If you need to share information inside the European Commission, where do you go?
Increasingly, the answer is the online network set up in 2009 using the Yammer enterprise microblogging platform. The Commission’s Yammer network now connects over 5000 staff across the organisation.

Commission Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič has used the platform to chat live with staff about organisational reforms.
