Happeo is the home for all We Are Group’s information
We Are Group is a restaurant company that currently has 12 restaurants in Helsinki. In 2020, the company expanded overseas when Sushibar+Wine opened two restaurants in Oslo. The company’s personnel, numbering over 100, use Happeo for their internal communications, ensuring that information is communicated conveniently to everyone. We Are Group worked with Gapps to create a solution around Happeo that was customised to meet the company’s needs.
The 12 restaurants operate on five different concepts. We Are Group’s restaurant concepts are Sushibar+Wine, Story, Bar Cón, Vin-Vin and Bier-Bier. “It is our goal to make our friends’ lives more enjoyable,” says Kaisa Laulajainen, Director of Restaurant Operations at the Sushibar+Wine restaurants.
Personalised platform offers solutions for communication needs
The need to introduce Happeo arose from the internal communication challenges posed by the increasing number of employees. “We had 100 employees but no shared communication platform for them to discuss things, look for contact details, or otherwise work out who is who,” says Alli Tommiska, Digital Marketing Manager.
“We worked with Gapps to create a solution that is suitable for us. We tailored the package to our needs. We now have solutions for the work of managers and staff. Happeo is a personalised platform for us – the home of all our information. It contains permanent information, as well as a discussion platform,” says Laulajainen.
Happeo makes everyday work easier.
Tommiska describes Happeo as We Are Group’s internal social media channel, which makes it easy to communicate all announcements and similar matters. You can put information in one place for the right group of people to read.
“For example, we publish our work shift plans there. Staff can then communicate on matters such as swapping shifts,” Laulajainen says.
“Any employee can set up their own group and either invite the desired people to join or make it visible to everyone. For example, Kaisa and I are in a sport group, and we participated in the Midnight Run event together,” Tommiska smiles.
When it comes to cooperation with Gapps, the biggest thing is how much easier our communication has become thanks to these services.
