Why HyperloopTT uses the Facebook workplace for team communications


With a dispersed workforce employed largely part-time, Hyperloop Transportation Technologies faces some unusual challenges, as it seeks to revolutionize mass transportation with a “crowd-driven” organizational model.

One of the biggest challenges is making sure that all of the more than 800 members of the company’s team can collaborate effectively in the design and launch of Hyperloop technology.

“When we started, we worked with different tools, some of the teams used Slack, others used Google Docs, and we let everyone discover what they liked best,” said HyperloopTT founder and president Dirk Ahlborn. “Now, for several years, we have consolidated everything and moved to Workplace.”

The company, which was created in 2013, still uses Google Docs along with Workplace. But Slack is no longer a primary tool for collaboration and communication.

A key reason to select Workplace is that it offers a combination of instant messaging, social capabilities and file sharing. That combo has helped strengthen the sense of community among workers and has allowed employees to work together more effectively, said Ahlborn.
