Investing in employee engagement is no luxury nowadays. According to a recent study by the Workplace Research Foundation, increasing employee engagement investments by just 10% can raise profits by $2,400 per employee, per year! Often, employee engagement starts with recognition of efforts. In large organizations, however, this can sometimes be a difficult task, seeing that there is almost no room for one-on-one dialogue. Digital communication tools can help in giving praise, even if it’s not face-to-face. But which digital communication tools are worth investing in?
Employee engagement does not stem from the occasional “Attaboy!”. It’s about specific and recurring recognition of efforts. In some cases, it may be more appropriate to praise someone privately for their efforts. However, public recognition can be a major motivational factor. Even for other employees.
Digital signage, for example, is an ideal tool to say ‘kudos’. Highly-visible messages on large screens throughout the company make sure staff members see each other’s achievements and get inspired to step it up a notch themselves.
Even when employees are behind their desks, they can get motivated. With the help of a corporate screensaver, you can reach everyone at their workstations with motivational news. On top of that, screensaver messages can contain clickable links so staff members can find out more about the achievements of their peers.
But why stop at reaching people inside corporate walls? With the aid of a corporate app, employees don’t even need to be present to receive praising messages. An app is the perfect tool to keep employees in the loop about accomplishments anytime, anywhere.
