During the pandemic, technology has been a life saver. Software such as, Zoom has enabled companies to continue communicating with their network and has acted as a life vest to keep the day to day running of businesses afloat.
However, it’s important for businesses to remember that below the water lies their employee’s fundamental needs that contribute to their success at work - morale, motivation, development, engagement with your business etc. These are essential in sustaining a successful business but can easily become neglected when more important matters (like a global pandemic) come up – if enough needs get neglected it’s like a life vest without the air – redundant. That’s where we come in.
We create technology and communication solutions that take care of your employees and act as your businesses’ life vest. We get to the core of what boosts their morale, what motivates them and what keeps them engaged so they perform to their best potential. In 2020, one of our client’s app solutions had an average of 80% of the network registered and engaged (over 5,100 users that are logging in and engaging with the app each month), which meant that throughout the heights of the pandemic, we could easily communicate and engage with 80% of their employees with a few clicks of a button.
Having access to fast communication like this can be integral to your employees morale, performance and thus, your businesses’ success – especially when a lot of your team are working from home. As we navigate this digital world, it’s important not to overlook recognising and appreciating employees in a personal way. As you can no longer walk over to their desk, don’t forget to pick up the phone!
Once you’re afloat and out of rocky waters, you need to push further and get ashore – you can’t reach your full potential in the ocean (unfortunately we’re not mermaids). Once you have a workforce who are happy, thriving and connected, you then need to consider how to reward them and how to push them to improve their performance further – this can be achieved through sales incentives and events.
Over the past year, virtual events have taken on a whole new realm and have proven to the industry that you can create impactful and meaningful events and experiences via technology. Although we’re sure everyone will jump at the chance to get back to face to face events and incentive travel trips as soon as we can, virtual activities such as a cocktail classes and group cooking lessons have been greatly received by our clients and their employees and are excellent ways to reward and engage employees working remotely – whether it’s due to the pandemic or not. Don’t expect everyone to always join in and remember individual needs. By doing a variety of different things, you should end up hitting people’s interest more than once in a month.
We need to appreciate the pros of going virtual – more budget friendly, less admin, more accessible – and consider this when we’re planning events in the new norm of the industry. We can help co-create a great experience with your employees not for them. Our approach will ensure we deliver long lasting and sustainable results.
