An article from Fast Company titled, "Why Your Boss Should Care About How Many Friends You Have At Work"3, highlights Gallup and MIT's research which reports that the organizations that are most successful at integrating new employees are also the companies that help their new hires rapidly establish relationships with fellow coworkers.

When companies are successful at converting their employees’ untenable ties into the durable bonds shared by fast friends, they develop workplace cultures and communities that flourish.

How It Works

After downloading the Hang Local app and joining your private company group, employees set their interest preferences and whether or not they currently want to meet up with people from work.

Members have a social profile where they can choose to share a little more about their personality and interests.

When your employees want to hang out, they simply choose an activity they are interested in meeting up for. As a member of your corporate group, Hang Local For Work does the hard part of finding friends and co-workers nearby that they can invite to hang out.

Employees are presented with matches nearby and swipe to notify those which they are interested in meeting up with.

Those invited to hangout have the ability to reply and start chatting within the app to meet up or ignore the request all together.

With Hang Local For Work, your employees can link up with new friends from your company by inviting them for a mid-day coffee or a weekend night out in the city.
