OfficeAccord powers Harvard's employee digital bulletin board

Let’s be honest. Not all of our conversations at work are business related. We also look to our colleagues for advice, participation, and help with matters outside of the office. Progressive organizations like Harvard University understand that fostering meaningful human connections with your colleagues enhances community and makes for a more happy and productive workforce.  To aid in this effort, Harvard uses OfficeAccord to power their employee digital bulletin board they call HARVie’s Classifieds.  

“OfficeAccord has been an excellent solution and partner,” says Esther Vegh, Associate Director of HR Communications.
