Pinboards are like instructional tools which help create a unique environment in the organization. On a higher level, they create a sense of community or social cohesion, as they give employees common subjects to talk about apart from work.
All this happens in the case of physical pinboards. What if pin-boards go digital?

CircleYard is a digital pinboard for organizations. With the pin-board concept going digital, CircleYard offers many advantages to tap
Digital pinboards create space for interaction. Individuals don’t just read the announcements or posts; they also engage in interactions. Employees in all locations can access the information and discuss any post. This is not possible with physical pin-boards. Only a digital pinboard can ensure that distributed locations don’t create a roadblock for interaction.
Physical pinboards or bulletin boards generally look messy and disorganized, with too much information to read and remember. CircleYard has different sections – like General, Marketplace, Housing, Hiring Now, Events, Q&A, Urgent, Survey, and Employee Recognition – under which posts can be shared. This makes information more organized and easier to access.
With physical pinboards, space becomes a big constraint. Old announcements must be removed to make space for the new. Because of this, nothing is left to reference in the future if the need arises. With CircleYard, old posts remain archived for future reference. The search option allows users to look for old information. Going digital also means that the interaction or discussion that took place about a post is archived and, thus, available for future reference.
Today most organizations are based in more than one location. Employees also have the option to work remotely. With CircleYard, employees in different locations can seamlessly access or post information in real time from their laptops, phones, or tablets. With email notifications, all employees in the organization will know when something has been posted. CircleYard allows users to seamlessly interact from anywhere, be it a conference, summit, discussion or party.
Pinboards provide information and expedite communication. Digital pin-boards like CircleYard not only keep employees informed but also serve a variety of purposes, thus providing more advantages for organizations.
