One of the technological advantages that we have today is that of connection. I’ve talked about things from the customer relationship perspective. I’d like to have just a few words regarding employees.
The key to any organization’s success is the personnel. There are “hard” skills and “soft” skills that go into employee development. Keeping employees informed is something that any manager/owner needs to stress as well. That being said, there are a number of ways to keep informed. There are many programs that can be done online but in an effort to streamline, have you considered having a mobile application that can do the same thing?
Here’s a short listing of keeping employees connected:
- Job listing (for current or perspective employees)
- Training videos
- Text messaging
- Time schedules
- Ideas forum
Many employers want to hire the best for the position. Aside from letting the employees having first knowledge regarding new positions, posting on the internet via a mobile application is a great way to reward those who utilize the mobile application.
When it comes to training, it is far more time effective to simply show something once rather than having to continually show the same thing repeatedly. Depending upon business nature, the training video can be used alone or in conjunction with a “hands on” approach. The video once saved works as a refresher as well.
Text messaging is a very simple way to eliminate phone trees which are most prevalent during times of inclement weather. This can be used to communicate not just with the clients but employees as well, keeping them as safe as possible.
The time schedule is something that varies at times and once a person get a paper copy of it, it may disappear. This could be disastrous when not all employees have had access to it.
Lastly, ideas coming from the bottom up are better than the top down. Bottom up ideas means more things can be generated. The top of the organization is headed by one or very few people comparatively speaking. Employees take more ownership and can feed off of one another for ideas. This gives them the ability to feel valued and not simply just a “cog in the machine.” This can be done utilizing two features within the Mobile App Maker Pro app creation platform: Padlock and Topics.
