The current economic conditions have yielded new challenges that companies are navigating. Globally, we now have millions of people geographically dispersed and working remotely, a competitive job market due to an increase in unemployment, and extreme pressure for companies to improve productivity and profitability in order to weather the storm. If you are in HR or IT, one of the best questions you should ask yourself is: Are we investing in technologies to improve our employee experience?
A strong employee experience is key to attracting and retaining employees. Studies show that employee experience has a strong impact on results; a Gallup study showed that companies with engaged employees outperform the competition by as much as 202%.
One of the areas that companies cannot afford to overlook is the impact that technology has on the employee experience. Here are a few examples:
- A complex technology environment can be frustrating and counterproductive; employees should be able to quickly find information without having to waste time looking for it.
- Employees have technology preferences and want to use the applications that they believe will allow them to do their job as efficiently and effectively as possible.
- When uncertainty arises, employees want clear communication on the company vision, challenges, and leadership’s plans.
- When onboarding, and throughout the employee’s journey, they want the ability to access training materials.
In 2020, with less employees working in a “physical office,” an engaging digital workplace is critical to access and connect with our peers and coworkers.
